cleaning microfiber couch

Will it ruin the material if I put the cushion covers in the washing machine?

Up until now we've just been spot cleaning it with a wet cloth but I feel like it's time for a good cleaning.   

Re: cleaning microfiber couch

  • I'd be afraid that they might shrink. 
  • I wouldn't do it. I just spot clean.

  • I run mine through the washer periodically, but I kind of have a death wish for my couch.  I just use regular detergent, cold water, no fabric softener, and then air dry.

    FWIW, I hate microfiber and will never have it again.  I can not clean it with soap, nor plain water because it leaves a water spot.  With two cats, two dogs, and a toddler I expected this couch to be able to clean up easily.  Wrong!
