HOW TO PUT ON A SLIPCOVER?
Gently pull relaxed fitting slipcover down over the top of the piece, carefully working it from top to bottom; front to back. It might be necessary to tuck here and there to achieve the look you want. Place the seat cushion on the back edge (notice the front edge is rounded). Now start to put the cushion cover on the front with the zipper toward the back. Fold loose back pillows or throw pillows in half before stuffing into pillow covers, and then work corners of pillows into corners of pillow covers. There's a certain relaxed feel and look to your slipcover. Most large creases and wrinkles will fall out in a few days.
HOW TO CLEAN STAINS FROM YOUR UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE?
Few Simple Rules:
Remove stain immediately. Many spots are harder to remove if allowed to dry.
Remove excess moisture with tissue by blotting. If stain has dried, then brush and vacuum to remove loose particles before further cleaning. After removing excess moisture, or dried particles, moisten the area with upholstery cleaning agent, or foam, and then blot. Do not scrub. Repeat until stain disappears. After the fabric has dried vacuum thoroughly.
If the stain cannot be removed by this method, then use a professional cleaning company.
