Keywords: Alcoholic Beverages, Stains, Soft Drinks

Treat stains as soon as possible after staining. The older the stain, the more difficult it will be to remove.  Some older stains cannot be removed.

Before attempting any home stain removal, always test on a small, hidden part of the upholstery, to make sure the dyes in the fibres will not run.

Once you are certain that you will not damage your beautiful upholstery by spot cleaning, proceed carefully. 

If you are not 100% sure, or if it appears that the solutions may damage your furniture, it’s time to call a professional.  Call and rely on their expertise.
