Spot removal is a cleaning method that can be done for several reasons. It will keep the cover clean and stain-free in between washing schedules. It is applicable for covers that cant be dry cleaned or washed trust me, there are some covers that cant be washed at all. Knowing the proper way of spot removal will be handy when you want to maintain its hygiene and cleanliness for a longer period.
You only need a mild detergent, along with clean white cloth, sponge, water, and a small bucket. If you dont have a small bucket, a large bowl will do. Dont forget to remove the futon cover from the mattress first so any excess or remaining water wont seep into the mattress.
You can mix the water and the detergent in the bowl or bucket. With a sponge, moisten it in the water mix and then rub the stain gently until it is completely washed off. If there is any soap left on the cover or the surface, remove it with the white towel.
Now, rinse the sponge and moisten it with the fresh water. Again, the sponge is used to rinse the affected area from the remaining soap. You dont want any white residue from any soap left on the cover. Get additional information on this at futon covers. Air dry it after everything is cleaned thoroughly.
