My microsuede barstools and sofa rank at the top of my very short list of ultra-durable furniture. These pieces have withstood repeated and intense scrubbings. Everything from red Jell-O, ink, crayon, dog funk, peanut butter, chocolate, and countless other food products come off easily with the help of my Sal Suds.
Microsuede is a tightly woven fabric made from plant or synthetic materials. In look and feel it greatly resembles suede, without the cost, animal-impact, or uncleanability.
Here’s the recipe for my All-Purpose Cleaning Spray with Sal Suds to which I refer in the video:
- Fill a spray bottle with 1 quart (1L) of water. Add 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) Sal Suds. (The water goes in first, or else you’ll be fighting the outpouring of bubbles if you try to fill it after the Sal Suds.)
Also, always test your fabric in an inconspicuous spot to make sure of color-fastness. Let your test spot dry before proceeding.
