Our beige couch and love seat have developed a noticeable "blue tinge" from the dark blue jeans. Any suggestions on how to remove this would be appreciated.

I have a fairly new white couch that I love. It’s covered in outdoor fabric and I can just take the cushion covers off and put them in the washing machine. They come out perfect! The back left corner of the couch, under the pillows, however, was always kind of gray, thanks to my dog, who sleeps there. I put a blanket over it, because the Sunbrella cleaner they insisted I use didn’t really work. This last week, I tried using dishwashing liquid mixed in a bowl of water, on a clean washcloth, and the stains just wiped away! They are completely gone! I can’t tell you how happy I am! Thank you for this article.

These tips work for stuffed toys that have battery packs as well and can’t go in the wash.
