Question: I have a dark red couch that is microfiber plush fabric, or what i call swead (or however you spell it) what is the best way to clean baby spit up and other such stains off it. the spell check only does words that sound like what you were typing. Why do people love to start crap. I do still have a warranty with aarons, i am still on a rent to own lease with them. I just wasn't sure if they would come out and clean or how much they would charge.

I just did mine which is dark green microfiber "suede". I rented a carpet cleaning machine and got the extra "upholstery" head (small hand-held sprayer and vacuum unit). I started by pre-treating the stains (in you're case, baby spit is treated with household ammonia, dish soap and water). I let the pretreated areas sit about 15 minutes then I used the machine and little nozzle by starting at the top of the sofa, spraying on the liquid to wet the area, wait about 60 seconds and vacuum it off. The vacuum gets 90% of the humidity and I go over it twice to be sure. Work from the top of the sofa down to the base. The whole sofa took less than 3 hours to dry with the windows open. Microfiber dries fast too without streaks, dye fading or damage! It was really easy and the sofa looks and smells like new!

My best guess is the person eating healthy is going to lose weight. Fast food has a LOT of calories and there is no way you are going to burn them all no matter how active you are. Of course, the way we are created is to eat healthy AND be active. Think of the hunter/gatherer days and what we ate and how active we were.

First, check what the fabric is by looking inside the cushion zipper. Most upholstery fabric cannot be laundered. Also, many fine furniture manufacturers warrant their fabrics and will send a rep out if there is staining or the fabric has become grimy. But, if you did not follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning it or spotting you may have voided the warranty. If the couch is out of warranty, it is usually better to use a dry cleaning method. Why? Wetting most upholstery fabric can cause shrinking and mold or mildew to grow in the foam and batting underneath. Some cleaning companies load their steam/extractors with detergents that contain mold/mildew inhibitors others don't. With the dry granule method they do not damage the fiber nor get the sofa wet enough to make mold a concern. If it is an older couch, you can set up fans to dry it quickly and just want to get by, use a steam cleaning company.

What ever you use, test it first, I found that even water and a soft cloth took the colour out of mine.... Great furniture from DHS. As for the laminate floor, warm soapy water.

If it was me, I'd use a professional cleaning company. If they trash the couch, it's on their heads and they will have to replace if they are worth their salt and reputable. The way I see it, why take chances?

Hudde Originally Answered: When will my system be clean?
Ashley, it will take at least 45 days for you to test clean and here is why. Marijuana has a half-life in your system. How long it takes to leave your system depends on how much you smoke. But the time maxes out at around 45 days. One smoking session for someone with a clean system takes about 3-4 days to be clean. Smoke 2 days later and then have to wait about a week, and so on. The time it will take roughly doubles every time you smoke until it maxes at about 45 days to be clean. So if you are maxed out and you wait about 2 weeks and then smoke again, you're basically back to 45 days. Marijuana can be detected in urine for nearly a week after smoking. Blood tests can be more accurate, and it might take a month to be totally clear. Hair tests show every drug ever taken when that hair was growing - this is why you see so many drug addicts with shaved heads or buzz cuts, by the way. Also by the way: taking laxatives and drinking wacky chemicals won't "cheat" a drug test. It will just make you go to the bathroom! These drug tests are designed by experts who anticipate what the drug user might do. Be very careful of "remedies" for getting around drug tests. They flat out do not work and could do damage to your body. It appears as though someone likes to steal my answer.
