Upholstery wash

Clean textiles with upholstery washer!

Due to our own needs, we have purchased a upholstery cleaner. Upholstery washer can be used to wash nearly everything that absorbs any water. Washing is done by spraying water from the wash handle to the suction piece. The suction piece sucks the washing liquid through the textile and removes dirt and loose dust as it goes. Compared to other cleaning methods (washing foam or tamping), it does not push the dirt deeper into the material, but sucks everything out. The upholstery cleaner is therefore ideal for mattresses, car seats, carpets, sofas, for example. Because of its method of operation, it is not suitable for washing floors or leather surfaces.

The device is easy to use. Detergent (eg 1 tablet) and hot tap water (below 60 ° C) are added to the back up to the max mark (or less). The unit has two buttons, one for switching the washing liquid pump on and off, and the second button to turn suction on and off. Washing (in a dirty case) is done by pre-moistening the object with the washing liquid, i.e. the washing liquid is applied by means of a detergent pump alone, by squeezing the trigger in the wash handle. The actual washing is done with the suction and the washing liquid pump on, slowly and gently sucking while giving the washing water as needed (you will notice if you give it too much). This is repeated as long as there is enough dirt (or the nerves last if there is something really dirty)

Tips for washing

  • Hot water improves the washing quality
  • Let the applied washing water act (soaking) for a better washing result
  • The first time you wash it with just plain water, you get a surprising amount of dirt (you need less detergent for the whole job)
  • After washing, the textiles are moist and they should be dried in a well-ventilated place
  • Specific stains may be exposed to other substances. For example, the ballpoint pen ink or felt tip pen (sharpie) ink comes with alcohol. Be sure to check that the alcohol (or other substance you use) does not cause any problems with the textile or its color (so try carefully). Isopropanol alcohol is generally safe for many materials and can be directly applied and rubbed on the stain.
