Kirby Upholstery Cleaning Instructions

Kirby is perhaps best known for their vacuum cleaners. But the company also makes a number of other carpet and fabric cleaning products. Kirby's Foam Carpet and Fabric Cleaner is designed to clean all types of upholstered furniture. But before you apply it to your own upholstery, its a good idea to test it out first. Spray an inconspicuous part of the upholstery, and wait 24 hours. If the fabric's color or integrity remains unchanged, it is safe to use on the item of furniture.
