Usually can be patted with a dry towel and vacuumed at least once a week. The cloth sofa should be vacuumed regularly. If it can be done once a week, the armrests and seat cushions of the sofa are easy to be dirty, and a good-looking sofa towel or large towel should be placed on it. The armrests, backrests and gaps of the sofa must also be taken into account, but when using a vacuum cleaner, do not use a suction brush to prevent damage to the woven threads on the textile cloth and make the cloth fluffy. If the thread is torn, consider using a small vacuum cleaner to clean it. In addition, fabric sofas are not as wear-resistant as leather sofas, so it is best to avoid sitting in the same position. If the loose thread is found, do not cut it by hand, but use scissors to cut it neatly. If the pad is removable, it is best to turn it over once a week to distribute the wear evenly. 

If it is stained with dirt, it can be partially scrubbed with water; if it is a detachable sofa, it can be disassembled, turn the inside out, use a detergent or detergent to soak it with a sponge to clean it locally, and then rinse it with water ; But you should pay attention to whether the cloth is suitable for washing. If it is suitable for washing, it should be removed and cleaned regularly about half a year. The new cloth cover should be sprayed with anti-fouling cleaning agent first to prevent pollution and dust.

When ironing the sheath, it should be noted that some elastic sheaths are easy to dry and iron-free. Even if you want to iron, the appearance of the fabric should be considered. Therefore, ironing the inner side of the sheath is more suitable, and cotton sheaths are not suitable for ironing.
