How to Remove Pen From Microfiber Furniture

No matter how careful you and your family members try to be together with your microfiber sofa, accidents happen. An exploding pen or a pencil left over the sofa with the cap off may leave an ugly ink stain. The sooner you get to the stain, the better chance you have of removing it. Fortunately, microfiber furniture often has removable cushion covers, allowing greater pretreating plus a more thorough washing.

Remove the cover of the microfiber cushion if possible. Most covers have zippers that allow you to take out the foam pad inside.

Fill a small spray bottle with undiluted rubbing alcohol. Place the nozzle to the best mist.

Spray the ink stain with the alcohol and blot the stain with a white rag. Press the rag straight up and down. Do not rub, as this can null the stain.

Spray and blot as many times as required to remove the stain. If the stain is gone following the alcohol treatment, there is no requirement to use the oxygen bleach and wash. Just dry the spot with a blow dryer on low heat.

Mix a scoop of powdered oxygen bleach with sufficient warm water to make a slightly runny glue. Stir till the bleach is fully dissolved.

Apply a spoonful of bleach glue to the spot and wait for 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the cloth to ensure the paste does not dry.

Wash the cover in water in a washing machine. Insert another scoop of oxygen bleach to the washload if needed. Utilize dye-free, unscented laundry detergent.

Dry the cushion at the dryer on low heat to remove any water marks.

Replace the covers on the pillows. Brush the cushion gently with a nylon-bristled scrub brush to restore the grain and remove any remaining water marks.
