This is not a demonstration of an amazing transformation, just cleaning of usual daily grime build up. I had tried the usual "specialist wipes" but found them totally useless to use. My sofas are 5 and a bit years old now. It may not be very obvious from the photos but they are definitely a shade or two lighter, closer to their original new state. The dirty cloth on the "before" picture is a terry cloth I used to wipe the excess, that was the state of the cloth and application sponge after cleaning the 2-seater and one cushion of the 3-seater. I didnt start out to submit "my story" so these are not true before/after photos. I still have the backs of the sofas to do but need my son at home to move them as it is heavy furniture, both are recliners.

Use gentle pressure, circular motion can get tiring, but so worth the effort
Start at the top of the furniture and work your way down
I used the Tampico brush where there were many creases either through use or manufacture I.e. around the front of the armrest
Hopefully here you can see that the middle section is yet to be cleaned and this sofa is not used as much as the 3-seater
Again, hopefully you will be able to see that this time the middle section has been cleaned, this is still the 2-seater
This is a before shot and hopefully you can see the dirt on the crease in the cushion (looks like shadow)
This is after cleaning but before adding the conditioner. Again I hope you can see that the shadow has gone, leaving just the crease.
