Upholstery
  1. Blot and dab up as much of the spillage as possible.
  2. Mix 1-2 tablespoons of liquid hand dish washing detergent (e.g. fairy liquid!) with two cups of cool water.
  3. Use a clean white cloth and lightly sponge the stain with the detergent solution.
  4. Blot and dab until the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 until the stain disappears – deep stains equals more blotting!
  6. Finally, sponge with cold water and dab dry.
