Spilled liquid on the couch? Don´t panic !
If, by chance, you spill some liquid on the couch, don’t despair. Take a paper towel and try to blot up as much of the liquid as you can, but don’t rub it, that way the liquid won’t spread (because we don’t want a copy of Jabba the Hutt on our couch).
After that, you can use a little neutral liquid detergent and water to clean the rest and finish with a dry cloth.
