There are some commercial products on the market that claim to be able to remove all kinds of stains from microfiber, but a home remedy for removing blue biro stains is hair spray - all you need to do is to spray some onto the marks and gently dab it away with a clean cloth. Cologne is another way of getting rid of biro marks from fabrics - and it smells nicer than hair spray! You can also use vodka, or another clear alcohol, if you don’t have any of the other items - just make sure that you don’t soak the fabric.

The trouble is, though, that not all microfiber is the same and so you have to careful. Before you try any remedy check on an inconspicuous area first to make sure that whatever you try doesn’t leave a worse mark than the one that you are trying to get rid of.

Never just use soap and water to clean microfiber; if you do there is a very good chance that you will create some permanent water marks. Although it is an excellent fabric for repelling small spills of water, if the water actually soaks in, you’ll know about it. If you do have a water spill make sure that you dab the microfiber rather than rubbing it in.

The same thing goes for oil and fat-based stains; microfiber is excellent at trapping oil so it makes it a good choice when it comes to cleaning other items, but in furniture, this plus becomes a definite disadvantage, so greasy fingers must be avoided at all costs.

Microfiber is actually polyester so basically, the majority of things that will clean polyester will clean microfiber. You may find, though, that after you have cleaned microfiber, it becomes hard. To resolve this, simply rub the affected area with a soft brush.
