Keep us updated!
My thoughts are also using Hatian cotton cleaner.
Also.... doubt it is linen more cotton than anything.
Linen would have never cleaned up ( soil and spills and urine).
Nothing is more stainable than linen ( flax) .
When they say " We got out the good linen's" it was never linen... always cotton.
Just sayin ... could be wrong.
Good luck Sonny ... hope the correction goes well

Cleaned using HC mixed with almost boiling water and rinsed with end zone / piping hot water. Applied with sponge on areas effected and got it dry with air movers and a hair dryer on hot setting.

I had to do small sections at a time because the couch is unusually large. You can't see in the photos but it extends about 25 feet.

Cleaned small 4 foot areas at a time and got those bone dry before moving on.

Browning treatment / coffee remover was not doing anything on this.

I think I would have wanted to be around $300 to $350 to clean. If I was sitting there starring at it I might have been higher IDK. I would have priced it at 3 times regular couch and added some because it was Haitian. And that may not have been enough if it browned on me. but so far. Knock on wood.

I would have applied H2O2 with a Persian cat's tail, then alter temperature on surface from 100 degrees to 50 degrees in 1 minute intervals (place thermometer on couch surface) 3 times and the stain would be gone.

I'm just out to sound more complicated and sophisticated than Scott, fellas. I think I got 'em, too.
