1stHave a client sent me this pic of a silk sofa. At least she said it’s silk. Looks like cotton to me. Any suggestions?
It probably is silk or has silk highlights, but do a burn test to be sure.
I agreed with everything SBSSCN said until he mentioned CTI.
2 possible routes I would consider depending upon the condition of the fabric and how much soiling.
1) HWE with mild alkaline (8.0 or so) like Avenge Upholstery cleaner (not the Heavy Duty version). Mild acid rinse like Fab-Set at a few ounces per gallon. Dry quickly.
2) Clean with foaming shampoo (Bridgepoint Fabric Shampoo). Just use the foam, a sea sponge and some fiberglass window screen. RInse with acid and low moisture tool or wait until dry and vacuum.
