  1. Steam and Wipe: Start by using a steamer on the stained area to break down the stain. Allow the steam to penetrate the fabric, then gently wipe the area with a microfiber cloth.
  2. Apply and Brush: Apply a suitable cleaning solution to the stain and let it dwell for a few minutes. This allows the solution to work effectively. Next, use a soft-bristle brush to gently agitate the stain and loosen it further.
