A bottle of aerosol hairspray was released on my upholstered chair. The fabric is a rayon/poly/cotton weave. The "spot" covers 1/3 of the back of the chair and is now a solid dark stain (almost like someone painted on Superglue). HELP!
I just researched this for ya. This is what I found:
Wipe up any excess spray. Sponge (the method of using light strokes with a dampened pad working outward from the center of the stain) the stain with a dry-cleaning solvent such as Afta Cleaning Fluid.
Apply a dry spotter to the area and cover with an absorbent pad dampened with dry spotter. Let the cover stay in place as long as any stain is being removed. Change the pad as it picks up the stain. Keep both the pad and stained area moist with dry spotter. On stronger fabrics, tamp (the method of bringing a brush down with light strokes on stained durable fabrics and materials) any dried spray to help loosen it.
Flush (the method of applying stain remover to loosen staining materials and residue from stain removers) the area with one of the liquid dry-cleaning solvents (or reapply K2r Spot Lifter on silk). If any stain remains, sponge the stain with water and apply a wet spotter and a few drops of ammonia. (Do not use ammonia on silk or wool.) Cover the stain with an absorbent pad moistened with wet spotter. Keep the pad in place as long as any stain is being removed. Change the pad as it picks up the stain. Keep both the stain and pad moist with dry spotter and ammonia mixture. Flush with water when stain has disappeared.
Steps to Clean
Mix one (1) tablespoon of liquid dishwashing detergent with two (2) cups of cool water.
Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution.
Blot until the liquid is absorbed.
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until the stain disappears.
