‘We know that parents constantly worry about sofas as they're an investment piece for homes,’ says James Lowe, Sofa Expert at Aquaclean. ‘And with kids around they are definitely put through their paces. Aquaclean fabric takes that fear away. And means parents can relax knowing their sofa only needs a few drops of water to look brand new again.’

Using only water to clean provides you with simple fabric maintenance. This means minimal time and effort spent cleaning, if mishaps do happen.
