Mt Steamer,

I have been in the business for 45 years, have given and received training - but we have never met. I have however met a large number of trained professionals, so maybe you don't get out enough Smile

Oh, and the majority of suites that I clean are either cotton or linen, so I think I know the fibre quite well.

What I ment to say is there there is no text book method.... People use many different methods to clean the same thing. Changing an alternator on a BMW can only happen one way....a mechanic has to be trained and become a Trained Professional..

if you think you are a trained professional after taking the IICRC course for furniture...I LAUGH...

Most cleaners come up with methods that work for them...

I like to use a self neutralizing ammonia cleaner with cotton. Staying with a low PH helps with yellowing and an acid rinse is also good. We use Dry tools which keeps it relatively dry. The water ring tip is a good one and if you see water rings on furniture their is a good chance it is cotton. They use to say to clean to your most sensitive fiber and cotton is sensitive to PH. So even if it is just 10 % cotton, clean it like its 100% cotton.

Some cotton can't be cleaned with water. What is the cleaning code symbol on the piece?
