We use a variety of methods depending on the type of fabric, color fastness and soiling level. Our primary method is a small 2-quart pump sprayer with a foaming tip. We then agitate with a natural sponge or a horse hair brush. This works for 95% of synthetic fabrics. 

For more sensitive fabrics, such as Haitian cotton or other natural materials, we tend to use a bucket and whip the solution into a foam. Using a natural sponge, we apply the foam to the fabric and then rinse, extract and dry quickly using towels.

We use pump up sprayers. They have better control and accuracy when working around furniture and cleaning upholstery.

 Plain water creates a chemical reaction when mixed with the seed particles, resulting in semi-permanent brown stains.
 
And what about it? Its one fabric i woundn't HWE......Confused

I have used a hydro force sprayer on upholstery myself. I don't reccommend it but I have had to use it on very heavily soiled pieces of furniture before when I knew a small sprayer would not cut it. It is a tool of the trade. Sometimes I would like to trade it in but HA What Can I say. That hasn't already been said.

I use chapin units I get from Jerry's which although it is local only beats out Home Depot and Lowes since we deal with local people and not corporations that leech profit centers by sending them to a far away office.

These are great and you can get different nozzles for them.  Available in up to 3 gallons.
Are you in a high paying business or are you just a self employed low paid grunt who thinks this business provides dignity?
