This is another idea I'm borrowing from Pinterest. I did this with my own microfiber couches and was blown away with how well it works! I copied and pasted what she said in her original post. (Here is the original site if you would like to check it out (she also has pictures!): Chris and Robin's Nest: How to Clean Microfiber Furniture)

While microfiber is stain resistant, it can be a real challenge to clean because it's a polyester-based material so water will leave a permanent mark when it dries. That means most carpet and upholstery cleaners won't work.

Step 1: Vacuum with a brush attachment to remove any hair/crumbs/etc

Step 2: Spray rubbing alcohol onto the dirty area. This sounds a bit crazy, but it's key. The alcohol won't saturate the fabric and evaporates much quicker than water so it won't leave a mark. Just test in an inconspicuous spot if you're worried about colorfastness.

Step 3: Rub vigorously with a clean scrub sponge. Make sure the scrubbing surface is white or the color could transfer.

Step 4: Let the area dry completely.

Step 5: Rub with a clean, soft scrub brush in a circular motion. Again, be sure to use a brush with white bristles to avoid discoloration. This step fluffs up the surface of the fabric to make it soft again.

I saw that on Pinterest, too. I don't have a microfiber sofa but I tried it on my sofa, anyway. It worked pretty well.
