Fabric Care: Cleaning Is Much More Than Appearance!

Thursday, October 28th
9:30AM - 11:30AM

Location: AJ Maison at IMS
275 Market Street #308
Minneapolis, MN 55405

This course explains how important it is to care for your upholstered furniture and emphasizes how cleaning is much more than appearance. Not only will you learn more about different fibers, but we will also look into how to read a cleaning code label and what the different codes mean. Not many people are aware of the bacteria and dirt that lives on a seemingly clean piece of furniture. This course will teach you what exactly is living on your furniture and how to protect your upholstered furniture and yourself for health and safety
