Polyurethane foam is used in items which include memory foam mattresses, children's furniture, and pillows. Fabric made with polyurethane foam is becoming increasingly popular and is a modern alternative to traditional fabrics. These fabrics stay fresh-looking with regular spot cleaning.


Step 1

Wipe down your polyurethane foam fabric with a microfiber cloth. Make sure all loose dirt and debris are removed.

Step 2

Create a mixture of one part white vinegar and two parts tap water.

Step 3

Wipe down the fabric with a cotton cloth soaked in the solution. Allow the solution to rest on the fabric for thirty minutes. This will disinfect the fabric. Polyurethane foam will not absorb the solution.

Step 4

Rinse the fabric with warm water. Allow to air dry.
