20 Mule Team Borax. To remove stubborn stains from furniture upholstery, blot up the spill, sprinkle 20 Mule Team Borax to cover the area, let dry, and vacuum. (Before treating, make sure the fabric dye is colorfast by testing an unexposed area with a paste of 20 Mule Team Borax and water.) For wine and alcohol stains, dissolve one cup 20 Mule Team Borax in one quart water. Sponge in the solution, wait thirty minutes, shampoo the spotted area with the hose attachment of a steam cleaner, let dry, and vacuum.

WD-40. To remove chewing gum, crayon, tar, and Silly Putty from most surfaces, spray on WD-40, wait, and wipe.
