Samantha Roberson, South Carolina, took to Facebook to share before and after cleaning pictures of her beige felt chair - and the post quickly went viral.
"About once a week I clean my microfibre furniture with Windex because my child is a messy monster and decides to wear everything he eats," she wrote.
"I know I have mentioned it before but I wanted to show the magic!!!!
"All I do is scrub it with Windex and a microfiber towel/rag," Samantha wrote in the caption along with before and after images.
"Share to save a life," she finished.
The tip was posted on the Love What Matters Facebook page and has since been shared over 7,000 times.
The response has been overwhelmingly positive with many saying the trick really works.
“Yes this 100% works by the way,” one mum wrote. “I saw this post earlier and tried it on my micro fibre couch! Works perfectly. I definitely recommend doing this.”
