How do you remover stain stains from your MAKE nordic furniture

Sustainable furniture is not only about the materials it is made from. It's also about classic design and how long you have them. It is therefore important that we take good care of our furniture by treating it as well as possible and ensuring that it stays free of stains. Below, we have collected our best advice on how to best get rid of the stains. In this way, your furniture can live its best life and last for many years to come.

Fabric furniture

Should stains appear on one of your fabric furniture, it is important that you start removing them immediately, in order to achieve the best result. It requires quite a few repetitions, so plenty of time must be set aside for it.

Remove coffee, tea and red wine

For thin liquids, such as coffee tea, red wine, etc., you should use clean, lint-free, non-staining cloths, lukewarm distilled water or sparkling water, and mild non-staining washing-up liquid.
Avoid using other stain removers unless you get professional help.

Always try to treat the stain immediately. We recommend a quick action, as it gives the best result. If the stain has dried in, you must start by vacuuming the entire surface very thoroughly. To avoid shields, the entire seating surface should be treated. IMPORTANT: you need to devote plenty of time to the process for a good result.




    1. Dab up the liquid with a dry, lint-free cloth
    2. Dip the stain and the rest of the surface with sparkling water or distilled water to avoid limescale from water
    3. Use a drop of colorless washing-up liquid or soap suds from washing-up liquid mixed with sparkling water or distilled water
    4. Gently dab the soap into the fabric on and around the stain. You must treat the entire seating surface to avoid streaks.
    5. Do not rub on the fabric! It must be dabbed.
    6. Leave the soap on for a few minutes or an hour before removing if the stain is stubborn
    7. Dab with clean cloths soaked in sparkling water or distilled water, until the soap is gone - the stain is processed from the outer edge towards the center - rinse the cloth continuously to remove soap residue and discoloration from the stain. Remember to treat the entire seating surface.
    8. Finally, dab with a dry, lint-free cloth
    9. A hair dryer with cold air can be used at the end to speed up the drying process, but it is not essential
    10. Repeat if necessary. the treatment several times
    11. Do not use the sofa or chair until the surface is completely dry!

Any stains after stain removal can be caused by dust from the sofa, dirt from the water or limescale in the water. You avoid this by vacuuming your sofa often. When you use clean, low-calcium water or sparkling water, and change it several times while removing stains, you will also avoid stains. You can also treat the entire seating surface to avoid messes on your sofa. If your stains are very stubborn, you can sprinkle potato flour over the wet stain, let it sit for 3 days and vacuum it up thoroughly. If there is still a stain, you can dab with soap suds from mild washing-up liquid without color and/or a little sparkling water. Repeat if necessary. the process with washing-up liquid. Remember to treat the entire seating surface.


Remove ketchup, jam and sauce


For viscous foods, such as ketchup, jams and sauces, start by scraping up as much as possible with a dull knife or spatula before moving on. If the stain is dry, the sofa must be vacuumed first. After that, you must treat the stains in the same way as for thin liquids.

Please note that these tips are for guidance only. Many stains require a special treatment and technique. We therefore recommend always contacting a professional furniture cleaning company before starting the stain removal.


If you have a piece of furniture with the beautiful Dunes leather, a patina will develop over time. Here it is important to be aware that this is an untreated natural material. This means that the leather accepts all grease, dirt, colors and scratches.

Leather is a living material. This means that if spots appear, they will eventually become smaller, lighter and perhaps disappear completely. It is recommended not to use soap and water for this leather. It can lay down the fine down and make the leather dark and smooth.

If you want to know more about leather care and stain removal, we refer you to leather specialists or to the recommendations from Sørensen Læder

Stains on SPOOR Leather

If you have the traceable leather from SPOOR on your furniture, quick action is important if an accident occurs. If you spill on your furniture with leather from SPOOR, you can easily wipe it off with a wrung out cloth.

Heavy duty

Natural materials such as linen are living materials, just like leather. So if you spill on them, they work, and spots will eventually get smaller, lighten and maybe disappear completely.

If you do spill, it is best to remove as much liquid as possible with a wrung-out, soft cloth. Be careful not to rub the liquid further into the girdle, but rather dab on the exposed area.

It is important that you work in fields to avoid spills or shields. Use mild detergent mixed with water for cleaning. Be careful not to get too much water, as it can cause blisters.

As with other materials, the webbing can be discolored by strongly colored substances, e.g. a new pair of cowboy pants. If you want to protect yourself as much as possible against this, it is recommended to use a cushion in the seat or a blanket.
