    I used a damp enjo cloth for spot cleaning and then actually hired a professional for a deeper clean

    A mix of half metho and water in a spray bottle then a steamer (we bought a cheap one from kmart) and cleaned ours.

    Steamer warning though - the attachments melted their way off so now we have to hold them on when using it

    Would a steamer work on older marks?

    Combined with the metho and water mix it did on ours, until the little miss (1yo) covered one of them in red pen! (Which you can get off using hair spray I since learnt & if I didn't care about our couch so much next time id probably use hair spray to clean the couch before steaming but I like to experiment) 😂

    Windex with a damp cloth. Sounds weird but it works really well. There's a cleaning group on fb that swears by it, some of their before and afters are amazing.

    It's called Laundry Love & Science. I think it started being about washing primarily but is now general cleaning. It's American so some of the products they all recommend aren't available here but there are plenty of Aussies/ Kiwis etc in the group too.
