Spills do happen, and fortunately this piece has slipcover upholstery and if needed, can be removed completely and cleaned thoroughly. Linen is a natural fiber and lifts stains easier than most fabrics. If you find yourself cleaning up a liquid spill, dab the spot with a damp cloth to soak up the liquid. Scrubbing will force the material to penetrate into the fabric which becomes more difficult to clean. When using a cleaner, we find diluted dish soap or laundry detergent to work for most everyday stains and spills.
