Is microfiber really stain-resistant?

The truth is microfiber is not completely stain-proof. What happens is that the microfiber strands are so closely knitted together that any liquid that is poured on the material does not seep in but instead beads up, allowing it to be cleaned off easily.

Since it not stain easily microfiber fabric usually stays quite clean.  Dust and crumbs can vacuumed or you can use a small soft brush.  Deep cleaning can be done using products that are specifically designed for microfiber material. Using plain water is not advisable.
