What's the worst thing that can happen using this method?

The most important thing for you to know about Clean Safe Products is that it isn't just safe for ourselves and our families. It's safe for our fabric. 

If you follow directions, you will avoid the two biggest concerns when cleaning soft surfaces...  

1. Over wetting. This can cause a water stain on certain fabrics or possibly bleeding which can cause unstable colors (usually red) to migrate into other colors. Always wring out the Green Mitt so it's damp but not wet. 

2. Losing the feel of the fabric. This makes a fabric that has a nice soft feel to it, like a velour does, feel a little rough.

Most fabrics manufactured in the last 30 to 40 years are from a synthetic yarn that doesn’t leave this affect, but we can make sure by testing first. Simply dampen an area that you won't notice (the back, zippered, part of a cushion), wait 5 to 10 minutes until it dries and then feel it. If it feels nice and soft, you’re good to go.

Other than that, the worst thing that can happen is you don't get the results you're looking for because you have permanent discoloration. This happens when your fabric is damaged due to lack of attention or overuse.

Think of it like this... if you drive a car that’s beat up, rusty, dented and dirty through a car wash it’s going to look better. But the rust and dents will still be there. If you take care of your fabrics from the start with the Green Mitt Kit, you won't have this issue.
