new fabric settees - what cleaning products should I have in for spillages?

We have new settees arriving in the next couple of days. It's unrealistic to have a no-eating policy on them for any length of time, so I want to be prepared for yoghurt/chocolate/red wine type stains or spillages.

Any tips or advice?

Weirdly, make-up remover wipes are brilliant for lots of small/medium stains and spills like chocolate.

Did you get them scotch guarded? If not I would call and ask if this can be done. They then won't stain, you just need to clean up spills and every so often get an upholstery cleaner in to clean them professionally.

Ooh, fab, sweary - I'll make sure I'm stocked up with them.

Blunt - we thought they were Scotchgarded, but having read the info thoroughly, we seem to have been sold an insurance policy as opposed to having them physically coated. I am phoning them today to cancel this policy as I'm covered for accidental damage on home insurance.
Plus I was looking at cans of spray and all I can see is warnings of how ridiculously toxic these coatings are, so was wanting to avoid if possible.

Hope you don't mind me jumping on your thread OP but was just going to ask something similar - except mine is an older fabric settee with a half small black and white checked fabric and half black leather design.
We've just moved house and now the settee is in a better light I can see it looks grubby in certain places 😳
Wondered if anyone could help with more ahem, ingrained stains?
