Out of the Blue

I have my grandfather's old easy chair up here in my office, which is covered in this mustardy/gold upholstery that clearly demonstrates it was last re-covered in the 1960s. In spite of this, it has held up surprisingly well over the years, as the fabric seems to wear like iron. The Gunnar-man put this to the test recently by leaving a nasty little vomit stain on it; My canine companion curls up in the chair on occasion, and I guess it's so comfortable he could yak while reclining. This looked like it might not come out, and even after I sprayed this harsh cleaner on it, there was an ominous brown patch left behind. Then I followed the next step of vacuuming the spot after it dried, and it came perfectly clean like it never happened. The spray I used was Oreck Spot Remover for Stains, in case you're curious, but I think the credit goes to this crazy fabric they used... it's probably some mix of teflon, asbestos, and the flesh of virgins that would be completely impossible to make anymore.
