To remove A&D Ointment from your upholstery, first, using a dull knife, scrape off as much A&D Ointment as possible. Then, sprinkle the soiled area with either cornstarch, talcum powder or salt; rub well and leave until the grease from the ointment is absorbed. Brush off the powder/grease with a soft scrub brush then wipe with a damp cloth. If any residue remains, you can use either upholstery cleaner or mix 1/2 teaspoon liquid dishwashing detergent in a quart of warm water. Beat with a mixer, and clean the furniture using only the suds. Work on a small area at a time, overlapping areas to avoid spotting. Change the rinse water frequently to keep it clean.
