Dyeing Using A Fruit Tree Sprayer

I have a sectional sofa that is made of regular fabric, not heavy duty couch fabric. I would like to dye it using a fruit tree sprayer. What type of dye do you recommend? My sister tried this with a rug she had and it worked beautifully.
If I can’t dye it, is that anything that can clean it?

Dear Rita,
I do not recommend dyeing upholstered furniture. Please look at my column of July 2003 for my comments in this area. I don’t know what system your friend used, but a lot depends on the fiber content of the thing being dyed. You can investigate having the sofa professionally cleaned, or try a rent-it-yourself carpet cleaning type system. Probably time for re-upholstery.
