Rating Furniture Cleaning Services

In yesterday's piece, my Wall Street colleagues and I tested upholstery cleaning services that come to your house and spit-shine the furniture. It's a route more consumers are taking to save money and make their furniture last longer in tight economic times.

While all our wares turned out a bit brighter, we found some spots -- coffee and ink for instance -- tougher to delete. We also found some services touting "green" and "organic" solutions, though there is still confusion in the marketplace about what this exactly constitutes.
