Sprucing up my sweet secondhand sofa

We just bought an awesome leather sofa for a good price on Craigslist. The leather is beautiful and we found out when we went to look at it that it contains down-wrapped spring-core cushions... which the internet tells me is basically the best thing to have inside sofa cushions. Except - a few of the springs are poking up funny. [more inside]

Help me clean my couch

We have a two-year old sofa that looks terrible and needs to be cleaned. The upholstery is 100% light-colored polyester that looks like linen. The problem is that any water leaves a very noticeable ring on the fabric. Although we're pretty good about keeping food and drinks off the couch, we have a very drippy-nosed greyhound who has left dozens of little drip marks all over the cushions. Cleaning with water and a wet rag only makes the problem worse. I also tried using Goddard's Dry Cleaning fluid (a solvent), which just left a whitish spot. Any suggestions? Would hiring a professional do the trick?
