Which remedies are better for removing stains

A stained sofa spoils the appearance of the interior, and it is very difficult to clean these stains. The older the stains, the more they darken and penetrate deep into the fabric. An unpleasant odor may even appear.

Before calling a cleaning service, you can try to get rid of the stains yourself. You can use improvised means such as baking soda, vinegar, and soap. Read about the most effective ways to clean a dirty sofa in the OBOZREVATEL article.

Soda plus vinegar

Let us emphasize right away: it is strictly forbidden to clean sofas made of leather and leatherette with this method.

Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda and 8 tablespoons of white vinegar to a container of warm water (about 1 liter). Mix thoroughly. Then take any dishwashing detergent and pour 4 tablespoons. You will also need glycerin - 2-4 tablespoons are enough.

When the solution is ready, use a brush or sponge to rub it into the dirty spots on the sofa. Lubricate the heaviest stains with plenty of foam. Leave the product on for at least 1 hour, then wash with a clean sponge and running water.

It is important not to leave the sofa wet. This can cause tissue rot and mold. Dry it with a hair dryer.

The good old fashioned way

This method, in the absence of alternatives, was very popular in the USSR. Back then, laundry soap was used everywhere - from washing to cleaning furniture.

Pour a liter of warm water into a container. Take a grater and rub the laundry soap. It is better to add a few tablespoons of detergent. The main thing is to get a lot of foam. It is with the foam that you need to wipe the soiled places on the sofa. This should be done using a brush.

After that, wash off the foam with a clean sponge dipped in water. And then blow dry again.

Shaving foam

Shaving foam should not be used on leather and leatherette. Other fabrics will be perfectly cleaned with this product.

Apply a thick layer of shaving foam to the soiled areas. Wipe the sofa with a brush or sponge. Repeat this until the stain disappears. Then clean the sofa with a sponge and warm water.
