How to remove stains from upholstered furniture

Upholstered furniture is one of the most important items in every home, creating coziness and comfort for the owners. But dust, dirt, stains from food, drinks, and pets can quickly ruin the appearance of a sofa or armchair.

If you don't want to use chemicals for cleaning, OBOZ.UA has found effective tips that will help you quickly cope with this. Before using solutions, check their effect on an inconspicuous area of the fabric.

Soda

This is a natural abrasive that will remove stubborn stains and eliminate unpleasant odors. Mix baking soda and water in a one-to-one ratio to make a thick paste. Apply it to the necessary areas and rub lightly with a soft sponge or microfiber cloth. Then wipe everything again with a damp cloth or napkin and wait for the fabric to dry.

Vinegar

Vinegar is an effective tool for removing stains and pungent odors. Mix vinegar with water in a one-to-one ratio, dampen a sponge with the liquid and apply it to the dirty areas, then wipe it off with a damp cloth.

Lemon juice

Fruit or wine stains often appear on furniture, and lemon will help to cope with this. Squeeze the juice of a lemon into a cup and apply the liquid to the necessary areas with a cloth or sponge, wipe lightly and rinse with a damp cloth. The acid will help dissolve the dirt.

Remember to keep your furniture clean regularly. It is advisable to remove dust and dirt with a vacuum cleaner or brush once a week.
