DIY fabric sofa cleaning tips

After a long day, your cozy couch is the perfect place to unwind, which sometimes involves stinky feet or food spilling over. You might not realize your couch is a bit dirty, especially if it has a dark colour but giving it a deep clean helps remove built-up stuff that you'd rather not think about — like dead skin cells, stew and leftover bits of food. If you have a fabric couch, here's how to make your sofa look brand new again.

Step 1: Identify the Fabric

Couches come in lots of shapes and materials, with some even having removable and washable cushions. For a cotton a cotton-blend or linen couch, you can easily clean it with natural ingredients. Before getting started, first give it a good glance to figure out what fabric it's made from.

Step2: Prep Your Couch

Get your couch ready for grooming by using a clean and dry white hand towel or washcloth to brush the entire piece of furniture, breaking up any dried-on spots and removing any bits that have made homes of nooks and crannies. You can also use a stiff brush for this step. Avoid using any coloured towels or sponges, as the dye may alter the colour of your couch.

Step 3: Removing Odours

Once you’ve removed any crumbs and loosened any stains, the next step is to remove any unpleasant odours. Baking soda is a great, budget-friendly solution for this. Simply sprinkle the sofa with baking soda and leave to sit on the furniture for at least 20 minutes and then vacuum the sofa with a brush attachment. This should leave your sofa looking new and fresh.

 Step 4: Managing stains

The best and most budget-friendly way to manage stains on your sofa is to make your own cleaning solution. Simply mix a teaspoon of washing-up liquid, white vinegar, baking soda and warm water – baking soda and vinegar work really well together, removing any difficult stains quite quickly. Just make sure to test the solution on a hidden piece of the fabric, to make sure it doesn’t discolour your sofa.
