House Cleaning Tips: How to Clean a Fabric Sofa
Take Care of The Stain Promptly
You never want to leave any liquids or dirt sitting on the fabric. The longer you let the stain sit, the harder it will be to clean. So, try to take care of the stain as fast as you can.
Check the Tags on the Couch
Don’t put any fabric cleaner on your couch. First, check the manufacturer’s recommendations. This way, you know exactly how you should clean the fabric. Generally, you will find this information on the tags attached to the sofa.
Use a Bristle Brush
It is recommended to use a brush or bristle tool. This tool will help eliminate dust and other particles and make it easier to get the stain out.
A vacuum is used to get rid of crumbs and other particles. Vacuum the fabric before applying a cleaning solution to the stain, so loose debris isn’t ground into the fabric while cleaning.
Use Baking Soda
Baking soda can be used on a small portion of the couch. Put the baking soda on the stain in wet or dry form, rub it in with the bristle tool, and then let it sit for at least fifteen minutes. Afterward, you can vacuum up the dried baking soda residue.
Apply Cleaning Agent
If the stain is still not gone or fully absorbed by the baking soda, you can use a cleaning agent. Test the spot cleaner on an unseen area of the sofa fabric to ensure it will not discolor the fabric. If there is no problem, use the cleaner on the spot according to the package directions.
Use a Towel to Dry the Couch and Let it Air Out
Once the cleaning solution has been used on the couch, you can start to dab a towel on the spot to dry the sofa. Do this using a gentle blotting action, and then allow your couch to air dry overnight.
