How to Clean Sofa

The couch is probably the most-used seat in any household. After all, it’s where guests sit, where family members work on homework together, and where you relax after a long day at work or school. It’s also not the simplest piece of furniture to clean. Here are two methods for cleaning your sofa: wet cleaning and dry cleaning.

Wet Cleaning Your Sofa

If your kids spilled soda, threw up on it during dinner, or just made a general mess of things; you should take care of the stain ASAP before it dries, becomes harder to remove, or sets in permanently (if it can set in). Wet cleaning involves using water (or anything wet) to remove stains from your sofa.

Wet cleaning is the easiest way to spot clean your sofa. Fill a spray bottle with water, add some dish soap, and spritz it onto the soiled area on your sofa. Gently rub at the stain with a sponge or rag until it begins to come loose. Vacuum up any residual dirt or grime when you are finished scrubbing at the stain.

Dry Cleaning Your Sofa

If wet cleaning just isn’t cutting it for getting out tough stains, you can try dry cleaning your couch instead. Vacuuming helps somewhat, but sometimes not enough of the oil or grease in a stain comes up into the vacuum bag. Dry cleaning uses something called “d cloths.” These are better at picking up dirt than even the brush roll on most vacuum cleaners.

Another alternative is to use a commercial furniture cleaner or spot remover, available at any grocery store or department store. Just spray it onto the soiled area of your sofa and scrub it in with a sponge or rag until you get the desired results. Vacuum up any residue when you are finished cleaning your couch.

Just For Fabrics

If you’re not sure what material your sofa is made out of, check for labels that tell you this information. If there are none, you can still try using one of these cleaners.

These products are safe for all fabric types, including suede and leather, but be sure to test them on the underside of the couch before spraying them on the entire surface. You can also use these cleaners safely on cushions that are removable, making it easy to clean them separately in your washing machine.

If you need to know how to clean the sofa, all you have to do is follow these simple steps.

After vacuuming or spot cleaning your sofa, mix up some laundry detergent and water in a bucket or bowl; make sure you use enough soap so that there’s plenty of sudsing action happening! Use a sponge or rag and start scrubbing away at those stains. When they’re gone, dry the cushion with a towel and vacuum once more for good measure. Vacuum up any residue when finished with your couch and enjoy sitting back and relaxing on a freshly cleaned sofa.

If you have a microfiber couch, you should take care not to use any chemicals or cleaners that contain bleach. This will cause the fabric to degrade and ruin your couch. If the stain is particularly tough, consider using rubbing alcohol instead of water for cleaning it off, as this can remove stubborn stains without causing damage.

 The one downside of investing in a leather sofa is the hefty price tag involved with maintaining it. There are many benefits to having a leather sofa, but none of them outweighs all those expensive cleanings required throughout its lifetime.

 When spills happen on your beautiful leather couch, quickly wipe them off before they have a chance to set into the material damage it! You should also keep your leather sofa free of all furniture polish and other harsh chemicals, as these can quickly degrade the material.
