Your upholstered furniture can take a beating, as a sofa, loveseat, or chair are some of the most commonly used furniture pieces in your home! However, with the consistent use of these pieces comes stains, spills, and other day-to-day accidents that can leave your upholstery looking lackluster and dirty. Here are our industry expert’s top tips to clean your upholstery, leaving it looking and feeling good as new!
Vacuum: To begin cleaning your upholstery you will need to properly vacuum the piece of furniture. To properly vacuum you will need to cover every inch of the piece, getting the sides, back and middle, dust is everywhere so it is crucial that you do this.
Remove Debris: If there is a solid stain on your upholstery, lift as much of it up as you can. Never rub!! You can scrape, blot, or pull the debris up, and use a bristle brush if needed.
Blot the Stain: If you have a liquid stain, blot it up with a paper towel!
Make the Cleaning Solution: Next, you will need to prepare a water-based cleaning solution. To do so, mix ¼ cup of dishwashing liquid and one cup of warm water then whisk it together until suds begin to form.
Rub The Stain With The Solution: Dip the sponge into the mixture and rub away the stain.
Rinse: Blot away any remaining solution and let it dry, away from direct sunlight.
