No matter how much you care, upholstery tends to get dirty with time. You will never be able to prevent wine from spilling on your couch. Your kids will never stop climbing on your upholstered chair wearing muddy shoes. Your husband will always spill ketchup on your sofa while enjoying his burger and football.
So, instead of channeling your energy into trying to stop them, why not seek other ways to clean your upholstered furniture?
We have some easy and quick hacks to remove all the older stains and prevent the newer ones from embedding deep into the fibers of your upholstered furniture.
So, let’s not wait any longer and discover the easy ways to remove the ugly stains from your upholstered furniture:
Clean the spill immediately
If someone accidentally spills something on your couch, clean it as soon as possible to prevent the spill from seeping into the upholstered fabric and causing stains.
Whether it is wine, ketchup, or blood, clean it immediately to prevent deep staining.
Make vacuum a routine
A layer of dust and dirt always cover the upholstery. To prevent dust accumulation, make it a habit to vacuum your upholstery regularly.
A vacuum cleaner will suck all the dust and prevent your upholstery from looking dirty.
Clean with a detergent
Do not worry if you have spilled food on your couch, a good quality detergent can come to your rescue.
Using a high-quality detergent to remove a stain always works. Take a microfiber towel and dip it into a detergent solution. Now, clean the stain with a damp cloth. Instead of rubbing it vigorously, blot it on the stain. The stain will fade gradually. Let it dry.
Use flour on the spill
Another hack to clean the ugly spots caused by spills is using flour on the spill. Flour absorbs liquid and prevents it from causing permanent stains on your upholstery.
Whenever you spill something on the sofa, cover the surface with flour, and let it stay for some time before cleaning it with water. You can use any flour for the purpose.
Use a steam cleaner
Does your sofa look like a canvas bearing many colors in abstract patterns? Do you end up spending more money on sofa covers? Are you planning to throw away your old upholstered chairs and buy new ones (not upholstered this time)?
If yes, then you, my friend, need an upholstery steam cleaner.
An upholstery steam cleaner is an efficient cleaning machine that manages to remove even the most stubborn stains. Loaded with the latest technology and many functions, the machine draws dirt and grime settled in the deepest corners and crevices of your upholstered furniture.
Steam upholstery cleaner removes the deeply embedded stains and grease. It also removes all the allergens and harmful biological agents, like bacteria, viruses, mold, dust mites, and other pathogens. All in all, a steam upholstery cleaner not just cleans but sanitises your upholstered furniture.
Make sure you buy a lightweight steam cleaner for easy maneuvering. Fill the tank with cleaning solution and water as recommended by your manufacturer and spray steam on the surface of your upholstery. Drag the attachment over the upholstery to remove excess water. Repeat this process on all the surfaces. Work small sections at a time. Now let the surface dry. Keep the windows open or turn on the fan. You can also use a blow dryer to accelerate the drying process.
