So a lot of our customers have been wondering: how to take care of the bench cushions when they are not removable to throw it to washing machine. Sure, you can drop them of to the dry cleaners, but if you wish to take away a few spots, or a disaster happened just right before the party that you planed, I am here to help you!
The best way to clean couch stains is to wipe the couch with the correct cleaning solution (depending on the fabric). Focus on scrubbing the stained areas and then allow the couch to dry.
The following tips should do the trick when it comes to cleaning each type of fabric, but make sure you check that cleaning tag and test products in an inconspicuous spot before applying them to the whole couch.
Applying baking soda
Sprinkle the fabric with baking soda, and let it sit for at least 20 minutes. (You can leave it there for up to an hour.) Using a brush attachment, vacuum the couch to remove the baking soda.
Homemade fabric cleaner
While the baking soda sits on the couch, make this simple cleaner to tackle any remaining stains. Combine 1 tsp. dishwashing liquid, 1 Tbsp. white vinegar and 1 cup of warm water in a small spray bottle. Next, add 1 tsp. baking soda and quickly screw the top onto the spray bottle. (Baking soda and vinegar will create a lot of bubbles when combined!)
Car seat cleaner
This one is my favourite hack! It works wonders to take out any spots fast. Car fabric sprays are stronger than regular, so you will be sure that they will work. Just spray it on the dirty area, wait a moment while it is start to foam, and then just wipe it off with the cloth.
So these are a few simple quick tricks to take away those spots without dry cleaning!
