Bye-bye Stains! You can easily remove stains from your sofa with these 3 DIY stain removal methods

In our living room, we spend time relaxing and catching up with friends. Their appearance can be damaged and their lifespan reduced because of spills and stains. Don’t fret, our site upholstery cleaning North Shore has some tips on how to remove stains from your sofa.

Citric Acid and Baking Soda

The two most common household products, vinegar and baking soda, can remove stains from couches. Mix baking soda with water to form a paste. The paste should be applied 30 minutes after it has become stained. A solution of equal parts water and vinegar in a spray can be sprayed on the stained area. Then, repeat the procedure until all stains are gone.

cola club

A common item in the home that will help remove stains is club soda. Let the club soda sit on the stain for 10 to15 minutes. Next, clean the stain until it is gone. To remove tough stains, you can mix club soda with a tiny amount of dish soap.

Alcohol Peroxide

The hydrogen peroxide cleaner is an effective yet gentle solution for removing stubborn stains. Hydrogen peroxide mixed with water can be sprayed on the stain. Then, after allowing it to set for between 5 and 10 minutes with the clean cloth you can dab at the stain until the stain disappears. First, test the hydrogen peroxide in a discrete and small area. This is important because certain fabrics will bleach when it’s exposed.

Try any stain removal product on an inconspicuous, small patch first. This will ensure the material is not damaged. To ensure that you get a complete and safe cleaning, if your stain seems to be a bit more stubborn, do not hesitate to call the professionals at Upholstery Cleaning North Shore.
