The most comfortable place in the house is without a doubt the couch. A place to gather and be cozy! However, our couch is daily exposed to food and various drinks. As a result, it becomes prone to stains and dirt as well as bad odors. It is therefore essential to clean it from time to time in order to preserve it. So here are some tips on how to clean it.

Remove dust and dirt

The first step is the removal of accumulated dust and dirt. This step is essential to perform a thorough cleaning of your couch. There are various ways to do this step:

  • Use a cloth

The first method is to carefully wipe the surfaces of the couch with a dry cloth. This will help you remove accumulated dirt and dust.

  • Use a hard brush

The hard brush is a superb ally in removing dust and dirt. Unlike the rag, it could also be effective in removing some stains. It is also better to use a hard brush with natural bristles, such as bamboo.

  • Use a vacuum cleaner

The last but not least method is to use a conventional or handheld vacuum cleaner. This is the most standard option for removing dust and dirt from your couch.

Products to clean the couch

After removing the surface of all dirt and dust, it remains to proceed with the cleaning. Before proceeding, we recommend you to check the indications on your sofa. Generally, you will find a label with cleaning directions, depending on the type of fabric of your couch. If needed, you can get a bottle of our biodegradable cleaning product.

  • Cleaning with vinegar

For this type of cleaning, you will need white vinegar and water. Mix one cup of water to one teaspoon of vinegar. Then pour your mixture into a spray bottle and spray the liquid on the dirty areas. With a cloth, rub the area to be cleaned and blot up the excess.

  • Cleaning with baking soda

Baking soda has proven itself many times over, so it’s no surprise that it’s here. Known as an all-purpose product in the household, it is also effective in eliminating bad odors that can come from the couch. Simply sprinkle it on the fabric of your couch, let it sit for a few hours and vacuum it up. Baking soda can also be used against stubborn stains. To do this, mix a tablespoon of water with a tablespoon of baking soda. Then apply the mixture to the stain and leave it on for at least 20 minutes. Then clean with a brush and vacuum up the excess.

  • Cleaning with dish soap

However, if your couch is made of synthetic fabrics, you should know that they must be treated in a simple way. If this is your case, mix a little water with dish soap and apply the mixture to the dirty area. Wipe with a cloth and make sure not to press the surface too hard.

Cleaning your couch cushions

Also, cleaning the cushions is not out of the question. If your couch cushions are in covers, it is simple to put them in the wash occasionally. However, don’t forget to check the labels. Otherwise, the methods suggested above can be applied as well.

Drying the couch after cleaning

After your cleaning, you need to think about drying your couch. This can be done by wiping it several times with a dry cloth or by putting a fan in its direction.
