Upholstered furniture refers to any kind of furniture that has undergone upholstery. Upholstery is the process of adding coils, webbing, padding and batting to wooden frames then covering them with fabric. Sofas, dining chairs, ottomans and even some beds all fall under upholstered furniture. They also fall under the most difficult to clean pieces. Today we bring you tips on methods to get your upholstered furniture clean.

You Will Need:

  • Baking powder

Baking powder is an effective deodoriser. If you want to remove odours and light stains from your furniture. Apply some baking powder and let it sit 15 minutes or even overnight before you vacuum it off. For deep cleaning mix dry carpet powder with baking powder and let it sit for an hour before you vacuum.

  • Upholstery cleaner

Use a suitable upholstery cleaning solution for your furniture. There are different formulations for different kinds of fabric. Spot clean the fabric using a piece of cloth that does not run. Upholstery cleaners are available in your local supermarket. Different types of fabric require different solvents for cleaning.

  • Vinegar

White vinegar is a perfect cleaning solution that is easy to make when you do not want to spend money on cleaning solutions. Mix equal parts of vinegar and water and put in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture on a rag and use it to wipe down the fabric. Allow the fabric to air dry.

  • Steam Cleaner
