Fabric couches

Cleaning your fabric couches is not a hard task. The items you need are;

– vacuum with a brush attachment 
    – Baking soda
    – Dry carpet cleaning
    – Vinegar 
    – Clean cloth

Start by sprinkling your baking soda on your couch followed by your dry carpet cleaning product. You will have to let it sit for 20-30 minutes. Once the time is up, take your vacuum attachment and baking the mixed powder. You will see your couch will look much cleaner and the fabric will feel softer.

Your Tough stains are next, with your same baking soda sprinkle it on the stain and spray just a bit of your vinegar, after letting it sit for a few minutes, use your clean cloth and scrub it gentle. Now sprinkle more baking soda to soak up the moisture of the vinegar. Then with your vacuum brush extension, remove the leftover baking soda and depending on the stain it should be gone or has fainted to almost gone.

     – To avoid any lingering vinegar smell, use Febreze scented spray for fabric.

Leather/fake leather couches.

Considering the majority of people like the luxury of leather coaches, I really have to give you some tips on cleaning leather couches.

Leather is a much more sensitive material than fabric when it comes to using chemicals, you will use your regular white vinegar to clean your couch. You first need to dust your couch off. Afterward, wet a towel with your vinegar.

Do not apply the Vinegar directly onto the leather couch

If you have some grease stains on the leather, use cornstarch and leave it on the stain for 10-15 minutes before wiping it off. If your couch is much older you may want to treat the leather with some treatment chemicals that you can find in your local Walmart or convince store.

Keeping it clean will result in a longer living couch and not spending another paycheck on a couch any time soon.
