A sofa is one of the most used pieces in a home. And its cleanliness, many times, is an unknown and frightening world. Today in our blog we want to tell you how to clean the tissues of the sofas that you can have at home.
First, we must clarify that each upholstery has its own cleaning instructions and that the store should be asked where we bought it to be clear about what we can do and what not.
Many covers can be machine washed in a normal program with cold water, although there are cases that we must wash them by hand. A removable sofa is one of the best options when it comes to easy cleaning. In the case of sofas that are not removable, a steam engine can always be helpful and the cleaning instructions do not say otherwise.
Vacuuming the entire sofa at least once a week will help the dust to not accumulate. Beware of delicate tissues, use a gentle cycle in these cases.
In the case of superficial stains, it is important to treat them immediately with a damp cloth that does not drip. If the stain is liquid or viscous, the excess must be removed immediately with a cloth but without rubbing. Trick: if the stain is fat absorb it with salt or chalk. Then we will use a dry stain remover and remove it with a brush after a few minutes. In the case, if you do not have stain removers you can use a mild soap for clothes diluted in water.
If you want to use a new cleaning product, try it first in a place that looks little in case it stains or fades such as behind or on a piece of leftover cloth.
