Five Tips for Cleaning Upholstery


Has the stain on your couch been eyeing you for too long? What about the wine spill on your dining room chairs that is still there from the last time you hosted? Or are your car seats looking worn from hours upon hours driving? If you’re ready to tackle cleaning upholstery, use these tips to make the project go smoother.

Tips for Cleaning Upholstery

1. Read the label and do your research.

Not all fabrics should be cleaned the same way. For example, you don’t use water when cleaning your microfiber couch. See if you can find the specific cleaning instructions for the item you are cleaning. If not, be sure to research the right products for the fabric.

2. Vacuum first.

Before working to remove stains from upholstery, you should vacuum the surface. Otherwise, you could be scrubbing crumbs into the fabric!

3. Use the right cloth.

Be careful when choosing a cloth to use when cleaning upholstery. While it might be tempting to use the hand towel that you retired to a cleaning cloth, you might accidentally transfer color to your fabric. Using a white cloth is always best.

4. Give it time to dry.

Upholstery with cushions provides the perfect environment for mold to grow. Give the fabric time to dry in an area with plenty of ventilation.
