You just need a few supplies: bicarbonate of soda, two clean white cleaning cloths and a vacuum with brush attachment.
- Wipe down your couch with a dry, clean cloth or clean stiff brush to get any dust or dried on gunk off.
- Sprinkle bicarbonate of soda on your couch and let sit for at least 20 minutes. If you want to deep clean it, mix in a dry carpet cleaner.
- Vacuum the bicarbonate of soda up with the brush attachment.
- Spot clean any tough stains that remain with a clean cloth and cleaning solution that is suitable for your couch's fabric.
Before you clean the whole couch, spot test the cleaners on a hidden portion of your couch to make sure they don't damage the fabric. Hit the link below for cleaner recommendations and a guide to the treatment tag on your couch (if you can use water to clean it, and so on).
