Types of stains and best methods to remove them
Non greesy stains from food on your couch
When dealing with this type of stains it is very important that you know tg cause of the stain to avoid ruining your furniture. Go for just soap or a liquid soap with enzymes and cool or warm water. Soak up for a little while before try to rub it off from the furniture.
If it is on a furniture slab or a hard wood surface just rub it off with a piece of cloth along with soap and water too
Greesy stains from food on your couch
Removing this type of stain requires a lot more effort than the non greesy type. Just soap and water can’t work best for this type of stain.
I will advise that you go for baking powder. Start by pouring baking powder on the affected spot and leave for a few minutes. The baking powder will try to soak up the stains away as much as possible.
After which you can now bluff off the excess powder away from your couch and the go in with a little bit of soap and water to clean it off.
Paint and ink stains
Stains of this nature can be a bit very difficult to remove considering their nature. When removing this type of stain the use of soap and water will do almost nothing to it.
For a more better result go for alcohol or turpentine, rub little amounts of it on the stain. This will help dissolve the stubborn stain away.
After then you can now go with your brush, water and detergent to brush off the remaining parts of the stain away from the surface.
This is very common in cases whereby you have a toddler or a pet at home. Sometimes they climb up on the furniture and pee on it leaving behind a bad smell.
All that is required for removing this type of stain is just vinegar and baking soda and your are good to go.
