Three Ways To Make Your Sofa Clean As New
If the sofa has been used for a long time, it collects some dirt and dust. The sofa must be cleaned regularly and the dirt on sofa surface removed or it will harden and breed bacteria.
Here we share some practical methods for you to clean and maintain the most common fabric and leather sofas.
Non-detachable sofa fabric
To clean the non-removable cloth fabric, use a foam type professional cleaner. Spray some foam on a clean white cloth and wipe it repeatedly on the stain until the stain comes off, and then let it dry naturally. To avoid leaving a mark, smear from the periphery of the stain. This method to remove stains is suitable for common sofa fabrics such as polyester acrylic.
Do not scrub with plenty of water as water seeping into the inner layer of the sofa will cause the frame to be damp and deformed. Some type of fabric can shrink after drying, thus affecting the appearance and service life of the sofa.
Removable and washable sofa cover
If the sofa cover is removable and washable, just remove the outer cover, pat gently to shake off the dust, and then wash it according to the manufacturer’s recommended method. Do not expose to the sun when drying to avoid the cloth turning hard or shrinkage. The best way is hang them in an airy place till semi-dry, and then iron with a clothes iron.
Leather sofa fabric
Use a a good commercial leather cleaner and conditioner kit. First wipe away any dust with a soft cotton cloth, then gently wipe the stain with a the leather cleaner until it is clean. Leave it to dry it and apply the conditioner.
Avoid any alkaline cleaning solution as alkalinity will reduce the softness of the leather and cause it to crack. Avoid direct sunlight and keep it ventilated.
