Clean your upholstered furniture in 4 easy steps

3Spring is here and everything feels like new, time to have a look inside your home. Has though winter snuggle ups taken a toll on your furniture?

A spill here, stains there, time to do a spring cleaning of your upholstered furniture.

During winter, your upholstered furniture might accumulate a lot of dirt and dust. Winter cleaning is a good thing, but for most of us, we’d rather want to lie down cosy up in the warmth or the heater or fire, than to get up and clean our upholstered furniture.

Clean your upholstered furniture in 4 easy steps

Ok, lets start by spring cleaning your upholstered furniture naturally. Here’s how you can clean your upholstered furniture and make them fresh again and ready for the long sunny days ahead; whether you are planning to host a party or just have a company with some good friends.

Step 1.Pour baking soda all over your furniture. You’ll be surprised to know that some cleaning solutions can be found right in your kitchen! Leave the baking soda for half an hour up to one hour. This will pull out any odours that have settled in your furniture. Don’t worry! Baking soda will not damage your carpet or your flooring at all, just vacuum it up.

Step 2.Vacuum all the baking soda. Make sure you get all the baking soda. You might need to change the bag in your vacuum cleaner so do that whenever it is full.

Step 3. Whip a ½ cup of detergent with a tablespoon of water. Whip until very frothy until it becomes a big bowl filled with bubbles.

Step 4. Rub a layer of the solution. Rub the solution to your upholstered furniture. You may create more depending on how much furniture you want to clean. Remember to wipe the suds off with a damp cloth, don’t over wet your furniture.

There you go. Good to go till next spring… maybe. Follow these steps, keep your furniture clean for spring, and make your home feel like new!
