Cleaning Your Upholstery

I'm pretty good about keeping the daily chores up to date when it comes to cleaning my home. It's the things that I only do ever so often that get me down. How about you? Stuff like cleaning the refrigerator. Or cleaning my leather sofa. Or the other fabric sofas and chairs I also have. I like to take care of things myself to cut costs, but that can get hectic.

So here are some tips that might help you when it comes to cleaning your upholstery, cleaning rugs, cleaning lamp shades and cleaning mattresses. I know, it's not any fun, but you know it has to be done some time, so why not now?

Cleaning Upholstery

  • Look for a "W". If you find one, you can clean it yourself. Otherwise consult a professional.
  • Get some Woolite (or a neutral-pH dish soap). Use 2 cap fulls to a bucket of water.
  • Dip sponge, wring out well, rub thin layer on each cushion.
  • Start with dirtiest side first.
  • Lean cushions against wall to dry. Cushion with white paper towels in case of color loss.
  • Clean body of sofa or chair.
  • Use as little liquid as possible.
  • Let air dry completely to avoid mildue.

Professional carpet cleaning companies usually have attachments to their equipment and can provide upholstery cleaning services at the time you have your carpets cleaned. Ask for a discount for doing both at the same time.
