How to Clean Your Couch

Pin It
A long time ago we paid to have our couches cleaned professionally.  It was pretty pricey, and took a VERY long time.  After a while they started to get dirty again, surprise!  Well, one day I came home, I don't even recall where I was, and I was greeted with a wonderful surprise, my husband had taken it upon himself to clean our couches.  He had what I considered a genius idea.  He took Shout, a scrub brush, and hot water and cleaned the couches completely.  It was amazing.  It's been almost a year or since then, and the couches again were looking like they needed some TLC.  I didn't have Shout, but I did have Resolve, since they are both stain removers for laundry, I figured they would have the same end result.  (The toothbrush is so my son could help me clean the cushions, he loves to do what we're doing).
I tried to get good pictures of how dirty the cushions looked...

 So, you take your stain remover and spray all over the cushions, then dip your scrub brush in the hot water, and start scrubbing!
 Here is my son in his pj's demonstrating for us :) 
Scrub until the cushion looks like the one pictured below.  After scrubbing I put the cushions outside in the sunshine to dry, (I only do that so it will be done faster).  Once it's dry you're done!  For the remaining part of the couch, the armrests and back, which you can't obviously take off, do the same thing, just spray and scrub.  It won't dry as quickly because it's not outside, but it still works beautifully!
My son wanted to take a picture of the couch all clean, here it is...
P.S. our couch is suede fabric.

    2. If there's a fresh spill on the couch I'll grab a baby wipe as well to wipe it up. Baby wipes are a life-saver :)

  2. Great idea, we're heading out of town this weekend so I'll be trying this before we leave so the couch can dry while we're gone.

    1. That's an awesome idea! The nice thing is the stain removers don't have really strong toxic smells, they have a nice light 'clean' fragrance, so when you come back you'll be welcomed with the smell of clean :) That's always a nice treat!

  18. We have two kids in our household who are under four. You can imagine the situation of our home, it is like a zoo all the time. But, we love it, except one part- the mess they create sometimes specially on expensive things like sofas or armchair. Recently, we had a similar situation where one of our kids accidentally spilled her milk all over the upholstery of our armchair. My wife tried a lot of DIY methods but nothing really worked. At the end we decided to call professional help and their experts provided us with the best service. This was the Children's fabric chairs Canberra, which has the best technicians. We booked an appointment and they rescued our armchair. Thanks Squeaky Sofa Cleaning.

  19. I am too lazy to work and investing my energy in cleaning the stuff is not me! And, so I usually hire cleaning companies to do the tasks for me. Lately I have been very disappointed with the kind of services my old cleaning company provided.
    I got in touch with Car Seat Steam Cleaning Melbourne on Google and was initially sceptical about their services. But, man they amazed me. I hired them for cleaning my upholstery and they did the job pretty well! They disinfected and sanitized my upholstery like new and also provided me with additional tips of taking care of upholstery.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thanks Spotless Upholstery Cleaning.

  21. Squeaky Upholstery Cleaning are just ultimate saviors! I had a badly soiled upholstery. Basically, we went on a foreign tour for a month, and when we returned, my upholstery, couch – everything was coated with a thick layer of dust.

    I am glad and satisfied with the services I received. Without a doubt, they are the best!
