We emphasize right away: it is strictly forbidden to clean sofas made of leather and leatherette using this method.

In a container with warm water (about 1 liter), add 2 tablespoons of baking soda and 8 tablespoons of white vinegar. Mix thoroughly. Then we take any dishwashing detergent and pour 4 tablespoons. You will also need glycerin – 2-4 tablespoons are enough.

When the solution is ready, use a brush or sponge to rub it into the dirty places on the sofa. The heaviest stains are abundantly lubricated with foam. Leave the product for at least 1 hour, then wash it with a clean sponge and running water.

It is important not to leave the sofa damp. This can lead to rotting of fabrics and the appearance of mold. Dry it with a hair dryer.

The good old way

This method, in the absence of alternatives, was very popular in the USSR. Then laundry soap was used everywhere – from washing to cleaning furniture.

Pour a liter of warm water into the container. We take a grater and rub laundry soap. It is better to add a few tablespoons of detergent. The main thing is that a lot of foam is formed. It is with foam that you need to wipe the greasy places on the sofa. This should be done using a brush.

After that, wash off the foam with a clean sponge dipped in water. And dry again with a hair dryer.

Shaving foam

Shaving foam should not be used on leather and leatherette. And other fabrics will be perfectly cleaned with this tool.

Apply a thick layer of shaving cream to the oily areas. Wipe the sofa with a brush or sponge. Repeat this until the stain disappears. Then you should clean the sofa with a sponge and warm water.
