Want to have a safe and healthy lifestyle? If yes, then replace commercial upholstery cleaning products with eco-friendly versions based on non-toxic ingredients. This will help you reduce health diseases and allergies while improving indoor air quality. Here are the top eco-friendly tips for getting stains out of upholstery.
How To Make Green Upholstery Cleaning Solution at Home?
1. Liquid Dish Soap + Water
Make the all-purpose solution by mixing 1 cup of water with ¼ cup of perishable liquid dish soap in the jar. Mix it well by shaking or whipping it with an electric mixer. Here you will see a frothy foam easy to apply to your upholstery.
2. White Vinegar + Water + Shampoo
Mix 1 cup of water, 2 tsp of shampoo, and ¼ cup of white vinegar in the bowl. This is one of the most effective green cleaning solutions for getting stains out of upholstery. Also, this upholstery stain tip works well when you want to remove odors from your upholstered furniture.
3. Club Soda
If you have a stubborn stain on your upholstery, then these ingredients work well on it. Before applying, blot the spot first with a color-stable cloth. Apply the soda. Then rinse with cool water and let it dry. Similarly, if the spill is fresh (and this tip will help spills on area rugs as well) and you’ve blotted as much as you can: pour some water over the spot. Make sure the water is cool, as you don’t want to bloom the fibers and sink the spill in deeper, and vacuum up with a wet vacuum.
The most effective tip to deal with upholstery stains, and we cannot stress this enough, is preemptive care. Yes, acting quickly is important, but if red juice is spilled onto white fabric, there is very little that can be done. Instead, as mentioned, consider preemptive care.
Fabric protection is the best way to protect your upholstery, for various reasons. This protection is aqua-phobic, which means it causes liquids to “bead up” rather than immediately soak in, giving you a precious few seconds to capture the spill. Additionally, fabric protection can help keep the fabric cleaner longer by repelling dirt and dust. For more information on fabric protection
