Treat Stains Which are Destroying Your Upholstery Furniture

Stains doesn’t look good on any furniture, especially on upholstery furniture. However, our upholstery furniture is the most vulnerable place where most of the stains or spills occur. And we all know stains are not a good thing. Stains which happen after food and beverages spill damages the fabric cushion as it seeps deep into the tissue of upholstery fabric and overtime slowly starts to degenerate the upholstery furniture. In this blog, we will try to cover all the safe and effective measures to get you rid of stains. All the precautions and processes regarding stain removal are picked from authenticated sources, just follow all the measures word for word.

Ink Stain Removal

Ink stain is a common type of stain that can occur in the upholstery. And removing the ink stain is quite easy, go to the supermarket and buy a hair spray can. Bring it home, spray it on the sofa fabric and sweep it with a toothbrush. The stain will disappear immediately following this process.

Food Spills

I love munching those french fries while binge watching my favorite shows. Unfortunately, ketchup is unresponsive and a sudden shake can make them fall from the french fry and turn them into a stain. Moreover, there are other types of stain which can also happen on the upholstery, depending upon what you eat while binging. To remove food stains you first need to soak up the spill. Take an example of ketchup, to treat this type of stain.

First wipe of the excess ketchup from the surface. Yes, you need to pause the show and work on it. When you wipe that off, you can apply a solution of vinegar, washing powder and baking soda. Pour this solution in a spray can and directly apply it on the stain. Now, pick your old toothbrush, which is not in use and gently scrub the surface, When you’re done sprinkle some clean water and then blot up the surface with a soft microfibre cloth. 

Stubborn Stain

To clear any stubborn stain, you need to be extra careful. While the bleach can eliminate these stains but they can also affect your upholstery fabric negatively. Thus, we recommend you to not to use any harsh solvent, chemical or products on the upholstery. See the washing tag on the upholstery then only apply any solvent.

Here’s Some Decoding For You

“W”

If your furniture has a “W” on it, be grateful, as the W refers for water and is usually the quickest to clean. It will be okay to clean the stain from your couch with an upholstery/carpet cleaner (better to use the attachments) on the stain or spot with a’W ‘Cleaning code. This is usually the most robust fabric and is suitable for sofa fabric that may see a lot of use or is likely to be dropped on (living room couches and tables, dining room tables, loveseats).

“S”

An S washing label on your couch implies that it should be treated with a dry cleaning agent for upholstery (S is just for solvent i.e. dry clean) This fabric normally does not react well to water and should not be cleaned with water. You can lose colour or have water stains on your cushions if you clean the ‘S ‘cleaning code upholstery with water. A dry cleaning solution meant for home dry cleaning is recommended for upholstery stain removal.

“S/W”

Cleaning code S/W indicates that it is possible to use a combination of water and/or dry cleaning solution. This code is rare and therefore should simply be left for an expert upholstery cleaners to clean S / W code furniture.
