Do you need a guide on cleaning upholstery? You might have a suede sofa and a few leather chairs that you have no idea how to clean properly. Today, I will show you exactly how I clean my upholstered furniture so you know what to do!
How To Clean Any Kind Of Upholstery Furniture?
– How to clean microfiber/ cloth upholstery?
The first thing you need to do is sprinkle baking soda all over the upholstery and let it sit for a few hours. It will absorb any bad odours, body-liquids, and other impurities. Then, of course, grab a vacuum cleaner and remove the powder.
This is the most effective and easy way to clean your microfiber/ cloth sofa!
– How to clean leather upholstery?
This is easier than you think! Dampen a cloth with water then add a drop or two of a liquid soap. Then wipe the leather with it. Make sure you also have another damp cloth so you can wipe the soapy residue as well.
Then grab olive oil and pour a few drops on another cloth – and start buffing it into the leather. This will help condition it so it’s shiny and does not crack. Make sure you use little oil!
– How to clean suede upholstery?
Suede is very difficult to clean especially if you have stained it which is why you need to be very careful around your suede upholstery. Do not eat or drink anywhere near it!
I also highly recommend you apply a special suede protecting spray which will act as a barrier between impurities and the surface. You need to reapply it every few months.
But when it comes to cleaning suede upholstery, I like to deodorize it with baking soda – just sprinkle baking soda over the surface, let it sit for a few hours, and then vacuum it up.
Then I grab a suede brush and use that to wipe the surface. Next, I grab a suede eraser and wipe any small stains.
