A white sofa can add elegance and style to any room, but dirty or grimy white sofa can destroy your ambiance just as fast. Cleaning a white sofa can be difficult, but it is an essential art to master if you want to incorporate any type of white, upholstered furniture into your decor. Here are several ways that you can try to cleaning your white sofa. Vacuum the white sofa thoroughly before starting any cleaning process, especially along the seams and between the cushions. This prohibits dirt already on the couch from spreading during cleaning. Use a lint roller to remove any surface crumbs, pet hair and blanket fuzz. Make a paste by mixing baking soda with club soda. Lay the paste on the stain with a clean rag. Allow the paste to dry, and vacuum it off of the white sofa. The stain can also be gently scrubbed with a soft toothbrush. Don’t be too rough when scrubbing, or you may ruin the fabric.
Apply a solution of half hydrogen peroxide and half water to the stain with a spray bottle and a clean cloth. Don’t rub or you may spread the stain. Blot the stain after letting the solution sit on the stain for a few minutes. Repeat the process if the entire stain is not removed the first time. Buy an upholstery cleaning product. Read the label carefully to determine whether it’s safe for white sofa. Test the product in a hidden area even if it says it should be safe for your furniture.
