Looking for some upholstery cleaning tips this time of the year? Sometimes the holidays just had to kick in for us to be reminded of the level of cleaning tasks we are facing in our own household. Before you fret at all that needs to be spic-and-span before you’d be ready to take in the guests, look at your sofa set. Because the moment you realize how presentable your living room needs to be, the next thing you need to see is the starting point.
Remove the covers from the cushions.
Most homemakers anticipated the living room to be a hub for dirt and grime - in ways that may not always be obvious to you - by having them piece-by-piece encased in slip covers. So by the time clean up season comes in, all you have to do is remove the slip covers carefully enough not to damage the cushion filling. Upholstery cleaning is a bit of work, but maintaining it clean at surface is quite simple.
Soak the slip covers in a big basin of water with laundry detergent powder.
Machine wash can be a good option except that you need to pause every 3 or 5 minutes to scrub the cloth just to get rid of spots. Sometimes kids and adults alike eat by the couch and end up spilling some sauce or soda on the covers. Whatever stains they may be, if you have a little scrub safe enough to use on the upholstered fabric of the slip cover, you get to remove those stains directly by hand.
Hang dry where the sun doesn’t shine directly.
Hanging to dry by the clothesline under the skin is okay. One major downside is how sunlight makes the colors fade. Unless you’d like the slip covers to be white as new, hanging your colored slip covers somewhere dry without getting them sunned would be the best way to maintain their colors.
