Regular vacuuming:

The arms, back and sides of the sofa must be vacuum-cleaned on a regular basis. Get your sofa steam-cleaned once in every few months to remove dust mites and allergens.

Remove stains:

Lightly rub any coffee stains with mild detergent dissolved in warm water.

For leather sofas:

If you have a leather sofa, you can remove stains by rubbing them with a cloth soaked in a mixture of warm water and mild soap.

Remove any ‘smokey’ smell:

Sprinkle fresh baking soda over the sofa and keep for several hours before vacuuming.

Suede care:

An eraser is the best tool for keeping suede sofas stain free. Or, use white vinegar on a dampened cloth.
