How to clean a fabric sofa

fabric sofas are prone to dirt

First of all, let's look for the label on which the sofa washing methods are affixed, so that we know how to act safely and try to perform a test on a small portion of the fabric. Of course we do this test in an inconspicuous place, in case the cleaning products cause shrinkage, discoloration or other damage.

Another option, particularly for microfiber sofas, is alcohol. We try to fill a spray bottle with alcohol and wet the affected area until it is saturated. Using a colorless sponge, we rub the surface vigorously.

This method works to lift most types of dirt off the fabric, but it can also stiffen the material. In this case we need to get a white bristle brush and vigorously rub the entire surface of the sofa: this trick should help us soften the material!

Some covers are machine washable and this information is indicated on a sofa label. If so, simply remove them, use a mild detergent and start the machine with cold water.

Finally, there is professional cleaning. Many professional cleaning services are available for sofas and other covered pieces of furniture and although this can be expensive, to make sure the fabric is cleaned properly, especially for important sofas, it is better to spend a few extra euros!
