Spilling something on your couch can be extremely frustrating, but removing spots and stains doesn’t have to involved expensive upholstery cleaning services. Check out some tips for spot-cleaning your upholstery on the cheap:
- To get rid of red wine stains, blot up what you can with a paper towel, then mix a tsp of dish soap with a cup of hydrogen peroxide. Blot this mixture onto the stain while you hold a dry towel behind the fabric to soak it up. You can also try this method on carpet, clothing and other fabrics.
- To get rid of coffee stains, mix an egg yolk with luke-warm water and rub on the problem spot.
- For any stain, fill a container with half dish soap and half water. Use a hand mixer to whip these together, then use a rag to rub the froth into the spot. Rinse with water once you’re done.
