How To Clean Fabric Couch

Refresh Your Fabric Couch

After a long day, your cozy couch is the perfect place to unwind, which sometimes involves stinky feet, a fatty late-night snack, or a glass of red wine. Those scents build up over time, wipes, and clogs and your couch is begging for a deep cleaning before you realize it. This method will even get rid of things you can not see, such as sloughed-off skin cells (ew!) . If you have a natural-fabric couch (such as cotton, linen, or wool) here’s how to make it look like new again.

Identify the type of dirt and dust when vacuuming as follows:


Invisible particles

This is the sort of dirt that people are unable to be viewed with our bare eyes. These dust and dirt can harm a person’s health. It may lead to respiratory issues, when any these particles.


Visible Particles

This dirt is visible to our naked eyes like sand, fur and hair, etc..


Large Particles

This is the biggest type of dirt that can be obviously been seen by people like candy wrappers, hair tie, stapler bullets, coins, leaves torn paper, paper hole punch and paper clips.

Identify the Fabric




Couches come in lots of shapes and fabrics, with some even with removable and washable cushions. If you are fortunate enough to have a couch that is linen or cotton-blend, you can wash it using natural ingredients. 

Give your couch a good once-over to determine what it is made from before getting started. Most have a label that identifies it as:

W: OK to use water for cleaning.
S: Just use a solvent-based cleaner on fabric.

  • SW: Either water or a solvent cleaner is safe to use.
  • X: Just use a vacuum cleaner for cleaning.

Prep Your Couch

Get your couch prepared for grooming by using a clean and sterile white hand towel or washcloth to brush the entire piece of furniture, breaking up any dried-on spots and removing any bits that have made houses of nooks and crannies. You can use a stiff brush for this step. Avoid using any colored towels or sponges, as the dye can alter the color of your couch.


Sprinkle the entire couch with a good heap of baking soda. Baking soda helps discharge lurking smells and break up stains in the fabric. If you’re feeling your couch really needs a serious mix together this carpet cleaner that is dry, clean, and use for covering the fabric.

Allow the baking soda to sit up and on the couch for at least 20 minutes to an hour before vacuuming using a brush attachment.

Stains, Begone

Now take a close look at the couch to find any lingering stains. Mix this cleaning solution that is easy together, and do a fabric spot test in an unseen location to check if there’s any discoloration. Dip the washcloth in the cleaning solution, and gently dab and rub stains — or use for wiping down the entire couch. You’ll be amazed with the results!

Just Like New

Allow the couch to wash, and touch up as needed. Until it is completely dry it may seem darker in color. This cleaning method is safe to use on fabrics and can be done anytime before you have friends, a cleaning is needed by your couch — like right over!
