Cleaning stains on your furniture are hard enough without having your infant add a couple more of them. Having trouble removing those persistent stains? When it comes to making your furniture sparkling clean, there are only a few methods that strike as efficient and valid.

If you want to find out what are best techniques for removing those nasty stains from food on your precious furniture upholstery, scroll down and start writing down. These stain removal recipes are hard to find so be sure to get the measurements right to get the maximum effect.

All the Right Ingredients

baking soda mixed with white vinegarSo first thing’s first, get one fl. Oz. (fluid ounce) of baking soda mixed with white vinegar into three oz. of warm water, salt and fabric softener solution. Mix those two up and start adding washing powder. If your upholstery material is sensitive you should use washing powder of highest quality.

Trust me you don’t want to cut on the expenses and damage the fabric.

Brushing Techniques

Now that you have the ingredients mixed together, get a towel and a brush to rub them in. Depending on the fabric you should use either hard or soft brush. Apply the mixture with a towel on the area of the stain and start rubbing in a circle motion.

Remember that you need to go clockwise and counterclockwise to get the most out of this technique. After the material absorbed your mixture, start using that brush and don’t go easy on that stain until it is completely gone. Try rubbing up and down, sideways and apply force when scrubbing otherwise it won’t have much effect.


Vacuuming baby roomNow comes the easiest part. Get you vacuum cleaner and add the widest extension to the pipe. Make sure that you replace the bag inside the vacuum so that the vacuum has the maximum suction. Wait for it to dry off so that the salt can absorb most of the stain.

Once it’s dry, set your vacuum cleaner on vibration (if you have the model that supports this setting), if not get a wooden plank and start pounding the stained area. It should remove the dried mixture and most of the stain with it. You might want to repeat the process several times until you achieve the desired effect.

Depending on what type of food or liquid ended on your furniture, you can repeat this process from two to four times until you have sparkling clean upholstery again.
