How to get rid of stains from upholstery
To remove stains from a sofa or any other upholstery, try to act quick. Whether it’s a chair, sofa or headboard, remove as much excess spillage as possible by blotting with a paper or cotton towel. Next (or if the stain has already set), use Vanish Oxi Action Carpet & Upholstery Vacuum Up Powder. It removes five times more dirt than vacuuming alone, so it’s perfect for large areas. Always test on a hidden area first for colour fastness, and if fine, follow these simple steps:
- Spray the product onto the sofa and leave for 5 mins (max).
- Blot away with a clean, absorbent cloth.
- Repeat as many times as necessary.
- Important: Always check the label on your sofa – if it’s velvet, brocade or unsuitable for wet cleaning, you should refer to a professional cleaner.
