How to Get Rid of Stubborn Stains on Your Sofa

We have posted a lot of articles about how to clean different types of upholstery and how to keep your sofa and armchairs clean.

In general, vacuuming your furniture regularly and deep-cleaning them once every 6 months should be enough to keep them as new for years. However, soft furnishings are often involved in small domestic accidents – food and beverage spills, stains from cosmetic products, pet urine – you name it.

Chocolate. Most of the chocolate bars are advertised as “crunchy”, which is the marketing term for ‘chocolate crumbs on your sofa’.

Scrape of as much of the chocolate as you can using dull knife. Prepare a solution from 1 cup lukewarm water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid. Dip a clean cloth into the solution and start tapping gently onto the stain. Do not rub, as you can push the chocolate deeper into the upholstery. After a few minutes of dabbing the stain should be gone. Rinse the area by blotting it with a clean cloth, dipped in cold water. Let you upholstery air-dry before sitting on the sofa.
