It’s not easy to find the right sofa for your lovely living room. You spend long hours, maybe even days, to find the comfy one. It’s even more difficult to keep it brand new once you find “the one”. It’s always good to leave it to the professionals to clean your sofas if you want to keep them for a long time. But if you really want to deal with the dirt by yourself we have few nice tips to make your couch life longer.
1) Cleaning Your Microfiber Furniture
You wouldn’t believe how easy it is to clean your microfiber couch. It’s like turning the hands of time. What you need is a white cloth or sponge, baby wipes, alcohol, a spray bottle, and a scrubbing brush. Spray the alcohol until your sofa becomes damp then rub it with the white cloth or sponge. If you don’t use a white one it may transfer its color to your couch, so be careful. After this process your sofa will be dirt free, including pen and marker if you have any. Now you can see which ones are water stains. All you have to do is to use baby wipes to saturate the area where there are water stains. After the saturation process you can use your hairdryer to make it dry quickly. To finish you can rub your sofa with a scrubbing brush to make your sofa fluffy again.

But in some cases like you have to put much more effort to make it go away, like food stains. You can try to remove them with white vinegar and linseed oil. Mix them one part for each and apply it with a cotton cloth. If you have dark stains on your couch don’t be afraid to try the next tip, you will have to give your couch away soon anyway.
