How To Remove Those Pesky Coffee Stains From Upholstery Sofa

The living-room sofa is the most loved piece of furniture from your house, because we spend here most of the time, relaxing in front of the TV or socializing with our family members for a coffee.

Therefore, the most “popular” and “dangerous” stain for the sofa is the coffee stain. And no matter how delicious is the coffee the harder is to remove it from a textile sofa.

You have to know and understand that stains have their “dignity”, and depending on the material it’s easier to remove them or not. The velvet upholstery is harder to clean than the wool one. Stains will hardly come out of cotton upholstery. If the upholstery has more polyester it will be easily to clean.

Clean the coffee stain with vinegar or baking soda

If the upholstery is made of cotton or has more than 50% cotton in its composition, use vinegar to remove the coffee stain. Pour white vinegar on the stain, wait for about 10 minutes to act, and then absorb the vinegar with a paper towel, and wash the stain with water and dish detergent. Repeat washing 2 or 3 times, absorb the liquid and leave to dry.

If the cotton is fluffy, mix baking soda with water to form a paste, enough to cover the stain. After 3-5 minutes, gently rub the stain, and wash with water several times. Remove the excess liquid with a paper towel, and let it dry.

After cleaning and drying, vacuum the upholstery using the vacuum cleaner at low-power with the upholstery brush. Now you can use the soda again!
