My Pinterest page is brimming with DIY ideas, but unfortunately this time, I'm not referencing it for an adorable craft project or a fabulous outfit...but for cleaning the sofa!
We have such a great sofa, but it has seen better days. MUCH better days. It was preeeety spendy, so I don't want to get rid of it. But, when you take into account the stack of books that are acting as a leg (what? It's artsy.), a dented arm from someone stepping on it to open the blinds (*ahem*husband*ahem*) and the days when Derby decided it would be a blast to chew the cushions apart...like I said, it has seen better days. It's dingy & needs cleaned.
I've since restuffed & sewed up the cushions. Problem now is that I can't take the covers off to clean them unless I want to tear out all of the stitches..and re-sew. No thanks! The sofa is dirty & desperately needs cleaned. Said my mom "why don't you just call someone to come out and clean it?" - she's probably right, but I thought I'd give this cleaning DIY a try :)
This method is for cleaning a mircofiber sofa. I have no idea if ours is microfiber or microsuede or something else (I can never which is which - oops!), but it's worth a shot.
All you need is rubbing alcohol, a spray bottle, a sponge & a brush. I've acquired all 4 items, so wish me luck!
