I wasn't too sure how to clean it, so I did a bit of research and came across this awesome blog post over at Chris & Robin's Nest. She has a beige/tan colored couch though and after reading the reviews, I noticed that a lot of people were not overly happy with the results on their 'red' couches, so I thought I would just go ahead and give it a try and see what happened!
I am amazed! Just look at the pictures below! It looks so much better!!
|BEFORE! See all the dirt in the seams?|
The secret ingredient is rubbing alcohol!!!
You will need:
- An empty spray bottle
- A bottle of regular old rubbing alcohol
- A scrub sponge (preferably white, I used a green one and it was fine but I wouldn't recommend doing this on a white or cream couch without testing it first! You wouldn't want the color to transfer!)
- A soft brush (I used one that I would clean dishes with)
Leave it to dry completely
Once dry, using circular motions, rub the soft brush all over
Let me know how it works out for you!!
*Disclaimer: I cannot be held responsible if this does not work for you! Please, before you do this, test it out in an inconspicuous spot to make sure that it works for your couch!!
