The Best Ways To Clean Up Spills And Stains

Living & Lifestyle

The holiday season is upon us, which means endless fun and endless gatherings.

But add a bunch of happy (and tipsy) people into the equation, and you might just have to bear the brunt of a cleaning nightmare. There is a chance that your happily inebriated guests might not ruin your new fabric couch or gorgeous sheepskin rug. But they do. They always do. A vigorous swish of the wine glass, or an accidental topple of a plate of pasta is enough to make your heart start racing. Now stop panicking, take a breather, and check out our step-by-step instructions on how to remove the four main types of spills off fabric sofas and soft furnishings – pronto.

 

1. Water-based Spills

  • Time is of the essence, so grab a paper towel and blot the spill as much as you can until it dries.
  • Don’t scrub! This will only worsen the damage.
  • Wet the area with water, but be sure not to over-wet it as this may cause the spill to spread.
  • Again, blot it with a paper towel and remember to change its side repeatedly. Continue doing so until you can’t see the stain on the paper towel anymore.

 

2. Oil-based Spills

  • Pour baby powder or talcum over the affected area and let it sit and absorb the oil for 20 minutes.
  • Vacuum the powder off.
  • Apply upholstery-cleaning solvent (or dish soap if it’s for soft furnishings) onto a clean cloth and dab it onto the spill.
  • With a paper towel, blot the area until it becomes dry.

 

3. Wax Spills

  • Wait for the wax to harden.
  • Now the fun part – Scrape off the hardened bits with a spatula or your fingers.
  • Place a paper towel over the stain, and iron it on medium heat with the steamer off.
  • The wax will transfer easily from the affected area to the paper towel.
  • Continue doing this with a clean sheet of towel until the stain is gone.

 

4. Ink Spills

  • Pour a small amount of rubbing alcohol onto a clean cloth, and dab the stain with it gently.
  • Be sure to use a new cloth once most of the ink has been transferred on it. 
  • Keep doing this until you no longer see ink on the cloth.
  • To remove the alcohol, wet a fresh cloth with water and pat it on the affected area.
