How do you clean a sofa with a non-removable fabric cover?

If your sofa does not have a removable cover, don't despair. You can still clean it! Start by vacuuming the sofa to remove dust and crumbs. Next, focus your attention on the visible stains. Prepare a solution of water and mild detergent, and then gently blot the stains with a clean cloth.

Do you best not to get the fabric too wet. Once the stains have been treated, take a damp cloth, wring it out well and gently wipe the surface of the sofa to remove any detergent residue. For deeper cleaning, consider using a special fabric cleaner, but be careful. Apply it carefully, and follow the manufacturer's instructions. Then, with a clean, damp cloth, rinse well. It might take a little more time and energy, but the result will definitely be worth it, giving you a cosy, vibrant sofa.

Cleaning a sofa without a removable cover may seem like a challenging task, but with the right strategy, you can make it as good as new again. Start by vacuuming the sofa to remove crumbs and dust from the surface. Next, take a clean, damp cloth and gently blot the obvious stains, trying not to rub too hard to avoid damaging the fabric. If your sofa’s cushions are not removable, consider using a fabric-safe cleaner, first testing it on a hidden area of the sofa before applying it to the entire surface. Trying a cleaner on an inconspicuous area is the best way to test whether the fabric will react badly to it. Keeping your sofa clean and fresh takes effort, but it will repay you with its original beauty.
