I’d like to welcome a guest post today, from the editors at Hello Sofas. They are here to share tips on how to remove stains from sofas.

Though today, thanks to the revolution that is the
internet, you can find fairly cheap, yet high quality sofas from online
companies such as
looking after your household furniture is still a must!

With that in mind, there are dotted around the house,
devilish forms of liquid that simply can’t wait to stain your brand new sofa.
Here are three of the worst.


Though blackcurrant juice is the favoured drink of
nearly all children, it has to be said that it is simply a pain in the cushions
to remove from upholstery.

So how do you get the red stuff out?
Quite simply, dab at the stain with cold water and a
clean cloth.
Once that you have got the main focus of the stain out
of the upholstery, blot dry the remaining moisture with a cloth or kitchen

If the stain is particularly large or persistent (as
you often get with children and Ribena), you can dab at it with a hydrogen
peroxide solution; testing on a small part of the sofa however, is advised.

with Tomato in it
If you thought that blackcurrants were the official
work of the devil, then you are mistaken, as the real villain of sofas is in
fact the tomato.
Whether found sliding off of a pizza, falling from a
bottle or whipped across the cushions by an erratic strand of spaghetti;
tomato, in any shape or form, is one of the hardest to remove.
To start, create a mix of two table spoons of white
vinegar and a table spoon of dishwashing liquid. Lightly dab the stain,
remaining careful throughout so that you do not deepen the liquid into the
Once that the sofa is fairly wet, let the mixture soak
for at least half an hour before dabbing away at any further discolouration; if
you find that the stain is merely lighter, do not be disheartened!
Simply try the process over again and if this fails,
apply a commercial stain remover.

Though now one of the most popular dishes in the UK,
curry can wreak a particular havoc on both clothes and upholstery when it
happens to come into contact with them.
Other than buying yourself a curry coloured sofa,
there’s very little that can be done to get rid of curry stains, aside that is
from the following (which, depending on the stain, aren’t guaranteed to work).
Solution 1:
As soon as the curry spills, apply liquid detergent
immediately and dab away at the stain. If you find that this still does not
work, as before, apply a solution of hydrogen peroxide to an inconspicuous area
of the stain.
Solution 2:
Seek professional help.

I started a blog. This is a tale of my projects, goals, and dreams. Thank you for taking a moment to stop by. I hope you have a beautiful day.
