Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversation about everything from home renovation to handmade goodness. Today on the the blog, we are chatting cleaning tips.
I am often asked how I keep my furniture looking like new and smelling so fresh when there are three furbabies running around and living inside my house. My tips and tricks are actually pretty basic and easy to do.
You will only need four items to keep your furniture looking new and smelling fresh–vacuum cleaner, lint roller, baby wipes, and Febreze. For best results, clean your sofa and fabric chairs twice per month. I clean mine more during “pollen season” and when it is wet outside.
Check out my quick tip video for more details on how to keep those fabric sofas and chairs looking and smelling like new.
Step-by-Step Cleaning Guide
1. Vacuum the entire piece of furniture. Be sure to remove the cushions and get in all the nooks and crannies.
2. Go over the chair or sofa with the lint roller.
3. Wipe the sofa/chair with baby wipes. Go in one direction and then another. It may take several wipes to get it all clean.
4. Spray the sofa/chair with Febreze being sure to follow the instructions on the bottle.
To protect my sofa/chairs, I toss quilts/blankets on them. I realize that a lot of folks out there are frowning upon the fact that I allow my dogs on my sofas–but they are more than “dogs” to me. They are members of my family, and they enjoy lounging while watching Big Bang *wink*
Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we chatted about tips for keeping those fabric sofas and armchairs looking and smelling like new.
