Enjoying your coffee while sitting on the couch is quite relaxing. But when the coffee spills accidentally, it becomes annoying.
It is necessary to clean the coffee spills and stains immediately; because if left unclean, they might damage your couch fabric and cost a replacement.
To save your expenses and maintain your couch for a long time, read this blog which states some methods to get rid of the coffee stains on the couch.
Before performing the cleaning methods, you must check your upholstery cleaning codes to ensure safer cleaning and prevent your couch from any possible damage.
Immediately Remove The Fresh Spills from The Couch
Soak up the fresh spills as soon as you notice them on your couch. If they are left uncleaned and set on the couch, then the spills turn into dried stains. It would damage the fibers of your couch if you let the spills get into it.
Blot the spill with a clean microfiber cloth. Avoid scrubbing, as it might cause damage to your couch. Rinse the spot with little water and wipe it off. Let the couch air-dry. Repeat the entire process until the stain goes away.
You can also prepare a solution of dishwashing liquid and water. Dip a sponge or paper towel in the solution, and dab it on the coffee spill. Apply more detergent solution to remove the coffee spills thoroughly. Take a wet clean towel and wipe the soapy water to leave no residues behind.
What to do When Spills become Stains?
The spills, when left contaminated, turn into dried or stubborn stains that are hard to remove.
If there are black coffee stains, dip a sponge in the mild liquid detergent and rub it across the stains in a circular motion (outside to inside).
To get rid of the dried coffee stains, prepare a solution of lemon juice, warm water, and liquid dish soap. Or you can also mix white vinegar and warm water. Vinegar helps to loosen stains from the couch fibers.
Apply the solution to the stain and clean it with a microfiber cloth or sponge. Later, rinse the stain with cold water. To avoid the water let in the couch, use a clean cloth to remove excessive moisture.
You can also put some salt on the stain and leave it for a few hours, as they pull it out from the fibers, then brush the salt from the fabric. If the stain still exists even after cleaning it, keep repeating the process until you see a stain-free couch.
Sprinkle baking soda on the stain, let it stay, and get into the fibers. Swab the baking soda with the help of a clean cloth. Repeat until the stain is removed. If baking soda works inappropriately, you can also use a mixture of oxygen bleach stain remover and warm water to remove the stains.
