01. Brush the entire sofa with a stiff brush. This helps to loosen up and remove any dirt that might have settled into the nooks and crannies of your sofa. If you do not have a stiff brush, you could also use a piece of white cloth for this step.  Do not use any coloured ones as its colour might transfer onto your sofa – and you definitely do not want another stain to deal with.

02. Sprinkle some fairy dust aka. baking powder. Baking soda can help to eliminate any odours your sofa might have. Let the baking soda sit on your sofa for an hour before using a vacuum to clean it all up. After vacuuming, check to see if there are any stains left on the sofa. If there are any stains left, proceed to the next step.

03. Mix vinegar with baking soda for spot cleaning. If you are working with a dark coloured sofa, do a spot test on the underside of the sofa to check if the mixture will cause any discolouration. Leave the mixture on for around 3-4hours to dry before vacuuming it away. If there are still some stains left, repeat this step
