How To Keep Fabric Clean
Fabric cleaning is easy to do. When you get stains in your fabric, it is important to know how to properly clean your fabrics. When you’re noticing that you have stains and spots or if your fabric is just looking dirty. There are some tips to help clean your fabrics. It is a good idea to vacuum it before you can start to clean any stains. Vacuuming beforehand picks up any dirt or dust that may have accumulated. If you have pets, make sure to pick off as much of the hair as possible because the vacuum may not pick up all of it.
How To Choose A Fabric Cleaner
This is the fabric cleaning process for fresh stains. With any fresh spill, the first thing you’re going to want to do is blot the spill to prevent it from spreading. It is important to pick it up before the stain has a chance to soak into the fabric. It is key to blot and soak up the stain to prevent the stained spot from getting bigger. Before you go about cleaning your fabric, it is important to know what fabric the upholstery is made of and the type stain you are dealing with. The type of upholstery, whether it has coloring in it and how old the material itself matter because the combination of the two determines the method of how it’s cleaned. If the upholstery is really old, I recommend contacting your local professional cleaner for assistance to ensure that the cleaning is done 100% correctly. If you’re having trouble figuring out which fabric cleaner can be used, take a look at the tag on your upholstery and follow the directions on it. If you don’t have the tags anymore, this is another case where you may want to consult a professional about which type of cleaning solutions can be used on your fabric upholstery.
At Home Fabric Cleaner Remedies
There are a couple home remedies you can do to for fabric cleaning. These include:
- Homemade Upholstery Shampoo
- Berry Stain Remover
- Upholstery Paste
The first one I am going to be talking about is the homemade upholstery shampoo. This solution contains 2 cups of warm water, and 1 squirt of your own liquid dishwasher detergent. To start you need to mix these ingredients together until it creates a foam and you must use this foam right away. This solution works best on almost all food and drink stains on your upholstery fabric, as well as for built up grime and dirt.
There is also a homemade berry stain remover with a formula of 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and cup of rubbing alcohol. Mix these ingredients together and blot the stain with a clean white washcloth. Blot the stain until it is all gone, and then get a clean washcloth, cold plain water and a sponge. Use the sponge to clean up the cleaning solution and then blot it dry.
The last remedy I’m going to be talking about is the upholstery fabric cleaning paste. This method contains a formula of ½ cup cornstarch, ½ cup baking soda and water. Mix these together until it becomes a thick but smooth paste. Then apply the paste to the stained spot and let it dry. It should take about half an hour to dry and once it dries, brush off the paste and vacuum up the bits and pieces.
