3 Home Remedies for Common Sofa Stains, Brooklyn, New York

Every homeowner has experienced the moment of panic upon discovering a stain. A dinner guest spills a glass of wine, or your child colors on the couch, causing a bold spot on the sofa fabric. While it might seem like a crisis, there are ways to quickly remove the stain. The following home remedies can keep your living room furniture stain-free despite typical accidents. 

3 Ways to Get Rid of Couch Stains

Soda Water

Carbonated water is a classic stain removal remedy, as it’s usually easy to obtain. Soak the stain thoroughly with the soda water and blot with a dry cloth. Be sure not to rub, as this can spread the stain even more. Even though the liquid is clear, this remedy is generally effective at lifting dark substances like wine from your sofa cushions. 

Baking Soda

Mix two parts baking soda to one part water in a bowl, stirring the mixture until it makes a thick paste. Blot the spot with a wet cloth to loosen the stain, and then spread the paste onto the entire spot. Leave the paste on the stain for a few hours or until it dries. Rub a small section off to see if the stain is gone. For more deep-set stains, you may need to leave the solution on overnight. 


You may already be in the habit of tossing a splash of vinegar in with your laundry, and this can also work for living room furniture stains. Mix equal parts vinegar and water in a spray bottle to keep on hand. You may also add rubbing alcohol to the solution. When a spill occurs, use a dry cloth or paper towel to remove any moisture. Spray the spot with the vinegar solution and start blotting again. Continue spraying and blotting until the stain starts to go away.
