  • oxy clean mixed with water. just soak your sponge and scrub and dab dry. most stains come out.

  • baking soda sprinkled on the couch, spritz with vinegar. let it dry, vacuum it all away. if stains persist, do it again, only scrub gently with a brush before letting it dry. This mixture will also take the smells out after the vinegar smell fades ( usually a few hours, so just do this right before bed.)

  • Now looking at my response I should clarify. do not DUMP vinegar on the couch, pour it in a spray bottle and mist the baking soda with it. just enough to where it starts to fizz up. Also, you don't have to wait a few hours before vacuuming, it should be dry in less than an hour, just the vinegar smell takes a little bit to go away. it is cheaper than using any commercial cleaner and safer for the fabric as well.
