How can I clean my couch?

It is just fabric and really old. I would like to "freshen" it up a little, give it a nice newer smell, etc.

  • Use the hand attachment on a carpet cleaner. Some of our houses are furnished so we use this attachment on the couches all the time.
    Works good. Spot clean first.

  • First vacuum it good...
    use a mild fabric soap with a soft sponge and gently wash the areas...
    then use Ordor Bon solution... you can find it at Lowes...
    It will kill germs, up to 99%, as the liquid drys you will notice
    a fresher smell... and it will not harm the fabric....
