Use these steps to properly clean the upholstery on your recliner using a carpet shampooer with a brush attachment:

Step 1. Fill up a tank of cleaner and mix it in water. Make sure you use room temperature water if possible or cold for harsher stains.

Step 2. This step is optional, but some people like to spray vinegar onto the fabric before they start washing as well which can help break down any dirt that has been stuck around too long.

Spray furniture cleaner over the entire area including sides and backs as needed until covered then let sit for about two minutes before scrubbing (letting soak) into the surface. For tougher areas, repeat this process until gone.

Step 3. Next, attach an appropriate nozzle head to the hose then attach the hose to your carpet shampooer.

Step 4. Turn on the carper cleaner (make sure it’s plugged in) and scrub the area with brush attachment until clean. Be careful not to push too hard or you might leave marks from bristles of nozzles–remember, this is how you want to get the dirt out without leaving a mark behind!

Step 5. Lastly, turn off carper cleaners (again make sure it’s unplugged), but don’t disconnect hoses yet as they will be full of dirty water which means you’ll need to pour that down sink drain before putting them away for storage.

Step 6. Carefully wash nozzle attachments by hand with soapy warm water then rinse in cold running water again; do not allow them to sit in water.

Step 7. Place nozzle attachments on a drying rack and dab them with a dry towel until the metal is completely dried (about 90 minutes).

Note: do not use any type of soap or detergent when washing your nozzles–just warm soapy water will be enough!


Can baking soda clean upholstery?

Yes! Baking soda is a great product to use when you have something stuck or spilled on the upholstery that will not wash off with soap and water.

The best way to clean it off is by spraying the baking soda directly onto the stain, scrubbing it in gently for about 30 seconds using your fingers or an old toothbrush, then lifting away any excess powdery residue with a dry cloth (like a paper towel).

If there are still remnants of the spill left behind after this process – repeat until all visible signs of dirt from baked-on spills are gone.

Baking Soda Trick: if you’re going to be working on more than one stain at once–apply baking soda liberally before tackling them so that the powdery foam acts as a barrier, preventing stains from seeping through to other areas.

What should I do about pet hair on my furniture?

One of the most common issues people have with their upholstery is how to clean pet hair from furniture. Depending on what type of fabric your sofa or chair is made out of, you may need a variety of items to get rid of all that fur.

It’s best to use a vacuum cleaner first if there are any small particles left behind – this might seem like the obvious choice but it could be worth mentioning since some people don’t think about using one before they try something else!

You can also use dry shampoo for pets which should come off easily after brushing at it with an old toothbrush and/or spritzing it with water as instructed on the bottle then wiping away any traces afterward when finished.

Other options include utilizing a sticky substance like cornstarch or flour that will form a film on the surface of your furniture, which can then be brushed away and easily cleaned off.


How do you remove old water stains from fabric?

If you have old stains that are water-based, the best way to remove them is by wiping or rubbing with a cloth dipped in diluted household ammonia. You should always make sure to test for colorfastness first before applying any products like this!

Another option would be using vinegar mixed with white distilled vinegar if there’s no risk of staining and then follow up with soap and warm water afterward.

For tougher residues, try soaking up as much liquid as possible from the area while it’s still wet then scrubbing it off once dry at which point you can use an industrial cleaner like acetone or methyl mercaptan (available online) to help dissolve anything left behind but do not use these chemicals on silk fabrics because they could cause them to melt.
