Remove cushions and gently brush the nooks and crannies of the sofa to get rid of dirt, leftover crumbs and garbage which is stuck in there.

Use only a white towel and not any other color of the material as it may switch the color of your sofa.

Apply this mixture first on a small portion to see if it doesn’t discolor any part of the sofa. This mixture also helps to remove tough stains without much of an effort.
After removing stains and crumbs, you need to remove the bad odor coming from your sofa. Baking soda is one of the best solutions for this. Sprinkle baking soda over the couch and leave it as it is. Vacuum the sofa after 20 minutes of sprinkling baking soda. If this doesn’t work well, mix baking soda with a dry carpet cleaner and apply it on the sofa. Leave it for 20 minutes and your couch will fresh new.
You can also use a lint roller to remove hair or dust from the fabric sofa. This works well for a sofa for a light quantity of de-linting.
Leather + Soap:
If you have a leather sofa, the best would be to use leather-based cleaning soap mixed with conditioner. You can use a slightly damped, clean rag to remove stains from a leather sofa. Leather sofas shouldn’t be cleaned with other regular liquid detergents.
Sofa made out of cloth can be cleaned with water-based cleaner and steam to loosen up stains and dust. Plugin you iron, put it at steam setting and then move it around the sofa, wave it to and fro through tough stains. Once the stains are loosened up, you can repeat steps under ‘Removing Stains’.
Make sure to check the cleaning codes before spot cleaning your sofa. It is always best to try the cleaning solution on a small portion before applying all over the sofa.

Let your spot dry and start repeating the process.
