Posted on

You finally brought home that lovely new couch that you purchased (hopefully from Guaranteed A Fine Furniture). You find the perfect place in your living room to place it. However, just as you take a sip from your coffee to reward yourself, the dog bumps into you. Your coffee tips a little bit, and a splash of coffee falls on your beautiful new couch.

This is a scenario that likely brings anxiety to every person who owns furniture. A spill often times seems like a death sentence for your luxury furniture. However, this is not always the case. Today, Guaranteed A Fine Furniture will be giving you tips for getting rid of stains!

Don’t Panic!

First thing’s first – do not panic. Panicking often leads to furiously scrubbing the stain, only to spread it even further and make it seep deeper into the fabric. While it’s important to act fast, it’s also important to calm yourself down and try not to make things harder on yourself. DO NOT just assume that scrubbing the stain will fix the situation.


Vinegar is a product that is found in almost every household. Almost every kitchen has vinegar, and if by chance you do not – it’s very cheap at the grocery store. While vinegar goes deliciously on fries, there is also another use for it – removing stains.

First of all – only use white vinegar as a stain removing vinegar. Other types of vinegar – such as balsamic vinegar – can make the stain much, much worse. Mix your vinegar with a cup of water and place it in a spray bottle. From there, spray the solution onto the pesky stain and dampen – do not over moisten. Then, with a cloth, simply blot out the stain.

Carbonated Water & Salt

Carbonated water is another common household item that can be helpful in removing stains. Mixed with salt, it can make for a powerful non-toxic stain remover.

Simply blot out the excessive liquid of the stain with a towel. Then, sprinkle some salt on the stain. Pour some carbonated water on the area and let sit for a few hours. After letting it sit, blot out the wet area with a towel. Hopefully, your stain will be gone!

Call A Professional
