WHY DO YOU NEED TO CLEAN YOUR SOFA AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR?
1) Check for the cleaning tag/recommendation on your sofa. If its washable and detachable, remove the fabric and throw it into the washing machine with laundry detergent.
2) Vacuum and clean non-detachable parts of your sofa like the armrest, back rest etc. Be sure to vacuum between the cushions and under pillows to pick up food particles. Use baking soda to on areas with odour and leave on for at least 1 hour before vacuuming up the baking soda.
3) As long as the cleaning tag does not states dry clean only you can do a wiping down of the sofa fabric with a soft clean sponge.
