Clean Upholstery with Baking Soda

Sprinkle a generous amount of regular baking soda onto upholstery and let it sit for at least 20 minutes. The baking soda will help to release odors.

Use this handy hint if there’s a funky smell lurking in your couch or upholstered chair: Sprinkle a generous amount of regular baking soda onto the fabric and let it sit for at least 20 minutes. The baking soda will help to release odors and break up some light stains in the fabric.

After about 20 minutes, remove the baking soda—and the funky smell—with a handheld vacuum or a hose attachment for your large vacuum.
