Whether you’re rearranging or moving out, heavy furniture can leave behind quite the unattractive footprint on your carpet — and the longer the furniture has been there, the harder it is to persuade those carpet fibers to spring back into shape. So instead of laying on the floor with various carpet cleaning tools for hours on end, try this super simple method instead.
While you may already use food products to remove stains or wash the dishes, here are some other pantry staples to clean all kinds of messes…
Beyond Lemons and Vinegar: How to Clean With Ketchup, Vodka, Butter and More
For the purposes of this exercise, we’ve omitted food and drink items that are very commonly known for their cleaning prowess, like club soda, baking soda, citrus fruits, salt and, yes, white vinegar, in favor of focusing on more esoteric — at least in the realm of cleaning — foodstuffs. Like ketchup…

Cleaning Your Microfiber Couch
How do you clean a microfiber couch? To clean microfiber, load up a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol, or pop a spray top right onto the bottle, and spray the soiled areas of your sofa. Use a clean cloth to blot and gently rub at the stains to lift them out of the fabric.
How Do I Clean a Fabric Sofa?
Deep-Clean. Sprinkle the entire couch with a good heap of baking soda. Baking soda helps release lurking smells and break up stains in the fabric. If you’re feeling your sofa really needs a serious clean, mix together this dry natural carpet cleaner, and then use for covering the fabric.
How To Spot Clean Old or Set-In Upholstery Stains
Rinse the sponge and use just water to blot out some of the soap mixture. Press dry with a cloth or paper towels. If your furniture cannot be cleaned with water, use vinegar or vodka on a cloth to blot the stains. The smell of both vinegar and vodka will disappear when the area is dry.
Can You Use Vinegar to Clean Upholstery?
Combine 1/2 cup white vinegar and 1 cup warm water in a spray bottle, for use on plastic, nylon and synthetic leather upholstery. If the furniture is badly soiled, add 1/2 tablespoon of natural liquid soap…
How Do You Clean Wood Furniture?
Wipe the toothpaste off with a clean damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Once your furniture is clean, wipe a layer of wood polish on it to preserve the finish and add shine. You can use commercially prepared lemon oil. You can also make a simple polish by mixing 1 cup of olive oil with 1/4 cup white vinegar.
Pillows should be washed every three to six months to remove bacteria, mold, and odors.
These helpful steps will demonstrate the right way to do it.
Step 1: Remove case – Remove the pillowcase and pillow protector.
Step 2: Read label – Read the care label for instructions. Pillows filled with buckwheat or gel cannot be washed.
Step 3: Put in washer – Put the pillow in a washing machine set to the gentle cycle. Use hot water and a mild detergent.
Tip – Hot water will remove dust mites.
Step 4: Rinse – Run the pillow through the washer’s rinse cycle several times to be sure to wash away any residual detergent.
Step 5: Remove excess water – Remove excess water from the pillow by pressing it with a towel.
Step 6: Dry -Place the pillow in a dryer set on air dry. Prevent matting by putting a clean tennis ball in the dryer.
Did you know? Down is considered the best pillow because of its longevity, adjustability, and natural resilience.

Choose upholstery fabrics that are durable, stain resistant and easy to clean. Leather upholstery is a favorite for people with children because it is easy to wipe off. I would stay away from white or ivory leather if you’re choosing it for ease of cleaning…
Don’t forget fabric. Choose contract-grade fabrics that have been treated to be stain repellant. I’m having some custom-designed dining chairs made and have selected a luscious Kravet textured velvet that is treated with a stain repellent…

“My decorator recommended FiberCare and The Cleaning Company to me several years ago, so my expectations for their quality of work was high from the outset. What I did not know initially was that their customer service and follow through are equally as pleasing. Last week they shampooed wall-to-wall carpets in 5 rooms, a staircase and hallway with amazing results. The workers were professional, polite and very capable. When it comes to care and cleaning of fine furniture and carpeting, FiberCare and The Cleaning Company is a winner!”. – Debbie Stack, Dallas, TX

Very Dirty Carpet Cleaner Solution Review
This carpet cleaner was great. No discoloration, no sticky feeling on your feet after its been cleaned, no sticky feeling when pouring it. No awful, toxic chemical smell, just a nice fresh scent and powerful cleaning abilities. I tried it, as directions said, with 1 oz per 1 gallon of water and used my upright steam cleaning carpet shampooer. You could see the difference after one go over, and more so when I was finished. My carpet is cleaner than it has been in a long time. I really like this cleaner. It got my Very Dirty Carpets clean again!
