A steam cleaner can save you time and effort, but only if you have one available. If your couch isn’t steam-cleanable, it doesn’t mean that you need to throw it out or resign yourself to years of ugly stains and odors; there are other cleaning options available that can help you keep your couch looking good even without the use of steam or chemicals. Here’s how to clean a couch without using a steam cleaner.
Just Give It a Wash
You should wash your couch cushions in a washing machine (as opposed to hand washing). Once they have been washed, you must make sure they are thoroughly dried because trapped moisture can cause mildew. Adding fabric softener would also be beneficial.
However, when it comes to cleaning upholstery or car seats, washing machines aren’t always convenient. In these cases, you might want to consider sofa steam cleaning. There are a lot of companies that offer sofa cleaning services today, and they can use either hot or cold water.
You Don’t Have to Wash it All
If you spot just a speckle or blotch, you can use a clean cleaning product to wipe it up. For stubborn stains, use an enzymatic cleaner. This will free up resources, work, and time on your behalf.
Scrub it Out
To clean your entire couch thoroughly, you will need a scrubber brush and water. Pour upholstery cleaner over the surface of the couch and scrub with the brush, then rinse.
Use an Extracting Device
Wet the couch and spray it thoroughly with water, adding detergent or soap to the water as you spray. Put the fabric in water and let it soak for a while.
In any case, it has been previously mentioned that there are a variety of ways in which you can clean your couch, though I advise contacting a professional if it sounds like more work than it’s worth to you.

To clean small couch cushions, use a washing machine. Make sure to dry them thoroughly to prevent mildew from forming. Wash the covers if possible.
Couch extractors can also be used to clean your sofa. First, wet the furniture, then spray it thoroughly with your cleaner of choice. Pull the moisture out of the fabric using an attachment with an extracting machine. Repeat this process until the fabric is dry and spotless.
If you do not have access to a steam cleaner or if you want to clean more than one piece of furniture in one go, you could use a vacuum and bucket combination. A bucket will help suck up all the excess liquid that spills off your vacuum brush head as you work on each surface.
So even if you don’t have the time or money for a professional sofa steam cleaning, there are still some tricks you can try at home. The simplest is using boiling water and dish soap to make your own homemade solution. Just boil some water on the stove and mix in dish soap until it becomes sudsy. Then spray or pour the mixture over your sofa’s fabric and let it sit for about 10 minutes before wiping off with a dry cloth or paper towel. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
