Natural ways to deodorize sofa

Natural ways to deodorize sofa

1. Baking soda: Sprinkle the baking soda all over the sofa and leave it overnight. This will help to absorb any odors. Vacuum it up the next morning.

2. Vinegar: Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and lightly sprays your couch. Let it dry. Vinegar has a strong smell of its own, which will dissipate over time, taking the bad odors with it.

3. Essential Oils: Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils (like lavender or eucalyptus) to a spray bottle with water, and spray it over your sofa. It not only deodorizes but also freshens up your living room.

4. Vodka: It’s not just for cocktails. Vodka can also be used to remove odors. Spray it lightly across your sofa and let it air-dry. It's a great way to kill bacteria without leaving any scent behind.

5. Activated Charcoal: Place a few bags of activated charcoal around the room, and particularly near the sofa. It can absorb the bad smells without any harm to anyone.

6. Lemon Solution: Another simple way to deodorize your sofa is by making a homemade lemon solution. Just mix some fresh lemon juice with water and spray it on the surfaces.

7. Steam Clean: If the odor is too strong, you might need to steam clean your sofa. You can find handheld steam cleaners in the market.

8. Sunlight: If possible, move the couch outdoors on a sunny day or open windows to let sunlight in. Sunlight is a natural disinfectant and deodorizer.

Remember to do a spot test first with these solutions to assure it doesn't damage or discolor the fabric.
