How does it work?

What is the use of impregnation? Will you no longer get stains? Impregnation means applying a protective layer. This prevents stains and dirt. You are using a special liquid. This prevents dirt from sticking to the fibers of the material used. So the dirt does not enter these fibres. In fact, it stays on top of it. This makes it easier to remove. The comparison with a rain jacket always clarifies a lot. The raindrops remain on the rainwear and do not penetrate.

Problems with fabric sofa

A fabric sofa has many advantages. These sofas are comfortable. They also provide a homely atmosphere. However, a number of problems often arise over time. The cushions are sagging. Pilling occurs. The color is less bright. There are practical solutions to avoid these problems. Or at least postpone it for a while.

  • Shake pillows every week
  • Switch seats
  • Fluff comb helps against pills
  • couch sucking every week
  • Do not place the sofa in direct sunlight
  • Use a good impregnating agent once a year

Remove old stains from fabric sofa

Are you still sticking with your old couch? But first a makeover? You opt for impregnation, but what about the old stains? There are a number of home, garden and kitchen tips in circulation:

  • cleaning vinegar
  • Lukewarm water and soda
  • In case of ink use milk
  • Use undiluted shampoo

Hopefully one of these ways will get rid of the old grime. Personally, I would choose a good quality textile shampoo. Other cleaning agents could remain in the fabric of your sofa. That is not useful when you are impregnating.

Cleaning leather sofa

You want to clean the leather? Usually that is not too difficult. Often necessary. A leather sofa stays beautiful for a long time. However, the quality and appearance deteriorate over time. Consider, for example, the delivery of denim clothing. Or to skin grease from pets. What steps do you follow when cleaning?

1. What type of leather does your sofa have?

There are different types of leather. Keep this in mind when cleaning. Covered leather is easy to maintain. Do you have open leather? This is extra expensive. It is best to impregnate open leather. This considerably extends the life of the leather. The same goes for sanded leather.

2. Remove dirt and dust

Take the vacuum cleaner and remove all dust and dirt. Your vacuum cleaner probably has a special attachment. This way you can also clean between the cushions.

3. Learn to clean

Has all the dust and dirt been removed? Then clean with a suitable maintenance product. Test in a less visible area first. Then you can be sure that the leather reacts well to the product.

4. Protecting the leather

Your sofa will look like new again. Now is the time to care and protect. The color of the leather will remain beautiful in the coming time and the leather will feel supple. You don't have to worry about new stains either. These are much easier to remove thanks to the impregnation layer. Cleaning your sofa will be faster and better from now on.
