Stain remover for Upholstery Fabric

People often find it difficult to keep the upholstery in good shape. Several sources can spoil your favorite upholstery leaving sticky stains on it. The article discusses how to deal with upholstery stains.
Upholsteries are important part of interior. They add value to the design of your home. Therefore, you should always try to keep the upholsteries clean and stainless.

Stained and dirty upholsteries not only look bad but degrade your status. How would you feel when someone offers you a seat which is dirty and stained? Won’t you try to leave the place as early as possible? The same thing happens to your guests. Believe it or not, upholsteries represent your status.

However, some factors often damage your upholstery damaging your interior and social status both. In this article we would discuss five factors that stain your upholstery and then we would see how to clean it.

Black Molds

Molds are fungi. They grow on moist surfaces and live on dead organic products. Molds are microscopic basically, but when they grow and develop to form colonies, they appear as small black spots on the surface.

Mold stains are tough. You need to use mold stain remover to remove the stain. Natural mold stain removers are good at cleaning yet not harsh on the stained substrate. And green products are safe for health as well.

Coffee Stains

Coffee stains are very common. Coffee stains are sticky and difficult to remove. Unfortunately it is quite difficult to avoid. Coffee might spill on the upholstery any moment, you never know when the accident will occur and your favorite fabric will get damaged.

Once it happens, drop few drops of water on the spot to dilute it. Then dab detergent and vinegar on the stain. Don’t rub as the stain might spread and become too sticky to get it off.

If you find the blot really tough, apply some dry cleaning agent to eliminate it completely.


Rust is the toughest of all sorts of upholstery stains. Your favorite upholstery fabric gets stained when it comes into contact with a rusty metal. Rust cleaners can help you clean the fabric.

It won’t be irrelevant to discuss few words about rust here. Rust is a series of iron oxides and water – porous and reddish brown in color. When iron comes in contact with moisture and oxygen, it gets oxidized and forms rust.

If you touch a rusty tool, the particles slip in to your hand and stain it. Same thing happens with upholstery. If the sofa set, couch or the chair is rusting, chances are the upholstery fabric would get stained soon.

As mentioned before, rust stain is very much sticky and tough. Cleaning with normal detergent won’t be of much help. You need rust stain remover to turn the upholstery in good condition again.

Green cleaning products are good at cleaning rust stain. Natural cleaning products are free from side effects and do not do any harm to the upholstery.

Pet urine

The next disturbing factor is pet urine. Like most Americans, you must have pets at your home and I am sure you love them. But you never know what they can do to your favorite upholstery; they are animals after all.

There are pet urine cleaners available in the market. These solutions not only clean the stain, but eliminate the bad odor as well.

Use organic rust cleaner and rust stain remover to clean upholstery, carpet, curtains and similar stuffs.
