Spot clean stains immediately. The sooner you spot a stain, the easier it will be to remove. Blot the stain with a clean cloth to remove as much of the liquid as possible.
Identify the type of stain. Different stains require different cleaning methods. For example, blood stains can be removed with cold water and hydrogen peroxide, while ink stains can be removed with rubbing alcohol.
Use a stain remover. There are many commercial stain removers available, or you can make your own by mixing one part white vinegar with two parts water. Apply the stain remover to the stain and let it sit for a few minutes before blotting it up.
Wash the cushion cover or bedsheet. Once you have removed the stain, wash the cushion cover or bedsheet as usual.
Here are some additional tips for removing stains from cushion covers and bedsheets:
- Test the stain remover in an inconspicuous area first to make sure it does not damage the fabric.
- Do not use bleach on colored fabrics.
- Air dry cushion covers and bedsheets whenever possible to prevent damage from heat.
