Microfiber is a wonderful material for couches because it cleans easily, resists most dirt and staining and is soft and comfortable. However, it can retain odors such as smoke. Smoke is one of the most unpleasant odors to have in your home, be it from a fireplace or from cigarettes. There are a few steps that you can take in order to remove smoke odors from your microfiber couch that require only a few household products.
Things You'll Need
- Baking soda
- Febreze, Oust or another odor-eliminating spray
Sprinkle baking soda all over the surface of the couch, being sure to cover the cushions, the pillows and the armrests.
Allow the baking soda to sit on the fabric for 15 minutes.
Vacuum up all the baking soda, being sure to go over the surfaces multiple times to remove every trace of the powder.
Spray the surface of the couch, the sides of the couch, the cushions, pillows and armrests with an odor-neutralizing spray such as Febreze or Oust. Allow to dry for three hours, then spray again. You may need to repeat this step several times until the odor is gone.
Tips & Warnings
- If baking soda and odor-neutralizing spray do not do the job, there is a chance that you may need to call a professional couch cleaner who can use specialized chemicals and equipment to remove the odor from your couch.
- Coffee beans or coffee grounds also can eliminate odor. Leaving an open can of coffee grounds or beans next to the couch may aid in the elimination of the smoke odor.
