Get That STANK Out!

My couch has a corner that reeks.  We have Febrezed the heck out of it to no avail. The odor stings the nostrils whenever you sit on the couch.  Something had to be done.  So I googled “getting sweat smells out of couches”.  The consensus was to use vinegar and baking soda.  So that’s what I did.

I made a mixture of half vinegar and half water.

I soaked the couch corner with it!

Then I mopped up all the vinegar with a cloth.  I got it as dry as I could.

Then I dried it even more with a blow dryer.

Then I covered the area with baking soda and rubbed it in with a cloth.  I left it on there for a few hours.

Then I vacuumed it all up!

Viola!  It doesn’t smell anymore!  What a cheap way to clean up a big mess 🙂

    …uummm, was it human sweat or canine sweat? …something to consider….if it returns, set up a camera to record the local canine…then proceed as necessary….

    …about the vacuuming of liquid…your shop vac is made to pick up liquids….it will suck it out of couches “like nobody’s business….”

  3. HA! It was human. We had a friend over and he sat on the corner of the couch for like, a minute, just to tie his shoe! The couch has never been the same — until yesterday, when I finally got it clean. So I don’t think it will happen again — wooden chairs only from now on! 🙂
