1 of 20 1. Couch
Spraying your couch down with Febreze doesn’t do much to remove the dirt. Next time you’re cleaning, move your couch. You’ll notice all the dirt, crumbs, and lost socks that have been left behind. Couches can get incredibly dirty with daily use, even if you don’t have pets.
Animals can make the fabric, under the cushions, and under the couch so much dirtier than you can imagine. To keep your couch in good condition (or at least good enough that your guests don’t grimace when they sit), take all the cushions off and vacuum everything once a month. If you’re really worried about your couch, you can usually remove the fabric from the cushions and wash them. Just make sure to identify the fabric so you don’t ruin the perfect softness!
