How to Clean a Microsuede Couch with One Simple Ingredient | Real Food RN

I never thought I would get such joy from learning how to clean a microsuede couch, but this really is awesome! Our couch plays many roles in our house: bed, trampoline, fort….and canvas for food and drink. My kids spill something on it almost hourly. There is no such thing as a leak-proof sippy. We have tried them all! I really do not like to look at all those stains, but I also don't want to use harsh chemicals to clean it up. Then someone taught me this technique! AHmazing! Here is how it goes down….

What you need:

First, here is a before picture of my beautiful stained couch! (this is actually pretty tame for my kids, it's usually much worse!)

Directions:

  • Pour isopropyl alcohol into spray bottle. Straight up!
  • Spray your couch liberally with the sprayer. I mean soak your couch! Don't worry, it evaporates

  • Now take your scouring pad and SCRUB! Scrub those stains very well and really work it! Add more alcohol if needed
  • Repeat the scrubbing with your kitchen sponge, to soak up some of the dirt. I also use a white towel sometimes.
  • Let it dry completely
  • Grab your brush and brush back and forth over the suede. This step really polishes it up nice!

  • Repeat if the stains are still visible. Some stains take a few treatments to get out….especially marker and nail polish!
  • Ta da! It's like new!
