Tuesday Tidbits



 Cause who doesn't like tips, tricks, help hints, 'cheat sheets', pointers and even organizing pointers to make life that much easier?!

I know I am not the only one out there with microfiber couches and kids. The combination of the two doesn't always mix. 
Luckily one set of my couches, the cushions zip off, so that I can just throw them in the washer.
Our other microfiber couch, there are no zippers or easy ways to clean the couch. I have tried to use my carpet shampooer...but it takes forever to dry and if you don't clean the entire thing, you can see the places you did and didn't clean.

Here is an easy and quick way to clean your microfiber couches...
And who doesn't love easy and quick?!

You'll need:
*A spray bottle
*A bottle of rubbing alcohol
*A sponge (white in color, or the color of your couch)
*A bristle brush

Fill your spray bottle with the rubbing alcohol and spray your spots on your couch with it. Once it is wet, use your sponge {use some elbow grease} to scrub into the stains. Your sponge will show the dirt you are getting off. 
(I did my whole couch this way)
Then let it dry, it doesn't take long, since alcohol dries fast.  

From stains to a clean couch...easy as that!

 
 Your couches won't smell like alcohol, though the room you are doing it in, may for a few minutes.

What are your tips, tricks, help hints, 'cheat sheets', pointers?!

Thank you for this! My furniture survived two kids but has not survived my toddler. I'm going to try this!
