Thankfully we still have babies in the house. We use baby wipes on almost everything and whatever is in them gets most everything out.
Like Sara, we use baby wipes too (I think we used just as much before baby than we do with baby). When we purchased our couch set (microfiber) they told us at the store to use them. We once spilled grape juice on one couch...but a few baby wipes later and you couldn't even tell! (Using baby wipes the mess did look worse at first...but when it dried it looked as good as new.) Hope that helps!
I love simple tips like these for cleaning your home!
I would assume that why baby wipes work so well for cleaning up spills and stains, especially fresh ones, is that they contain a very gentle soap within them meant to clean your baby's skin, but that can also be used to clean all kinds of other things too.
Obviously at least two people have had luck with using baby wipes for cleaning their upholstery. I would love to hear even more baby wipe uses you've found for cleaning your home. You can share your uses for baby wipes here, or read other tips and uses that have already been submitted at the link.
Mix the ingredients together in a spray bottle, and shake well before using. Spray onto the dirty or stained surfaces of your upholstery and blot with a clean white cloth.
Once your upholstery is clean, use clean water to spray the area and blot again to remove the cleaning solution.
Be careful not to overwet the upholstery. Get the fabric only wet enough to clean it.
By the way, I say that I adapted the recipe you see above from the book because the original recipe also called for baking soda, but that, in my opinion, just neutralizes the acidity of the vinegar canceling out that ingredient. Therefore, I took out the 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda recommended in the original recipe.
Add the baking soda back in if you wish.
