Act Like A Pro… Work With A Plan.

Next to perhaps a refrigerator and bedroom set, a high-quality purchase of a couch is not for the frugal, either financially or time wise. I can recall buying an entire houseful of furniture and finding it delivered before I got home the very same day. Not so much anymore. Factory built pieces have been left for the history books of designer’s edge. Variable degrees of comfort, cushioning material, nailed or stapled framing or metal framed bolt and nut. Spring lift footrests, swivel reclining ottoman options, cup holders, remote keepers, theater seating surround sound outfitted USB charging ports…..ARGGGGHHHHH! So many choices. Is it any wonder it can take anywhere from 2 to weeks from purchase to delivery? So why would you NOT want to keep it pristine? Don’t be a Lazy Boy…if there is a blood stain on your couch, let’s be brave and act now.


** before undertaking the cleaning of blood, especially on a socially used or shared area, always be aware of the possibilities of blood bourn activity and wear gloves and a face mask**

You see it, you deny it, you take a second look…closer…CLOSER….poke at it and stare open jawed at the tip of your finger! Normally, I would say start cleaning it immediately, but put the brakes on! When it comes to couches, and cleaning blood off them, first find the upholstery tag and look for the cleaning letter codes.

If you see an X, you know it marks the spot. Spot remover, that is. More precisely, the X means do NOT attempt to clean this as it needs a professional service. While researching this, be prepared to shell out anywhere from $50.00 for an armchair or small love seat to $200.00 and upward for a couch. If the tag reads either W, S or SW, you’re clear to go ahead and use water or an OTC solvent cleaner keeping in mind:

W = Water only.
S = Solvent only. Do NOT use water as it will shrink or leave water stains on the fabric.
WS= Combination is acceptable.
X= Professional cleaning service ONLY.

Is it polished or nubuck leather, suede with a nap, cotton, wool, silk, rayon or a weave of others? Whatever the material, before liberally dousing it with Spot B Gone, perform a test on an inconspicuous area using a cotton swab dabbed with cleanser. If there is no adverse reaction, then let’s go onto step 3. The presoak. As always, use COLD water or an ice cube and begin to press and pat blot. Your blotting cloth should be a light color or all white cloth as not to contribute to the stain cleaning process by bleeding its own stain into the mélange. If the water doesn’t work, let’s get moving onto step 4. Your in-home DIY all-purpose stain removal kit. (aka the kitchen and bathroom cupboards)

  • Hydrogen Peroxide. A capful at a time, try this and let science be your guide. Any bubbling reaction is a good thing. Blot blot, dab. Stain gone? If not….
  • Rubbing Alcohol. Along with a soft bristled nail or toothbrush.
  • Salt and Lemon juice may be a good rim rub for a cocktail glass, but it also can get right to heart of a blood stain.
  • Baking soda and liquid soap paste gently massaged into the fabric. Let dry and brush away the powder…and hopefully the blood stain with it.
  • Hairspray. Apparently not only a great movie in every version and remake, but also a product suitable to break down the enzymes in blood due to the alcohol content.

After the cleaning process is complete and the couch is dry, consider applying a stain guard protectant to assuage any repeat accidents from settling in for the show. If you tend to be the host/ess with most/ess and throw a lot of social gatherings, opt for draping your prized possession in a complimentary throw blanket with a few decorative pillows and keeping an extra stash of white serviette napkins and a bottle or two of sparkling water on hand; in both the living area and the nearest washroom. Your guests will be grateful to know that you are looking out for their well-being along with your own all for the sake of a piece of furniture. Cleaning blood off a couch or even a rug or carpet shouldn’t be a social disaster. Now, pass the popcorn and the wine….make it red. I feel like watching a slasher flick….
