We have just bought a used sofa which smells of tobacco. Its also dirty, we
wouldn't have bought it other than the fact it was cheap and all we could
afford. Can anyone help me out and tell me what will get rid of the smell
and clean it also. I am in the UK of that helps (re, products)
I watch the house doctor on TV and they use a machine that cleans sofa's.
Anyone know what they are?
Here in the UK our long upholstered seats are called sofa's or settee's. I
have never heard an ashtray being called a sofa before, was someone pulling
your leg perhaps?. I am looking for a way to clean the long upholstered
seat, not an ashtray. Thanks Joy
Here in the USA, we use various names for "sofa" depending on the
location. Couch, setee, davenport, love seat, and sofa are all the
same. There are pressurized cans of upholstery cleaners sold in the
automotive section. Most have deodorizers in them. Setting the sofa
in full sun for a few hours then using a rug beater will help.
Fabreeze is usually a good product for eliminating odors. Another
option is to use a slipcover.
Thanks for the help. I cannot possibly do it then. You mentioned putting it
out in full sun, did you read the bit where I said I lived in the UK? LOL
; ) I know what you mean though I went to Benidorm once.
Seriously thanks for the help will give it a whirl
