How To Clean Your Sofa/Couch With Oxiclean

OxiClean Stain has teamed up with POPSUGAR Select to bring you this article on cleaning your couch. With OxiClean, you can now tackle those stubborn stains and keep your sofa looking fresh and new. As a parent, I know how challenging it can be to maintain a beautiful couch when you have little ones running around. But fret not, there is still hope for your beloved sofa!

The Washability Factor

When my children were small, I quickly learned that having anything nice was nearly impossible. Our once-gorgeous leather couch had to be replaced due to tears caused by their tiny hands and feet. So, we decided to look for a gently used couch instead and found one on Craigslist. We knew that we might have to replace it again in the next five years, but we didn’t want to break the bank. Spending $250 on a used couch seemed much more reasonable compared to $1250 for a brand-new one.

Unleash the Power of OxiClean

Our second-hand couch came with washable covers that I’ve had to clean multiple times due to various “incidents” over the past year. However, there was one area of the couch where I discovered stubborn berry stains that I just couldn’t remove. That’s when I turned to OxiClean and its wide range of uses.

The OxiClean website boasts over 101 uses for their product, making it a great investment. Today, we’ll be focusing on how to clean your couch using OxiClean. Here’s what you’ll need:


  • 1 cup water
  • OxiClean scoop (to the “B” line)
  • funnel
  • spray bottle

To start, add the OxiClean to hot water (no need to heat the water, simply use the hottest setting from your faucet). Stir the mixture well to combine. Next, pour the solution through a funnel into a spray bottle, attach the nozzle, and shake vigorously to ensure thorough mixing.

Say Goodbye to Stains

Now, it’s time to tackle those stubborn stains on your couch. Spray the OxiClean solution onto the stained areas, making sure they are wet but not completely saturated. Allow the solution to sit for about 5 minutes. After the waiting period, take a damp white cloth and gently wipe away the stain. Finish by using a dry white cloth to remove any excess treatment. Voila! Your stains should be a thing of the past.

Remember, the effectiveness of the OxiClean solution lasts for around 8 hours, so make the most of it. Take this opportunity to treat any other upholstered items in your home. I personally attacked our dining room chairs while I had the solution mixed up and they look so much better now!

If there’s any remaining solution, don’t waste it. You can simply add it to your next load of laundry. This way, you maximize its usefulness and reduce waste.

OxiClean for Every Task

In the past week, I have used OxiClean Stain to clean our outdoor furniture cushions, remove set-in stains from my girls’ clothing, and even tackle a stubborn “yellow” stain on a delicate white sweater that had been stored away since last fall. I must say, I am truly impressed with how well OxiClean works and how versatile it is. It has become an essential tool in our cleaning arsenal.

So, let this guide on how to clean a couch with OxiClean help you extend the life of your sofa. We may be in a phase of our lives where we can’t have our dream couches, but that doesn’t mean we have to put up with stains ruining their beauty. With OxiClean, you can say goodbye to those pesky stains and enjoy a fresh and clean sofa once again!
