Ward your furniture and upholstery from those damaging future stains

As a homeowner, one of the most common issues you might run into with furniture is staining. From a drop of curry sauce right onto that fresh new upholstery to red wine spills, we have all been there. Stains can be hard to remove, and even with plenty of elbow grease and cleaning, they can still be quite visible. Just as annoying as the after-effect of staining, though, is the likelihood of future stains.

While there is nothing you can do to fully protect your furniture from future stains (outside of wrapping it in plastic), you can use some protective tools to help keep your furniture resistant to future damage. At the very least, this might stop the stains from being as damaging or as permanent as they might first appear. So, how can you protect against future stains?

Dealing with future stains the easy way

The simplest thing you can do to stay on top of those damaging future stains is to take a look at using something like an upholstery protector. These treatments are very specific, though, so be sure to read the instructions carefully. Only some upholstery protectors are suitable for every material, you see, so you risk damaging upholstery if you use the wrong kind of cleaning and care.

A little bit of pre-treatment using an upholstery protector, though, can be a useful way to help add an extra layer of security. This will not stop the stain from occurring, but it should make it easier to lift and clean down the line.

Invest in future protection

Another aspect of handling future stains is to buy some stain and odour removal kits. You can find these online and in home stores. Again, make sure that what you buy is suitable for your type of furniture. What you would use to protect leather, for example, is quite different to what you would use to protect certain fabrics. 

Keep that in mind, but having some stain and odour removal kits around the house is always a good idea.

Buy into typical home remedies

One of the best things you can do is have the typical home remedies like baking soda and white vinegar lying around. You can mix this into a concoction that will help you clean out most typical stains. Unless you spill something very specific that needs a particular cleaning solution, most typical stains can be blotted and dealt with simply by using a mixture of baking soda, water, and vinegar. 

Having these typical remedies means that future stains can be quickly attacked so that you can lessen their impact.
