1. Shampoo
You can remove stains from a sofa or a carpet with shampoo. Apply the shampoo undiluted to the stain. Massage with a damp cloth or sponge. 

2. Baking soda
You can remove stains from a sofa with baking soda. Dissolve a few spoonfuls of soda in hot water. Apply this mixture to the stain with a sponge. Dry the spot with a cloth. This method is less suitable for removing an absorbed stain.

3. Iron
You can use an iron to remove stains from fabrics. Be careful, because irons get hot. First prepare a mixture of hot water and a small amount of detergent. Apply the mixture liberally to the stain. The stain should be properly wet. Leave it to absorb for a few minutes. Then put a cloth over the stain and iron this with the iron until the spot is dry. 

4. Soft household soap
Soft household soap is often used to remove stains. Prepare a mixture of lukewarm water and soft household soap. Use a sponge to scrub the stain from the sofa or the carpet. Then dry the stain with a towel and leave it to air dry.

The above tips only work for removing stains from a fabric sofa. If you have a leather sofa and looking for a leather sofa stain remover, use HG deep cleaner for leather.
