Many couches start to smell over time as dirt, grease, hair, and food crumbs accumulate. Couches can also get a quick blast of stink if a pet or child pees on them, or if you let your friend with stinky feet sleep on your sofa for the night. Whatever the reason, it’s easy to remove odors from your couch. First, check if your couch can tolerate water-based cleaners. If it can, make your own deodorizer from white vinegar and spray the couch. If your couch can’t tolerate water, vacuum the couch and use baking soda and other dry solvents to get it smelling fresh.
