So, kids and couch met snack time, and now you need to remove chocolate stains? No problem.
If the upholstery cleaning codes are still visible, this is a good place to start. (Or read the guide to deciphering upholstery codes.) Follow the care recommendations as detailed.
If they're not visible, or are unreadable, these upholstery cleaning tips for chocolate stain removal can help get rid of that chocolate stain.
Create an upholstery and fabric cleaner by mixing 1 teaspoon laundry detergent and one cup of water in a bowl or bucket.
Blot the chocolate stain solution onto the upholstery with a clean rag or white paper towels. Allow the solution to sit for 30 minutes on the upholstery or furniture.
If a ring or a remnants of the chocolate stain remain, feather the edges with a cloth dampened with full strength hydrogen peroxide. No mixing required here. Just use 3 percent, undiluted.
Using a separate damp (not dripping wet) clean rag or paper towel, blot-rinse the solution from the upholstery or furniture. Keep dabbing water on until no more solution or chocolate appears on your paper towels or rag.
Do a final rinse with a mix of one-half cup white vinegar and one-half cup warm water to remove the cleaning solution. Dab onto the upholstery or furniture stains; immediately blot dry.
To keep such confections from sweetening the sofa or upholstery in the future, keep the kids and the good stuff separate. At least during snack time.
