It has been a little over a year since we moved into our “fur-ever home” (aka the #FraggyHome) and one of our struggles (even while we lived in a condo) is keeping the sofa clean. Our pets, Booboo and Bellatrix (an 11-year-old Shih Tzu and a 4-year-old Persian Doll Face), are way too spoiled and love staying on the couch with us. Booboo’s saliva, in particular, leaves marks all over (whenever he licks his paws)—so I try to deep clean the sofa as often as possible.
My mom taught me her way of doing it (baking soda + color-safe bleach). But ever since I gave birth and started working again, I haven’t had the time or energy. Our helper tried cleaning the couch recently using my mom’s formula. But there were just too many saliva stains to remove.
Deep Clean Your Sofa with Ate Girl PH
So I decided to hire professional cleaners! My kabarkada recommended Ate Girl PH. They sent an Ate and a Kuya to deep clean our Candrea Sofa Bed from Home Suite and my husband Cayo’s recliner. They vacuumed, shampooed, and dried both furniture in 3 to 4 hours. And they weren’t as expensive as I thought they would be!
Protect Your Sofa with Scotchgard Fabric Water Shield
After everything, I sprayed what I usually spray every time the couch is clean again—Scotchgard’s Fabric Water Shield. It protects our couch long enough before Booboo’s saliva starts staining it again.
Anyway—I just wanted to share how happy I am with how Ate Girl deep cleaned our sofa. I’ll probably hire them quarterly to keep our couch immaculate and constantly free from Booboo’s saliva!
