          1. Oil stains

  • For getting rid of oil-based stains that happen when you spill a curry or a gravy dish on your couch all you would need is baking soda and water.  
  • Spray baking soda on the stained area. You can also mix the baking soda paste and water and apply it onto the stain after it gets a paste-like texture. 
  • The key objective here is to let the mixture absorb the stain as much as possible. Let the baking soda remain on the couch stain for 10-15 minutes.
