Catsup Ketchup. Tips to remove Catsup stains from upholstery

As you first notice a ketchup or catsup stain, it is important to take a butter knife and scrape away as much of the excess liquid as you can.

Using a paper towel or a towel to clean up the catsup mess without spreading the stain is recommended. After you have removed as much of the excess liquid as you can blot the area to bring out deep moisture.

Is the stain is still in the upholstery, add a few drops of detergent to the water, and spray the stained area.Try not to over wet the area too much. Blot and dab the moistened area until you have removed the entire stain or until no more of the catsup coloring is coming out of the upholstery.

Rinse the fabric well, using sprays of water over the stained area.Blot and dab the area with a paper towel or a clean cloth until the upholstery is cleaned of the suds. You want to make sure that all of the liquid laundry detergent is out of the upholstery.

Rinse the fabric one last time with a spray solution of vinegar and water, using a half and half mixture.

Dab and blot the upholstery until you have covered the entire stain, and you are not finding any coloring from the catsup on your towel or in the upholstery.
