The first thing to get done when a fresh spill has landed on your couch is to grab a few paper towels or an absorbent cloth. Place it on the stain delicately. Do not rub or dab, as this could further push it deeper into the fibres of your settee. Leave it for 5-10 minutes to soak up as much as possible.

Get a deep bowl ready. Pour 100ml of lemon juice into the bowl and add a tablespoon of soda bicarbonate. The mixture will fizz, creating foam and bubbles on the top. Dip a cloth into the foam part of the solution and apply to the stain.
Or you can pour 50ml of water into a cup or bowl and add a few drops of washing up liquid. Stir with fast motions to make a foam and use only the bubbly foam to clean the velvet upholstery. Keep blotting the stain gently until it is no longer visible. It is important for the velvet fabric to dry quickly. Use a hair dryer or fan to accelerate the drying process.

The best way to get the smell out of a velvet couch is to use baking soda. Velvet does not like water, and since baking soda is dry, it removes odor without deteriorating the quality of the fabric. Sprinkle a generous bottle of baking soda all over the couch and let it sit overnight. Vacuum away the powder and groom the couch by brushing it gently.
If the odor fails to disappear completely, repeat the steps again but allow the powder to sit on the couch for much longer.
