Now is the best time to disinfect your furniture, especially your sofa. While your sofa may look clean, it’s definitely not clean. Spraying a disinfectant solution on your sofa will help sterilize your sofa and keep it smelling fresh.
Here is the step-by-step process on how to make and apply DIY Disinfectant Solution for your sofa:
First, vacuum your sofa. If the cushions are removable, take them off your sofa and set them aside. Vacuum the seat and back portion, not forgetting each little crevice, especially the corners. Also vacuum the top, bottom, arms, and sides of the sofa.
Next, vacuum the seat and back cushions. You will want to eliminate as much dirt, dust, and debris before spraying on the disinfectant solution.
Then, apply the DIY disinfectant spray. See below on how to make and apply the disinfectant based on the material of your sofa.

Mix equal parts water and white vinegar in a large container, like a bucket or a pot. Soak a microfiber cloth into the solution and then wring out as much liquid as possible.
If you can, take the seat and back cushions off of the sofa. Using the disinfectant solution, wipe down your leather sofa, working through sections, so you don’t miss any surface area. Next, wipe the disinfectant on the seat and back cushions. Then, go back with a soft, dry towel to wipe away the solution on both the sofa and the cushions.
