The fabric headboard is a beautiful addition to any bedroom. They are available in a variety of colors and styles to add beauty to your space. It's also comfortable to lean on if you want to read or watch TV in bed. However, fabric headboards can get dirty and require regular cleaning. But don't worry. We'll give you some tips on how to clean fabric headboard stains.

Regular Cleaning

Because the fabric headboard is covered with fabric, it can collect dust, dirt, and pet hair. One of the best things you can do for an fabric headboard is to clean it regularly. If that sounds daunting, we assure you it's not that bad. All you have to do is vacuum the headboard.

To vacuum the headboard, use the arm attachment of the vacuum cleaner. If you can, turn the vacuum down and use short strokes, working left to right and then top to bottom to make sure you get any remaining dirt.

Dealing With Stains

Sometimes, stains happen, that's life. Luckily, we have a few different ways to remove stains from fabric headboards.

Steam Cleaning: If your vacuum has a steam cleaning feature, this is one of the easiest ways to remove stains. Unfortunately, most vacuums don't have this feature, but there are so many more ways we can get rid of these stains.

Get a Professional: If the stain is severe, has multiple spots, or you don't want to clean it yourself, you can always contact a professional cleaner to remove the stain. Hiring a professional can be expensive, so keep that in mind before answering the phone.

DIY: You can always try to remove the stain yourself. This is the cheapest option and you can do it on your own time. We'll give you some cleaning tips and tricks for removing stains yourself, with step-by-step options. 

Tip 1: Liquid

If something gets spilled on the headboard, immediately soak up as much as you can with a clean towel or paper towel. Blot the stain to prevent it from soaking further into the fabric.

Tip 2: Oil or Grease Stains

Removing oil or oil stains from fabrics can be daunting, but in this case, baking soda or baby powder are your best friends. Apply baking soda or baby powder to the stain and let it sit for at least an hour. After the powder is fully absorbed, use a vacuum to see how it looks. Don't be discouraged if the stain persists. Gently apply a small amount of a mild detergent mixture (a mixture of dish soap and water) by spraying or blotting in from the outside of the stain. Then let it dry and vacuum the headboard again.

Tip 3: Settled Stains

If the stain has set, there is still hope. Apply a small amount of fabric or upholstery stain remover (after testing on a hidden part of the headboard). Wait an hour. If the stain persists, try again or use one of the methods above.

Tip 4: Let the Fabric Dry

Make sure the fabric is completely dry, or you could get yourself into trouble in the future. Blot up any remaining liquid and let it air dry. You can also use a hair dryer if you want it to dry faster.
