Cleaning fan shares shaving cream hack that makes sofas and rugs ‘look like new’


One cleaning enthusiast shared details of a cleaning hack involving shaving foam, and others were quick to call it “excellent” and “a revelation”.

They had already heard that shaving cream was an effective stain remover and so decided to try it on their sofa at home – and were “so impressed” with the results.

Before applying the cream, the chair looks dirty with a number of stains, but afterwards it is shiny and spotless.

Speaking to the Cleaning Tips and Tricks Facebook group, they shared photos of their couch before and after performing the shaving foam hack.

They wrote: “So impressed, thanks for the shaving foam recommendation!

“I first used a brush to break up the dirt, then I put shaving foam on it on a dry cloth. I admit that I left it on for over an hour because I got distracted, then I used a hot, damp cloth to wipe everything down (with a little nudge behind it) and voila! Chair like new!”
