The mum posted a step-by-step video showing off the method and extraordinary results.

‘How to clean and deodorize your couch,’ she wrote on the post.

‘Start by spraying couch with warm water,’ she said.

She did this by generously spraying the entire surface of her couch. 

She then sprinkled the entire grey suite with baking soda before working the cleaner into the soft fabric with a cloth.

Step four is arguably the easiest to follow.

‘Let it dry,’ she said.

How can I clean my couch in six steps? 

1. Start by spraying couch with warm water

2. Sprinkle with baking soda

3. Use a damp cloth to work in the baking soda

4. Let it dry

5. Time to vacuum

6. Use rubbing alcohol to finish 

Carolina then vacuums the couch, making sure to get into every crease.

The mum then sprays the entire surface again, this time with rubbing alcohol.

And her fans thanked her for the handy tips, with more than 13k liking the video in just three days.

139 left comments clarifying the steps and asking if the process would work to eliminate dog odour.

But others rejected the mum’s technique arguing baking soda would destroy their vacuum cleaners.

‘Don’t put baking soda on your furniture. It is too fine of a powder that will FOREVER be in there, plus it will destroy the filter in your vacuum cleaner.

‘Don’t ask me how I know. Had to buy new vacuum and get furniture professionally deep cleaned,’ one woman said.

Others thanked her for her comment.

‘I was just about to try this,’ said one.

As another said she tried a similar method a year ago and is still vacuuming up the powder.

‘And I had to get a new vacuum,’ she added. 

Carolina has 475k followers on Instagram, where she consistently uploads cleaning videos.
