  • Ordinary baking soda - 3 tablespoons
  • Hydrogen peroxide solution from the drugstore - 1 cup
  • Any dish detergent - a few drops.


  1. Mix the baking soda, hydrogen peroxide solution and a few drops of detergent.
  2. Make sure the baking soda is completely dissolved in the mixture.
  3. Pour the resulting mixture into a sprayer.

Before use, make sure that the mixture is evenly pulverized and that the baking soda does not clog the sprayer.

Spray the resulting mixture onto the surface of the cushion, especially in areas with minor stains. For pronounced stains, treat them directly by soaking them in the solution. Leave for 15-20 minutes, then remove the remains of the mixture with a damp sponge and let the pillow dry.
