Thanksgiving is almost here and if you're hosting, you have a lot on your plate (literally!)

We wash our floors, our sinks and counter tops but we often forget about the couch! We sit on it every day and some of us let our pets lounge on it too. Here are 5 easy steps for cleaning your couch.

1. Use your vacuum hose/attachment to give the couch and pillows a once over. Don't forget to flip the cushions so you can remove dust, allergens and pet hair from all surfaces.
