Baking Soda Does Not Deteriorate the Fabric

Many people have the wrong conception regarding baking soda that sodium bicarbonate may damage the fabric quality. Do you know that all fabrics are not the same? There is a wide range of fabrics such as silk, nylon, wool, cotton, Indian cotton, micro suede and many others.

Sometimes the excess use of water may damage the fabric because silk, wool, and micro suede items are more susceptible to water. That is why you should check the care tags of the furniture. A water-based solution is applicable to ‘W’ care tag furniture.

If your furniture comes with ‘S’ care tags, then you should use isopropyl liquid as an alternative to water-based solutions.
