You have a few different options if you want to try D.I.Y. upholstery cleaning.  You can run the vacuum over the surface of the upholstery and then use a soap and vinegar mixture to try to clean the surface (be sure to test this on an inconspicuous area first to avoid stains.)  You can also use special upholstery cleaners to try to clean the soft furniture, and you can sprinkle baking soda on it and then vacuum it up to try to make the upholstered furniture smell better.  These options can be OK if you are just concerned about surface stains and if you don’t think your upholstery needs a true deep clean.
