The Custom Furniture Business: Creating Beautiful and Timeless Designs
Small businesses are the soul of America

More people are interested in buying locally made products than ever before. You can capitalize on many consumers’ return to local shopping by emphasizing that all components of your furniture are made in the United States, or in your town or area. The same applies to handmade goods. Individuals who are tired of mass-produced goods are often the same people who are interested in buying locally. Given this climate, it is a good time to start a handmade furniture business.

How do You Get Stains Out of Furniture?

Life gets messy and no exception is your furniture. We are continuously fighting a war against a difficult foe, from pouring wine on the sofa to children tracking in mud after playing outside: stains. Cleaning service Medway mentioned the most common stains and how to remove them from your furniture to help you go into battle fully-equipped.
Pre-Cleaning Tips to Remove Furniture Stains
Be sure to read through these valuable tips before you start the cleaning process:
Read the cleaning instructions given by the manufacturer.
Grab a peek at the tags.
Before you start to scrub, vacuum.
Check it out if in doubt.
A Red Wine
Wine Wednesday parties or relaxed nights at home often result in your carpet or furniture spilling into the dreaded wine spill. Try your best to not go into panic mode when this occurs. Follow these measures easily on how to clear your furniture from the wine stain and get back to sipping and enjoying the night.
Butter & Petroleum
It is not only bad for your body to eat greasy and fatty food, it is bad for your furniture. When you do not know how to remove the stain from your furniture, greasy hands leave a permanent mark. Clean it up quickly and easily with these steps when you find yourself in the middle of an oily food mess. Keep in mind, there are a few different ways to remove furniture grease stains, so take a look at all of them to see which one works best for your piece.
The Dye
Compared to a big red wine splotch on your sofa, ink stains may seem insignificant, but they will slowly turn your furniture into an art piece that no one wants to purchase. Keep your furniture looking as it did when you purchased it with these instructions, whether the children colored on the dining room chair cushions or your pen spilled ink on the sofa.
Mud & Filth
No matter what you do, over the year, mud and dirt will be tracked into the property. The goal is to keep the dirt in the entryway, but that doesn't always work out as we'd like it to work. With children, pets, and visitors, preventing mud from dirtying your home is almost an impossible task.
Caffee & Beer
Beer and coffee are the two staple beverages of most working adults. These drinks are delicious and brighten up your day until your furniture is sadly darkened by stains. Out of fear of their staining ability, do not remove the drinks from your diet. Simply use these instructions on how to clear the stain from your furniture on those messy days.
Pet Stains
Our fur babies bring our homes so much joy and laughter, but they bring stinky messes as well. Don't be distracted for too long by those sweet "I'm sorry eyes" because the stains left by your pets can turn your home into one big smelly kennel. By taking these measures on how to remove the stains from your furniture, keep your home fresh and clean:
Mix one cup of white vinegar and one cup of cold water with the solution.
Onto the stain, spray solution (Be careful not to soak the area).
To blot the stain, add a clean towel or fabric. Work from the stain's outside edges to the middle.
Give your business a name. Name your business something that indicates what you sell. This will come in handy later on, when you are marketing your business and want people to associate your business name with handmade furniture.
File a DBA, which stands for “doing business as,” at your local county clerk’s office. You may want to do a search to ensure that no other business in your town is operating under the same name. If you live in a large metropolitan area, a search is a necessity.
Create a line of furniture. You’ll need to have models of each piece of furniture that you intend to sell, so that customers can easily visualize what you have to offer. Add to your furniture line each year so that your stock stays fresh and on-trend.
