The upholstery on your furniture can pick up body odor and need cleaning or refreshing. This is a guide about removing body odor from furniture.
Here are questions related to Removing Body Odor From Furniture.
I have a sectional sofa that everyone always ends up taking a nap on. It has recently begun to smell like sweat. I have tried steaming it, using Febreze, and upholstery cleaner and nothing seems to help. It still has the smell of body odor.
*Be sure to test that colors don't fade or bleed before treating sofa.* Mix in spray bottle: 16 oz. hydrogen peroxide, 2 tsp baking soda, 1-2 tsp hand dishwashing liquid. Spray on, rub w/ fingertips to foam a little if can, blot off excess after a few (10?) minutes w/ clean terry towel. Should not stink after treatment. This recipe was for cat urine stains/smells, but worked on my sofa, too. Note: Just mix what you think you will use at one time, not sure if it works or works as well after sitting a while. It works b/c of the chemical reaction of the ingredients. No fumes though. Good Luck!

Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with water to form a paste, apply to area where the smell is, leave there for 10 minutes, then wipe with wet towel, repeat if necessary. Note: make a test patch on a small area first to check if the color fades or bleeds, if not continue to apply the baking soda on the area. You can increase the paste if you need to cover a large portion of the sofa, just estimate the amount needed to cover the particular area of the sofa.

How do I get rid of the horrible smell of stinky feet and body odor from my furniture without breaking the bank?

It worked on my son's truck, that had less than pleasant smells. I had to lean the bucket seats all the way back, and treat the backs the same way. (05/24/2009)
Another idea: You can try hydrogen peroxide. Put it into a well-marked spray bottle. Peroxide will fizz out the odor with oxygen. It also works with only organic stains and odors. This may lighten your fabric. Be sure to check a spot first. No need to rinse. (05/24/2009)
