A COUPLE who "flip" sofas to pay off their mortgage have expressed their delight after selling one that they picked up for free for an impressive £133.
Grace and Creighton document their money-making journey on their TikTok page, and are always on the lookout for bargains they can transform.
They spotted a brown sofa being given away on Facebook, and despite the fact it was "disgusting", because "they had a lot of dogs", they saw potential.
"We tried to clean it by hand and that was just not gonna work, so we stripped the (cushions), threw them in the washer and while that was cleaning I went to work on the rest of the sofa," Grace explained.
"There were so many dog stains and grease and grime that this was just a repeated process."
She showed the dirty water being tipped out of the cleaning device onto the grass.

"Excellent work," one person commented on the video.
