Buyer's Guide

HOW DO I KEEP MY SOFA SLIPCOVER IN PLACE?

Depending on the type of couch you have in your house. Some covers may slip off or slide off easily. The best option would be to have some straps installed so you can hook it from the back and keep it in place or you can get a few with a grip at the bottom so they don’t slide off easily. Some covers however come with both straps and the non-skid grip so you can have the best of both worlds. 

 

HOW DO I KEEP MY COUCH CUSHIONS FROM SINKING? 

There are many different ways to keep your couch cushions looking plump and healthy. You could go with them to professional manufacturers so they can mend them and fill them up, or you go DIY and cut out some foam squares and stuff them into cushions until you get the feel that you want. 

 

HOW CAN I PROTECT MY COUCH FROM MY DOG?

Dogs are very lovable creatures. However, some of the things they do though with innocent intentions may send our tempers spiralling out of control. From staining our couches, biting on the armrests, digging and scratching everything till they reach their goal (pheeew) that’s actually a lot. But if you want to protect your couch  you’re going to either ban your dog from the house, get it it’s own dog house and bed. Or you could get a cover that will be the sacrificial knight of your couch. A cover will go through everything that your couch is supposed to go through, blocking all stains and damage that may affect your couch. 

 

HOW CAN I PROTECT MY SOFA FROM PETS?

Well other than getting your pet its own bed so it stays away from your sofa, another option would be to keep your pets outside and ban them from staying indoors. But with different reasons, others don’t sit well with this idea, so if you want to keep your pet indoors and protect your couch the best option would be to buy a sofa cover/protector. This will not only protect your sofa from your pets, but kids as well, and dirt, and at times out fur which may be really annoying especially on fabric sofas.

 

HOW DO YOU CLEAN A FABRIC SOFA? 

Depending on the care label of that sofa the general use would be to use dye-free liquid soap or any laundry soap/detergent suitable for soft and delicate materials. Just add it in water and use it to scrub, wipe or brush off stains. Take care not to use hard or tough tools as that could pull out the yarn. 

 

SHOULD YOU COVER LEATHER SOFAS? 

Like every other natural material, the leather may be resistant to some natural elements. However, too much of anything can and will make anything sick. For instance, too much sun can wear your leather soda down so much it’ll look 20 before it’s even 5. So the best way to protect your leather couch would be to cover it. Especially if it’s prone to the sun’s UV rays. It will need more protection than sunscreen can provide. Also, apart from natural elements, leather will start to show signs of giving in and breaking with time and this can be even faster if it’s continuously cleaned. One way to stop this would be to get your couch a cover that will protect it from both damage and dirt so that you go easy with the cleaning products on it.

 

HOW DO YOU MAKE LEATHER COUCH LESS SLIPPERY? 

If you want to clean your leather couch at the same time making it less slippery and getting rid off that strong leather smell. The best if you don’t want to use commercial products would be the white vinegar solution. Use equal portions of water and vinegar and wipe the couch down. Make sure to dampen the cloth so as to not actually make the sofa wet.

Final Thoughts

I guess we’re done here, you’re satisfied, I’m sure your pet is satisfied with the new look as well, I’m certain your couch is more than happy for the retirement and I’m sure the new look will definitely meet your standards, and I’m sure your kids are just as excited for the extra padding on the couch as well. At least now you can rest and never have to worry about cleaning the couch. 

Just take the cover, throw it in the washer, or vacuum it and strap it back on. Easy-peasy like lemon squeezy. There you have it, let us call it a form of decorative protection. If you’re happy, then your couch is happy and so am I. Sadly this is where our journey ends. I hope you have a great shopping spree!!
