This lovely pet cover from K&H comes in a dark mocha color, and is a great choice for those who have pets with dark hair. It’s a wonderful way to protect your furniture without it looking like you deliberately placed a cover on it. Rich baffled microsuede is the material, and there are a total of two neutral colors to choose from, as well as 3 different sizes to fit any sofa, loveseat, or chair. The microsuede is perfect for capturing loose hair, and also protects your furniture from dirt and environmental pollutants. Made of 100% polyester, the cover is very easy to clean in the washing machine, and pets seem to love the cozy feel of the fabric. It’s incredibly easy to tuck the cover in and keep it in place. All in all, this is a great choice to protect your future, and not compromise the beauty of your decor.

Whether it’s Turk scratching up the side of our sofa or Hope tracking in dirt or carrying her food onto the chair, we’re always dealing with some sort of upholstery clean-up.

I try to prevent anything major with semi-regular cleaning, but for today’s Home Ec post I wanted to share a guide to cleaning upholstered furniture and protecting it from pets. xo, graceThis deluxe ivory sofa cover from Sure Fit is a great way to protect your furniture from pet hair, dander, and scratching. It’s completely tear and odor resistant, and comes with a protective finish that makes it ultra-durable. It has a velvet face with box quilting, and is a combination of poly fiberfill and microfiber fabric backing to keep the cover from sliding. Make sure that you wash this separately in the washing machine in cold water, on the gentle cycle, and never use bleach. To dry, let is tumble on low. The ivory color works well with most decor, and is ideal if you have a pet with white or blonde hair. The feel of this fabric is ultra luxurious and comfortable, for pets and their owners. It never looks like an obvious slipcover, but a fine fabric that naturally came upholstered on the couch. Let your beloved pet enjoy the comfort of your living space without worrying about wear and tear to your furniture. We love our pets, but we don’t love the messes that they leave behind for us.
