wash your microfiber couch

After tearing apart the couch Tuesday so that it was light enough for preggo to lift it up for Jack to look under (for the lizard) & clear out the toy store that had collected under there, I was inspired to finally clean my cushions. They were long overdue.

I just wanted to share with any of you who have microfiber couches & may not know this that you can unzip your cushion covers & wash them in the washing machine! A few years ago after getting tired of scrubbing my couch only to end up with water spots after all was said & dried, I was frustrated and wondered if I could just wash the cushion covers. I started with the throw pillows that came with the couch as a test since I didn't really care if something happened to them (like shrinkage). After a successful test I just went for it with the other ones. The results were amazing. It was a total pain in the A to get the chaise cover back on, but it was worth it! It was like I had a new couch!

That being said, definitely test a throw pillow before you ruin your whole couch! I don't want you blaming me if you wash your cushions & it doesn't work out & you have to replace your couch.

Like the time I told Wendy she could adjust the depth of her Kitchenaid paddle. I never told her to turn her Kitchenaid upside down to do it but she did & oil started leaking out all over and she had to pay to get it repaired. I think she blamed me for the bright idea. :)
