Tips to Save your Sofa 

  • Rotate your couch cushions at least on a monthly basis, or more often as needed. 
  • Weekly or more, take off your couch cushions and vacuum your couch from top to bottom. 
  • If possible, avoid eating or drinking near or on the couch unless it’s water. If you do, use trays or mats to help prevent and block spills.

  • Wash hands often, especially between meals and before spending time on your furniture.
