On the Road in February

Two months, y’all. Two months of 2015 are already GONE. I mean, February WAS a short month, to be fair. But WOW. 

I could go on for a while about how fast time is flying, but we all know that! So, without further ado, here are the top five posts, the one’s y’all loved the best, for the month of February!

Famous Methods for Sofa Cleaning…with Various Upholstery Types! – A Guest Post!

If you came by my house today, you would see towels on our sofa and on our love-seat.

I mean, they’re nice towels; they were purchased to match the furniture, actually. But they are towels, nonetheless.

The thing is, we have two furries that live with us: CoCo the black kitty and Taffy the white doggy. These furries (although they are treated as members of our family, without a doubt) are rather messy.

For instance, CoCo the black kitty’s favorite spot to run to after she gets out of her litter box is the love seat. I wish I knew why. But all I really know is that it gets a little…sandy…up there.

And Taffy the white doggy is a bit OCD, I think. She likes to lounge on the couch and lick her paw…and then the couch. Blech.

Now, why can’t these blasted animals be trained to quit messing up our microfiber furniture?! I’m sure they can be…but both hubby and I work outside of the home all day long…so there’s not much time for reinforcing.

First of all, I’m on the hunt for some new furniture. Because once the kids come along, I know the furries will have NOTHING on them! So if anyone has seen any gray leather sectionals around, do let me know! 

Second of all, I had literally finished cleaning the couch and love seat and adding the towels to them (in a desperate attempt to preserve the cleanliness of both pieces) when I was contacted by the lovely Sofia with this blog post! Perfect timing! I loved it, and I know you will, too!

Because of that, it’s good to pay more attention to the sofa cleaning during the big house cleaning every season. Take a look at some ideas and methods that can help you!

On Covering Chairs

Have you ever covered a chair before? I mean, a simple kitchen or dining room chair. (While I would LOVE to be able to recover large pieces of furniture, I haven’t gotten that advanced yet!)

This is only the second time I’ve covered chairs, but it’s pretty dang easy as far as I’m concerned. I may start covering them for every special occasion! (Just kidding, in case my hubby’s reading this.)

Here’s what the dining room chairs looked like at our old place – the colors of that dining room were browns and blues:
