    Default Did you know ...

    Frontline bleaches leather?!?!?! Yeup. We found out the hard way. Hubby put on Chunk's Frontline and ran out to the store, came back to orange-ish spots on our one couch cushion (couch is brown leather). We had no idea what happened until Hubby's work buddy sent a link showing that Frontline can bleach leather and other surfaces. Grrrreaatt. Thankfully we got the couch on Craigslist for cheap to see how it would work out with the Chunkster before we made a major investment. Anyone know if any other topical treatments do this? We also just switched to a topical heartworm preventative (I forget the name and quite frankly, my prego butt is too tired to go back downstairs). Has anyone used anything like this?

    @Chunksmama if you use Sentinel for heartworms it will keep your fleas at bay. We do not use any topical flea med. Only Sentinel and have never had a flea problem

    Thanks for the info @Davidh! That might be what we switched to (the vet did mention that it did more than heartworm prevention). I'll have to look in the morning. We have never had any flea problems (knock on wood) but we do live in an apt complex with a lot of dogs so I try to keep the Chunkster as covered bug/pest-wise as possible. I am very sure some of these people do not take care of their doggies like I do!

    Yikes! I can see that happening due to the chemicals in it. If it were my couch, I'd try dabbing some Old English Dark Oil on it too see if will darken the orange spot.

    Sorry i dont know anything about frontline, but the advantage multi stuff that i use on lola stinks to high heaven. I would say that now is the time to buy a new leather couch on sale though maybe if you treat the leather with some waterproofing/mink oil (not real mink oil) the medicine would just crust off next time?

    @JeannieCO Thanks for the idea! My husband said color it with brown Sharpie ... ugh MEN!!! I switched it to where the spots are on the end of the couch and was considering investing in some larger throw pillows to cover it.

    @aprilemari ... I would love to purchase another ... but I have a baby on the way so I'll stick with this til we are out of the messy years!!! I'll check out the mink oil too - thanks!!!

    I think checking at a craft place for the stuff they use to stain leatherwork if the old English doesn't work might be an idea too.

    Good idea on the craft store too, I'm not crafty either. Brown Sharpie, men!
