Thread: Couches

  1. #1

    Default Couches

    OK everyone, what type of material are your sofas, etc? Micro-fiber? Leather? Covered in duct tape? Not only do we have two bullies who LOVE being on the furniture, but we also have 6 kids (ages 5-16) who do too. Need to replace the couches and looking for ideas. .... Trigger chews everything, Winston drools like crazy, the kids are messy of course too. Ive heard and read micro fiber over leather, but I'm not sure about cleaning skin kid, or fur kid vomit off that. ... ??

    Leather. Very easy to clean. Can't imagine having anything but leather with bulldogs.

    Only thing is, the leather won't look good for long if you don't keep something over it. I keep a blanket on it, but it doesn't help much. There are still scratches all over.

    Leather.... As Ellie stated, just wipe it off. We do not cover and have two sets. The set in the basement is about 13 years old still in very good shape. Family room set is about two yrs old, other than one spot that Banks 'nested' it has some scratches, but nothing major

    We have microfiber and everrryyything gets stuck to that stuff. It's easy enough to clean if the covers zip off of the cushions (just wash inside-out on a gentle cycle, dry on low) but drool and their post-food slobber they love to rub all over will make a mess in no time haha.

    That said... I don't like the idea of my bum sticking to leather, or it feeling cold, or slippery when i want to sleep on it. So we'll probably stick with the micro fiber. Winslow's not allowed on there anyway! Haha

    Oh yes, I highly recommend leather with a splash of duct tape. In fact, I have a custom-made one that's "for sale". Let me know if you'd be interested, @triggerSnores!

    We have both leather and micro fiber and the leather has held up much better than the micro fiber..both of our boys sleep on them and the only thing I have to say is the smells do not come out of the micro fiber couch

    Leather, and it holds up very well. As long as we have dogs, we will always have a leather couch.

    Leather is bully approved.

    Leather is the best!! Don't be fooled by "bonded"' leather(it's leather and vinyl mixed. Pleather is fake leather.) You want the real thing! By the way @cali baker has a couch real cheap! designed by Bullies,too.
