Our kid-friendly fabric is designed to resist stains, maintain its color, and be durable enough to weather the daily wear and tear only kids can bring. To show how well it holds up, we put a sofa to the ultimate kid test. They did their worst, but with some simple cleaning, our sofa came out still looking great!
Kids can bring so much color and excitement to your life… They can also bring that to your furniture, what with spills, or the random decision to finger-paint your sofa cushions! As cute as kids can be, they can also wreak havoc on your upholstery, which is why we include kid-friendly fabric options for all our customizable pieces. Just because you have little ones running around the house doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful, vibrant sofa or chair in your home.
Our kid-friendly fabrics have a strong weave that holds up against snack time, art projects and playtime making it easier to clean and relieving any worry about life-long sofa stains! And as an added bonus, these Safeguard fabrics come in a rainbow of color options to suit your style.
Since messes are inevitable when living with kids, here’s a quick breakdown of how to clean your kid-friendly fabric…
Remove all the cushions and pillow so you have a clear shot at any and all stains. You may want to lay down some plastic to protect your floors while you work. Once you have, generously spray all the stains with a gentle cleaning solution that can be made with warm water and a small amount of enzyme-based detergent.
Using a sponge or soft brush, scrub the stains to allow the solution to penetrate the fibers, Be sure to scrub from the outside of the stain inwards to avoid any additional spreading.
Rinse the area with water and blot dry with a paper towel. Remember to blot and not rub the area – the idea is to soak up the now loosened stain.
Repeat steps one through three again if there are still remnants of the stains visible.
Let dry completely and you’ll be left with a pristine sofa. That is, until the next round of living room playtime, or a saucy serving of pasta!
