It's not so much what gets on it as what comes off. Everything.

 Furniture from The Livable Home is extremely easy to clean. Ever have a chenille sofa? One that you needed to tackle with the vacuum until you pulled a muscle fighting to get it clean? Well, that's not the case with our fabrics.

                          Here are our suggestions for cleaning a TLH piece:

  • Do vacuum weekly.
  • Flip the seat cushions and back cushions regularly.
  • For spots or dirt stains that are new, don't panic. (We have found this doesn't work.) If you let it dry, you can usually vacuum the spot or dirt and don't have to do anything else.
  • For "stubborn" or set stains, again, don't panic. We use gentle detergents, (either laundry or dish) with warm water and a clean cloth rag to spot clean.
  • You can also use gentle color safe bleach with lukewarm water to wipe spots and dirt away.
  • If you are a clean freak like some of us here at TLH, vacuuming and wiping the piece down weekly won't be a problem. Not only will the fabric will hold up to this cleaning, but it will maintain that new look even longer.
