You may have had something like this happen to you- your grandmother, mother, friend, or loved one gives you a lovely sofa to use for your first place. The sofa had the softest cushions and a very beautiful color; all in all, it was the perfect piece of furniture for a person like you living in your first place. Regardless of how nice it looked, it was old and worn. The upholstery on it was dirty, it stuck up in some places, and there was a weird smell to it that you would notice every now and again. These things tend to stick with you whenever you think back on your first place and first sofa, (regardless of how thankful one may be for the old piece of furniture), fast forward to when you can purchase your own new sofa and the question probably pops up of – how does one keep up the condition of their own couches and upholstery?
