Anyhow, this couch has served us very faithfully. We knew we needed a bigger couch, but back then it was just the 6 of us--good thing we went REALLY big, because we still all fit on there, with room to spare!
But this poor, faithful couch was starting to look a bit . . grimy. Too many dirty hands and feet have been on it, and too many babies have spit up after nursing on it! Over the past 10 years, we've spot-cleaned, but it was clear something more drastic needed to happen. Actually, Bob has pushed for the most drastic step of all--getting a new couch--but I think we should wait a few more years, until the littlest mess-makers are older. Why ruin a new couch?!
So Bob called Chem-Dry, and they came out and cleaned our couch this morning. That meant that last night, we had to take it apart and clean under it. The last time we took it apart was almost 4 years ago, when we got new carpet in the family room, back when we thought we were PCSing to Guam and would have to sell. There was quite a treasure trove under there this time!
Chem-Dry did an excellent job, and the couch looks a good 10 years younger! Maybe it will last until the younger kid is 5 or so after all!
