Default microfiber review

a couple of years ago we got a futon, long story but it is covered in
microfiber, the cats thus far haven't made any holes in it... so when we
wanted a new computer chair i told DH my only requirement was that it be
microfiber. so far this too has not been claw damaged. it is something
worth looking at if you are considering new furniture. of course now that i
have posted this i am sure one of them will do their best to prove me wrong.

I've never owned any microfiber furniture. I always thought it would
be a cat-hair
magnet. Isn't it hard to clean cat hair off of?

I need a new sofa badly. (Unfortunately, there are always other
priorities)....my cats
don't scratch furniture; they're very good about that. It's the cat
hair that's a problem.
Next new furniture I get, I'm using throw covers that can be tossed in
the washer.

DH as used my new vacum cleaner on it and it does attract a lot of hair but
cleans up easily, Lee

It's actually very easy to get the fur off with the vacuum cleaner...
and it's pretty much claw-proof. My computer chair is microfiber and
while they occasionally stick their claws into it, it's none the worse
for wear after a couple of years - unlike my nice new armchair with
tapestry fabric on it - within a month it was so shredded that I had
to cover the seat for it's own protection! The sofas are much less
appealing to the footfang brigade.

One of the furniture companies that we sell at work has a fabric called
"Kashmira". It has a 5 year warranty against all kinds of accidents:
food, urine, etc. It even is resistant to magic markers. My boss took a
black magic marker to the white sample, and it cleaned up with soap and
water. It is fairly expensive - priced in the same area as leather. Neat
stuff!
