We are eating our words today. Everyone said we would hate a white couch, that it would get dirty and gross really fast. We said "we will wash it, we will be careful." And for the first few weeks, we did and we were. We don't eat on the couch, max wasn't allowed to chew toys on it, and we washed it once a week. Then we started eating on it, being more lax with max and only washed it twice a month. It has gotten gross, and I am over it.
This leads us to this:
We will let you know how it goes!
