What To Do When Your Child Draws All Over Your Couch…

You don’t panic….at least if you have white slipcovers, that is! :)

Sorry for the horrible pictures, I snapped them late at night before I tossed them in the wash…

Um…yeah, this was done with a ballpoint pen. And Evy might as well enter it into some sort of art contest as it’s pretty amazing don’t you think? I mean, look at the details!

Wow, these are right up Degas and Piccaso, don’t you think? ha. Oh boy.

So I’m not going to lie. I totally panicked. Especially since I had just wrote this huge post about how wonderful my couches were and that you could get anything out. To be honest, I was a little stressed I wouldn’t be able to get it out. It just overtook my cushions!!

BUT, I did what I normally do and sprayed it down with oxyclean, then added the max amount of bleach and then put it washer on the presoak option and let it soak for 30 mins. The first try got it almost out, but it was still faintly there, so I repeated it again. The second try did the trick….

As good as new! I promise you, you can’t even see one bit of it!!

So if I wasn’t sold already on white slipcovers {which you all know I was}…I am REALLY sold on it now. REALLY, REALLY!

So what in the world are you guys waiting for? Get on the white slipcover band wagon!! :) For more on my slipcovers click HERE.

    This happened to me when my little boy was about 3. Bless their hearts, it’s just asking to be drawn on, you know? Funny you speak of exactly what I referenced in Anna & Co.’s Mother’s Day tribute. I’m glad it worked out for you.

    Hey Amy. I just found your blog by blog surfing and was amazed at your clothing line. Good work.
    Just one little word of advice. Did you know that it’s highly discouraged to mix bleach and oxiclean? The two can neutralize each other and cauce toxic fumes. Please read up on this. Don’t want any accidents.

    Thanks for demonstrating for me (so I can show my husband) why white couches are essential for us now w/3 boys in the family.
