Before kids, I had this vision of what my living room would look like. I love white furniture. We bought this really nice sofa that was supposed to be slipcovered and had a nice white slipcover made of cotton duck on it, but of course this is a thing of the past. Now it's covered by a much cheaper loosey-goosey slipcover, but it is all stained. It is made out of white material (I know, , but I just can't stand too much color in my decor), but even if I got darker slipcovers, the size of the covers makes it really hard to wash in my top-loading washing machine. I have to bring it out to the laundromat to put in their big front-loading ones, which is a major chore I don't have time for. I could block off all food and drink from the sofa area, but I've got to be honest with myself and say that's not going to happen. I've been covering most of it with a giant beach towel a lot, but it's soo ugly and there's no way to keep it from keeping it in place. What should I do?
