Hi. I want to buy a couch that is easy to clean/get rid of dustmites. My daughter and I might have a dustmite allergy.
But, either way, I love the idea of a couch that is super easy to clean.
I don't want pleather because I've been reading about the toxicity of such materials.
I'd rather not have leather because we eat a vegan diet and I when I really think about it, I'm pretty sure that would make my family uncomfortable. Although I have not completey ruled it out.
I was thinking about a wicker couch with machine washable cushions, but then I read that wicker is a dust magnet.
I don't want to use a plastic cover like Marie of Everybody Loves Raymond.
I'm about to buy a bunch of machine washable floor cushions, which my family may actually go for, but would make some guests rather uncomfortable.
Is wicker really that bad for a dustmite allergy?
Is there some sort of dustmite resistant sofa material out there that I don't know about? Please tell me there is. :)
