Have to ask, what are your sofas made of? Are they fabric, ;eather, vinyl...please get back to us with the answer.
They are fabric and were from Lazy Boy!
I would take a damp rag and wipe off the drool. If you don't get it too wet it will dry fast. Keep wiping until it's gone. Or use a carpet cleaner and the upholstery tool to clean and rinse.
All my upholstered furniture is covered with throws. I have lots of them. Easy to take off and launder and keep the upholstery clean for guests. When someone is expected, I take the throws off and give them a quick vacuum and spritz of rubbing alcohol. If anyone turns up unannounced, which is most of the time, expect to see the furniture where the pets frequent, covered.
WOW I never thought of rubbing alcohol! Thank you! I too use throws but somehow my lab always gets the arm covers off!
try little round clear plastic topped upholstery pins that screw into the corners of the arm covers -
oh wow another great answer! Thank you!
