How do you recover the leg portion of a recliner?
My cat stays at the bottom of the recliner. It has drool stains and the usual wear and tear. Upholstery cleaners have done very little. Any suggestions are appreciated.
It's a Lazyboy, swivel rocking recliner. THANKS

Hi Maggie. I used fusible iron-on tape to recover a chair and it's held up great over the years. You could and a similar fabric and recover the leg portion with this technique. Here's how: https://www.exquisitelyunremarkable.com/2015/07/custom-upholstered-chair-easy-diy.html
I used the same technique to patch a couch: https://www.exquisitelyunremarkable.com/2018/03/how-to-repair-a-torn-sofa.html

My Mom used a face towel and safety pins to fix hers. You wrap the towel around the leg rest and pin it tightly on the under side. Mine is now fixed the same way. And when it gets dirty I wash the towel with my others.
