What kind of sofa does not stain?
Sofas that are upholstered in synthetic fibers such as acrylic, nylon, olefin, polyester, and rayon tend to be the most stain resistant. Synthetic fibers repel liquids, while natural fibers soak up spills quickly. Though not synthetic, wool is also great as a stain resistant material.
What sofa material is the most stain resistant?
Wool is arguably the most stain resistant material for sofas. Wool naturally contains lanolin, an oil that repels liquids. However, thanks to technology, synthetic fibers come in a close second place.
As with anything in life, it is important to read your new couch’s care instructions before plopping down with a glass of your favorite red wine. Each sofa may have different recommended methods for spot cleaning stains. Be sure to follow the recommended method, so as to not void your new couch’s warranty (if applicable).
To keep your new stain resistant sofa looking its best, be sure to regularly vacuum crevices and under cushions, fluff your cushions and pillows, and spot clean messes per manufacturer recommendation. Ideally, your sofa will be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent fading.
