Removable and washable sofa covers - how does it work?

Removable and washable sofa covers

Many know the problem, the sofa covers look scruffy, but removing the stains by hand is often too tedious and time-consuming.

With our removable and washable sofa covers from Livom, this is now a thing of the past.

No matter whether your children have secretly wiped their chocolate fingers on the backrest, your cat loves to sleep on the sofa or your partner is a strong allergy sufferer.

The Livom sofa- perfect for children's and teenager's room

The Livom sofas are perfect for the children's room. We offer different colors and modules that can be integrated into the children's room according to your wishes. Many of our sofas offer a sleep function, so that even spontaneous overnight guests can sleep comfortably.

The sofa cushions can be removed without much effort, maybe the sofa will soon become a knight's castle, robber's den or a trampoline? There are no limits to your child's creativity. And if something goes wrong, the covers can be completely removed and washed thanks to a simple Velcro system. Children from a young age can help you with this. This promotes independence.
The next adventure won't be long in coming.

Washable sofa covers

But our sofas also make a good impression in the teenager's room. Through simple design, they enhance the space of your teen without taking up too much space. Here, too, we can say: overnight guests, welcome. With a few simple steps, the sofa becomes a comfortable place to sleep.

Has your child's favorite color changed? Then simply buy matching covers in the new favorite color. You don't have to burden the environment (and your wallet) unnecessarily and save yourself the effort of buying a complete new sofa.

The wood we use for our sofas is FSC certified and is grown sustainably.

Our fabrics are OEKO-Tex Standard 100 certified, which means that there are no carcinogenic dyes in our textiles.

Washable covers - perfect for allergy sufferers

People with allergies don't have it easy. Constant sneezing, coughing and watery eyes interfere with a pleasant get-together with friends. On top of that, it saps your strength and quickly leads to tiredness and fatigue.

You can counteract this with our washable sofa covers. Dust mites and pollen are washed out of the covers in no time and the evening can begin.

Are you looking for an allergy-friendly sofa bed? Restful sleep is extremely important. If we don't sleep enough, it affects the entire body. Heart rate and blood pressure increase, good mood decreases. In addition, our long-term memory deteriorates and our attention span decreases. We perform tasks more unreliably and inaccurately.

For a restful sleep for allergy sufferers, we recommend washing the covers once or twice a week. That way, allergies won't get in your way.

Best suited for animal lovers

Has your cat sharpened its claws on the back of the sofa instead of the scratching post? Does your dog first jump into puddles and then onto your favorite sofa cushion? Does your budgie prefer to eat the grains from your hand while you read a book?

Animals make dirt, that's no secret. However, conventional sofas are not so easy to clean. People spend hours trying to remove the stains with home remedies and chemical bombs from the drugstore, often without success. Many pet owners then buy cheaper sofas and as soon as the pet has had a good romp on them, a new one. This is bad for the bank account and for the ecological footprint. The average German produces 200 kg of CO₂ per year just by buying textiles. It would be nice if we could reduce this figure.

Did your cat mistake the sofa cushion for a mouse and bite holes in it? Then order the exact cover you need and help reduce CO₂ emissions without sacrificing a stylish home.

Interest in replaceable and washable sofa covers is increasing

More and more people are interested in sustainability. They are aware of the environment and are fed up with the throwaway society. Not long ago, people used disposable lint rollers to remove pet hair from the sofa. The eco-balance of the rollers is poor. The plastic is rarely made from recycled materials, the glue is not vegan and full of pollutants. 



Our sofa covers can be removed in no time and washed in any conventional machine. You can use any detergent that you like. So you know exactly what will be on the textile later. So there is no doubt whether there are harmful substances in the textile.


What are the references and how do they differ?

We offer you three different types of fabric: Vellare, Mollia and cotton.

The Vellare fabric offers you the advantage of being extremely durable. It is tightly woven so that hair from people and animals stays on the surface and does not penetrate the fabric. Safety bonus: The fabric is flame retardant, giving you, your family and friends extra safety.

Our Mollia fabrics are soft and rather velvety. Because the fabric is line woven, many stains can be cleaned with just a damp rag or household cloth. This fabric also declares war on annoying hair. Due to the tight weave, hairs find their way only with difficulty and remain on the surface. Also claws or teeth have no chance with the Mollia fabric.

We also offer you sofa covers made of cotton. You already know how cotton feels against your skin. The fashion industry has been fond of this durable fabric for centuries. Cotton is easy to clean, absorbs odors of your favorite detergent for a long time and is also flame retardant. And this fabric is also suitable for your household with animals.

Tips for the care of removable sofa covers

Our sofa covers are very robust, you can not do much wrong. But so that you have something from our products as long as possible, we have a few tips for you:

The right washing machine program

If the cover is only slightly dirty, you can wash it at 20-30 degrees with a clear conscience. Light stains such as yogurt or dust can be easily removed at 20 degrees and the material is not overstressed. If the fabric is very dirty, you can wash it at 30 degrees. This kills almost all bacteria and thus ensures a little extra cleanliness in your home.

If the fabric only smells unpleasant, for example after smoking a cigarette, then it can be washed at 20 degrees. This program is also recommended so as not to pollute the environment unnecessarily.

How often should I wash the covers?

This is entirely at your discretion. For allergy sufferers, it is recommended to wash the covers once a week. Also, if you have people with sensitive immune systems in your household, you can wash the covers more often to avoid unnecessary risks.
