The sofa as epicenter: a story of crumbs, skin flakes and unwanted roommates

For some people, it’s a comfy sofa, for others it may be an old leather chair. Everyone has their favorite place to enjoy precious hours of relaxation or stimulation depending on the book, the movie, the music, the conversation, or the game. You snuggle up in a cozy blanket and a cup of tea or escape the hot summer sun and chill a while. Of course food and drinks play an important role when you spend time with your sofa. You surely enjoy more-or-less healthy snacks that pack a mighty crunch and leave a lot of crumbs! You cuddle with your beloved child, dog or cat. It’s your home’s epicenter for wellbeing!

But let’s look deeper. When was the last time you washed that favorite pillow? You know the one you layed your head on during the Saturday night movie? Can it even be washed? And how about the textile sofa cover: how old is it anyway? And yes, let’s not forget the  cozy blanket! The one that falls on the floor, the one the cat likes, the one that soaked up the last spills during a kids play date. Not to mention the skin particles, which are constantly flaking off your body and into the cracks and crevices of  sofas, blankets, and carpets. These tiny particles of dead skin are invisible to the human eye, but they’re a feast for the omnipresent dust mite.

If this image makes you queasy, it may be time to consider some deep-down cleanliness. The leading manufacturers of home textiles worldwide use the Sanitized® antimicrobial hygiene function. It protects furniture, upholstery, curtains, rugs and carpeting against bacteria, odor and dust mites and keeps them fresh and cleaner. There’s even treated cuddly natural sheep skin.
