Furniture That Can Handle March Break

March break is almost here and, for some of us, that means the kids will be home playing games, running around, and maybe (just maybe) spilling things.


The question is: “Can your furniture handle the chaos?”


You want durable furniture that cleans up in a snap. Here are some expert tips on what to keep in mind, when selecting furniture for your home.


Easy-to-Clean Fabrics

Performance Fabric selections

One of the most frequently asked questions we hear from our customers is, “Is this fabric easy to clean?” We know that you want your furniture to look good for as long as possible and that is why we offer a huge range of durable fabrics.


Microfibre is a very durable and stain-resistant material. Constructed from synthetic material and woven with a very tight weave, microfibre makes it difficult for stains to soak in and set, while the tight weave makes it hard for holes to get poked into the fabric.


Leather is another extremely durable material. Leather, like microfibre, can be wiped down and cleaned in a few seconds. Different types of leather are available and some can be enhanced with protective coatings for extra durability.


If microfibre and leather aren’t for you, Smitty’s has a huge variety of different fabrics that are

stain-resistant, durable, and easy-to-clean. Some options are also liquid-repelling and most are safe for children, since they are protected without chemicals.



Zucora fabric cleaner



























Zucora, located in London, Ontario, has been helping families live more comfortably since 1979. A manufacturer of natural, toxin-free household cleaning and personal care products, Zucora has everything you need to care for your furniture.
