The Couch Wipe

We have off-white (or beige) couches.  They are the typical IKEA couches, and we have slipcovers over them so we can remove them and wash (a smart investment when you have canine companions!).  Brandon often snacks while sitting on the couches.  What does this have to do with the couches or this post?

My dear Brandon tends to wipe his dirty, snacky hands on the back or arms of the couch.  He'll try to do this nonchalantly, thinking I'm not noticing.  But I notice every time.  The action goes something like this:

  • hand in bag of snack
  • snack to mouth
  • repeat (perhaps up to 3 times)
  • hand swiftly swings to back of couch with a quick wiping action and an immediate return of hand back into the snack bag
Yes, we have slipcovers so we can wash them.  But that doesn't mean I want snack crumbs/grease on them in between washings.  Plus they totally suck to get on and off.

Brandon- stop wiping your dirty snacky hands on our couches!!
