We have cats and, unfortunately, love them very much. We keep their nails clipped and have lots of scratching posts, but they still sink their little claws into everything. Are there fabrics, either for rugs or couches, that you've found work better with cat claws? I was told that things like microsuede provide less purchase for their little pointy claws -- is this true? What fabrics should we avoid?

Wizards of Hive,
Before I buy that 90" couch from a friend, how can I make sure I'll be able to get it up my L-shaped stairs? Sure, there are a lot of variables. But is there a tool or methodology for figuring this out ahead of time (presuming I know the depth and height of the couch too)? I don't think I have the cardboard to build a mockup.
This couch is 50 miles away and can't be returned. Thanks!

One of the rubber-band
cushion supports broke on my Mid Century Modern couch.
I would ideally replace all of the bands, since they are all showing signs of their 50-60 years of use. I was hoping someone would have some magical source for replacement parts.

I would like to take the big, corner desk out of my office and instead have a couch, along with a laptop table
that I can use as needed. Or maybe a small stand-up desk off to the side. I am wondering what the outside perception might be, as well as any potential problems I may not have considered. [more inside]

I’m trying to think of a way to make one part of my side of the bed more like the back of a couch. But I’m not very creative, apparently. Can you help me please? [more inside]

How can I clean liquid bubble bath out of the fabric couch cushions? The care tag says NOT to wash/launder the fabric cover as it will shrink and no longer fit the foam interior. [more inside]
