Cleaning Out The Recliner

So today is Friday!
Aren't Fridays the best.
The husband is taking me to dinner and to see "Date Night" for our date night.
I pretty much live for date night--
If it weren't for date night I'd almost never get an uninterrupted hot meal.
I needed a quick and easy project for today.

This is my favorite piece of furniture.
It has been with me since the final months of my last pregnancy and is a loyal friend :)
This chair and I have watched A LOT of HGTV together.

I thought you might be surprised to see that I do not need to clean under my recliner.

It's the back that's the problem.
I came across this little mess while looking for the battery to my Tivo remote (my favorite electronic gadget).

Come in for a closer look...

I was so happy to find that binky. It disappeared a few days after I bought it.
And here are a few more little treasures...

That sock's been missing for a while...luckily when I cleaned out the laundry room it's mate was one of the few socks I didn't chuck.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the back has Velcro (one of THE greatest inventions of all time) at the bottom. So I just tore it right open and vacuumed up the mess. Took less than a minute!

(that little white guy is a tag, not more popcorn)

When cleaning upholstered furniture D recommends to:
1. Clean with Vacuum (check!)
2. Clean with upholstery shampoo.
Avoid cleaning too frequently because shampoos tend to dull and fade fabric...
Which is why I didn't shampoo the chair, for fear it might dull and fade the fabric.
