Oh, IKEA, why do I let you treat me this way? When will I learn not to trust you?
I have a sofa with a slipcover. A washable slipcover. Just throw it in the machine and presto! Clean couch. Except that the little wee tag on the side of it informs me it cannot be tumble dried. How many people, exactly, have the space to hang dry a slipcover and seven cushion covers? More to the point, where in my apartment am I supposed to find the room?
