White sofas are beautiful–not only do they help brighten a room, but they also give off an air of affluence. If you can keep a white couch white, then presumably your pets, kids, and the rest of your family are well mannered and never spill a thing! In reality, no one has that life, but you sure can pretend!
Here’s the secret to great-looking white furniture:
La-Z-Boy’s iClean fabric is easier to clean than other sofa fabrics, it’s even stain resistant. For most spills, you can simply blot out the stain with a paper towel. For more stubborn spots, add some soap and water. This sofa, the Natalie Premier Sofa, comes in endless covers aside from this creamy white color.

If you don’t opt for iClean fabric, there are still ways to manage white furniture. Here are some other tips for dealing with light, bright sofas:
- Vacuum often: Tiny particles—dust included–can turn into a stain, even if you spill water on it. Vacuuming the couch often prohibits this from happening by managing the amount of dirt the fabric collects.
- Always treat stains immediately: There are tried and tested solutions for any kind of stain under the sun with a simple online search, but it can be helpful to start in a small area to see what works best for your fabric. Cleaning immediately helps prohibit fibers from indelibly absorbing the stain
- Think big: Sometimes it can become obvious that you’ve just cleaned one spot on the cushion. Try cleaning a larger area of the cushion so that it blends better. Vacuum the surface of the fabric after it has completely dried to remove any leftover particles or fabric cleaner.
- Resist the plastic cover: It might feel nice to wipe away spills, but plastic sofa covers should remain in old sitcoms, not your living room.
