Futons are Heavy

I spend a lot of time on my futon.
Yeah, this. 
So I finally decided it was time to wash my futon cover. All my own.


Anyway, do you know how hard it is to wrest a futon mattress?!?







I did finally manage to get the futon cover off and washed.


But then I realized I had only done the easy part. I still had to put the cover back on the futon.


(Does anyone else know that adorable gif of the kitty that goes “fuck this fuck that, fuck this thing in particular”? Boyfriend and I love it).

Since I was becoming an expert at futons, I now knew what to do.




And then:




Well, that should be good for 6 to 8  months.

  1. I have a gif of a ferret going "Fuck this! fuck that! Fuck everything! FUCK!" as he dances around a couch.

    I much prefer that one.

  2. Depends on how much wine and popcorn you spill on it. How often are your rolling it up and beating it with a stick to keep it puffed up? The FUTON not boyfriend. Sheesh what a mind you have.

  3. You can wash those things? Hmmmm I think I may be responsible for the resurgence of bed bugs...or just a new strain of gross.

  4. I have a blanket over my couch to protect it from cat hair/puke and human food spillage (me.) Even though it's easier to take off than a futon cover, it's still a quarterly endeavor...sigh. This is also why I hate changing my sheets every week. So. Much. Work.

  5. My thought(s) upon reading this - "getting it off not so bad.....putting it back on...that won't go as well" And I may steal "fuck that in particular" and use it as much as possible every day.

  6. Futon cushions are an evil, cruel invention. I've tried to handle them before, and I would not blame anyone for just letting them get filthy and stinky. "Yep, it's gross enough to gag a buzzard. Whaddaya gonna do?"

  7. So, what you are telling me, is there is an adorable kitty gif out there with that most favoritest of phrases on it . . . and you figured you'd just mention it but NOT link to it or show us? Mean, Gia. So mean.

  10. Yup. I hate wrestling fouton mattresses. That's the ONE thing I don't miss about my fouton since my stupid ex-husband took it. It was super comfy and I'm still resentful about it, can you tell? LOL

  11. I like fuck this thing in particular. I'll probably start saying that. I love the f-bomb.

    Love,

  12. OMG... I can barely manage to get the fitted sheet on the mattress. A futon would destroy me!

    Hugs!

  13. Urghhhhh getting futon covers back on is the worst task ever. I have been known to literally sit on the floor and cry whilst doing it x

  14. This is why I hate my king-size bed. The bedroom is small, making the side areas narrow. Then you add in the steps so our ancient Beagle can get on the bed and you have a recipe for disaster! If Hubs wasn't 6'6" I'd gladly trade for a queen size.

  15. That is why God invented febreeze. So you can douse your futon mattress--cover and all--in febreeze and it will totally smell clean for the next 2 years until you need to febreeze it again. That Lysol antibacterial spray works as well....
