100% Waterproof Mambe Furniture Cover for Pets and People

Looking for a cover for your bed, sofa, or a dog bed to help with life's little spills?

For kids, clumsy adults, or pets with issues, you kind of want something other than putting plastic on all of your furniture to keep stains and stink off of expensive things, so what do you buy?

We've had great success with the Mambe Furniture covers.  Mambe has a full line of different blankets and covers that can be used to cover beds, couches, or dog beds that are stylish, liquid-proof, and don't make your furniture look dreadful.

Some liquid-proof covers have plastic innards that crackly and aren't comfortable.  They also tend to slip around the outer soft blanket and end up all crumpled up and just plain stupid.

The Mambe doesn't crinkle, slide around, or get plain stupid.  Its like a normal blanket.

Machine washable and you can throw it in the dryer as well.  Easy to clean, easy to use, nice to look at.

From experience, unless you have an industrial sized washer and dryer, you should avoid the King size blankets.  They are rather HUGE and take forever to dry.

Mambe blankets are made in the USA and guaranteed for life.

Comfortable, stylish, liquid-proof, easy to wash and dry.  We've had three of the Twin/Loveseat size for years and they show absolutely no wear or tear.  Well worth the price.

Available on Amazon and from the Mambe site.

Highly recommend

Serta Orthopedic Dog Beds

If you are like me, you've purchased about a zillion dog beds.  If your dogs are like my dogs, they've probably hated most of them.

From the cheap, to the extremely expensive, there's just something wrong with them (according to your dog) and they end up thrown in a back room or tossed out.  Money down the drain.

There has been only one dog bed that has lasted about 10 years in our house and hasn't lost it's comfort level, is easy to clean, and the dogs fight over it... so now I have three of them.

The Serta Orthopedic Dog Beds have been nothing short of the PERFECT dog beds in our house.

  • The cover is removable and machine washable.
  • The foam is very supporting and comfortable (I've even slept on the X-Large when one of our dogs was very sick)
  • The large size will fit a 60lb Siberian Husky.  The X-Large will also fit a 60lb Siberian Husky stretched out to full length, and a 5' 6", 130lb human
  • The Pillow top is very comfortable and allows the foam to breathe
  • If you follow the washing instructions, it won't shrink.  If you don't follow the drying instructions and throw it in the dryer on low, it'll dry faster and still won't shrink (just sayin).
Even after all of these years of hard sleeping by very dedicated sleeping huskies, the foam hasn't developed the usual squished down look, its as springy and supportive as the day we bought them.

The beds provide good support for orthopedic issues or creaky old dog issues.  You can even cover them with incontinence blankets or pads for dogs with leak issues.  The padding is thick enough to keep a rather large amount of urine from absorbing into the pad if caught early.

Serta has a wide variety of their orthopedic beds, even some that look like a couch.  They are available from a wide range of places, even Amazon.

My dogs HIGHLY recommend these beds!
