Jan, we have had ours for 4yrs now, and just use a damp rag on it. We find the couch comfortable, and even more so since I placed a small wedge of wood under the mounting hardware to give the back and seating area a slightly leaned back angle. Since Paula is just 5’ (slightly vertically challenged) I think my next modification will be to lower the height of the mounting cabinet surface (I believe I can lower it approximately 3”) so her feet will be able to touch the ground while seated. We do carry a plastic folding stool to elevate our legs & feet to make it feel more like our “Lazy Boy” chairs at home.
