The hardest part of keeping furry friends in your home is cleaning up after them, especially when it comes to your furniture. Pet hair, slobber, dirt and more can stain, discolor or even ruin pieces that are expensive or, in the case of antiques, impossible to replace.

Sure Fit, a manufacturer known for its slipcovers, has created a solution called Pet Covers. These covers for sofas, chairs and beds come in a variety of colors, textures and ­fabrics (including soft suede, cotton and corduroy) to make them simple to incorporate into your existing decor. They’re also easy to put on and take off, machine-­washable and durable.

The best part, though, is that they look great and are polished enough to leave on the furniture while entertaining guests. Sure Fit also has travel options, including covers that fit most automobiles.
