Sagging, Scratching and Tearing — Oh My! Don’t Let These Common Problems Ruin Your Furniture

September 20, 2016 11:42 am

Whether you recently invested in a brand-new sofa or you've had your furniture for years, everyone wants to keep their furniture in top condition. Here are some smart tips that will prevent sags, tears, and other common furniture issues in your home.

  • Flip your cushions frequently. To keep your cushions from getting too flat, make sure that you flip them frequently. You can use this trick on chairs, sofas, and anything else with a removable cushion.
  • Turn your mattress. Prolong the lifespan of your mattress by flipping it every six months or so. This will help to keep the springs in place and avoid placing weight on the same spot every night.
  • Keep wood furniture away from heat and sunlight. Wood is very durable, but when it comes to sunlight, things can start fading fast. Try to arrange your hardwood furniture so that it's not in the path of direct sunlight, and avoid placing wooden pieces near a heater to prevent warping.
  • Take coasters seriously. You may think of coasters as a bit of an annoyance, but when it comes to preserving the life of your wooden tables, they're actually very important. Keep a few coasters on hand so that your cold beverages don't make rings on wood surfaces.
  • Only use oil soap for wooden furniture. Cleaning your wooden tables and chairs with any old cleaner may damage their surfaces. Instead, always clean these pieces with oil soap diluted with equal parts water.
  • Dust frequently. It may look harmless, but dust can damage the inside of your rugs, sofa cushions, and on top of wooden shelves and tables. Make sure to take cushions outside and give them a good beating to shake out the dust, and frequently dust wooden pieces using a gentle feather duster or an old rag.

September 13, 2016 3:15 pm

A community theater is an important part of any city’s cultural landscape, and locals are lucky to have Theater Arlington presenting entertaining, challenging dramas and musicals throughout the year. The theater was founded in 1973 with its first production, Light Up The Sky, and it's been earning an excellent reputation ever since.

Nine different programs are staged over the course of a year-long season, and regulars rave about the professionalism and attention to detail displayed by the staff. The programming is a mix of crowd-pleasers straight off the Broadway stage mixed with more thought-provoking material, plus a show or two suitable for all ages. Auditions for each show are held publicly, so you might just recognize one of your neighbors up on stage! Theater Arlington also hosts a popular teen and youth drama program once a week.

The venue is spacious with solid sightlines and good acoustics, and ticket prices are very reasonable, especially for matinees.
