Feature Friday -- Smart Seat Chair Covers

This past fall Becky from Smart Seat Chair Covers contacted me about a awesome new product on the market and asked me if I would be willing to review it on my blog.  As soon as I saw what her product was I said "YES, please let me review it!"  I got it in the mail 3 days later.

It is a seat cover that is stain resistant, waterproof, and washable. Did you catch all of that?   It comes in 3 colors, navy blue, khaki, and black.  Their website shows exactly how to use it on different types of chairs and their customer service is excellant.  It is slightly narrower on one end and has velcro strips so that it can strap on under the seat of your chair.  It is very simple to use and is quite versatile.  I've had this since November and we have put it through the ringer.  It still looks as good today as the day I got it.

This will be perfect for those of you who have real dining room chairs.  We had lovely ones when we first got married, but 10 years later, they are no longer with us.  They've been replaced with the plastic folding chairs from Costco which are so easy to clean, but not even a little bit attractive.  This is how I used it on those chairs.

As you can see, it didn't fit perfectly on there, but it did cover the seat and kept it clean.  What I really loved it for was putting it under our booster seat that straps on to the chair.  We have used this booster seat for all 4 kids and nastiness always collected on the chair underneath it.  I HATED taking it off to scrub the chair, but with this little beauty, I didn't have to.  I just took the booster off, took the seat cover off and shook the hard stuff into the trash and then threw it into the washer.  Perfection!

Just for kicks I also tried it on the back of the chair too.

I also tried it on a chair in my family room.  My puppy likes to curl up on the chair and I didn't want it to get gross.  Again, it didn't fit perfectly because the chair has T cushions, but it covered the important parts.  The dog didn't like it for some reason and wouldn't sit on the chair with it on there.  So I guess it served it's purpose, just in a different way than I was expecting.  :)

I think you should give these a try.  You can order just one to try out before you buy enough for all of your chairs and Becky and everyone else at Smart Seat Chair Covers is so great to work with.  Want to know my favorite part?  She is a stay at home mom who had a good idea and supportive friends.  They ran with it and now they have a good business.  I am much more likely to support "One of our own" than to run out to the nearest store and buy something similar...not that there is anything similar.  I absolutely think this is a great product and worth looking into.
