Does anyone else has a grandma that pretty much people-proofs the entire house? I remember my abuela used to have plastic-covered furniture, but I think she's okay with having people sit on couches now.
Oh! And plastic bed coverings were THE WORSE. When I was a little girl, my mother had bought my sister and I new mattresses, and we were not allowed to take off the plastic coverings. Those 90-degree nights in Florida, on a plastic-covered bed, were a sweaty hell.
But, plastic-covered furniture has its use, right?
Like -- keeping liquids, dirt, and potential stains off. Too bad it keeps people off them, too.

lol this is what slip covers are for! You can take 'em off and wash them
I once had a girlfriend that got those for her spare bedroom so we could live out her dream of being dessert. I wouldn't want to have them always, but I do have a great appreciation for plastic sheets. She was the best treat I have ever had, and I felt so lucky to be part of living out such a wonderful fantasy of delicious lust. Otherwise, I hate cleaning too, but not all short cuts work. Thank God people learned to have garden parties and dinners in very clean garages where a hose can save so many steps to recovery. Excuse me while I spray some ready whip into my mouth and moan.☺
Oh my god, my grandmother used to have plastic all over her couches too. I remember that even the plastic dust covers she used for her couches were super old, so the ends were kind of yellow and broken, and it actually kind of hurt to sit on them. Hahaha, did your abuelita have the 'special room' too? Like the room of the house that no one was allowed to play around in because it was just for show? That could be a my family thing, but I feel like every one of our houses had one.
@Danidee ...yes at one point lol. But that wasn't something that lasted very long lol!
Yeah especially if she's got lots of young grandkids hahaha
