to give this sofa to the charity shop?
Iamatotalandutteridiot · 23/08/2015 17:32
OK, there is a good possibility I am!!!
We have a nice sofa (Ligne Roset) - it's quite old but in good condition and very funky.
Last week, our new kitten weed on it (once!) and DH says it has to go...
I've had it professionally cleaned and (As far as I can tell) there is no damage to the sofa, but DH is adamant that it is ruined and has to go...
So... I want to phone a local charity that collects (and resells) unwanted furniture. Dh wants to hire a skip and bin it.
I think he is BU. He thinks I am?
can MN decide please?

If it's clean and in good condition then I'd buy it - half my furniture comes from charity shops and you don't know the history, you just go on how it looks (or smells!).
Slightly off-topic but why would he want you to hire a skip to get rid of a single sofa? Most councils will take large items away if you pay a fee, or you pay a man with a van to do it. No need to hire a whole skip unless you're chucking out loads of stuff!

He wants to get rid of a sofa because a kitten weed on it?? He'd be horrified by our sofa!! One of our cats emptied her anal glands or whatever they're called on it, I spilled an entire cup of warm milk on it, pretty sure both boys have thrown up on it and I gave birth on it (though, to be fair, had a shower curtain under me). Bit of a clean and some bicarb for any lingering smells and it's fine!
