Right before purchasing my dual couch loveseat at Wickes, I had been proven a "liquid repellant layer" that would be utilized; and also the item was proven to me on some scrap content (exactly the same meterial which I had been buying) and proved to be an extremely considerable repellant of fluid.
The price was around $150, when I remember; and that I did spend to possess that repellant used.
Many months later i built a glass of water about the furniture and also the fluid was assimilated "as though with a sponge"
I had been acutely sick at that time and wasn't ready to cope with Wickes re: the truth that they clearly hadn't utilized the repellant layer.
Today they're losing sight of company! As a result, there's no method to solve this case. I've no practical option.
It Is no surprise they're going broke
