My elderly mother-in-law uses Merry Maids. They barely clean at all, and the service charges a fortune. (The workers don't make much at all.)

I would use something like cotton balls to fill in the area where the foam is missing, then neatly cover the torn area with red duct tape. Next, attach velcro to the patched area and fold a throw over the arm. It will stay in place to cover the repair and still be removable for cleaning or changing the look. Ikea always has some really cheap throws.

Maxwell, have you ever discussed how you keep your white felt doors clean? I live in the west village too, and my white window sills collect soot. Will you just replace them as necessary?

Try it with fresh beets - the color is much deeper.
