Unbeknownst to most folks, it’s easy to put new life into your couch with a foam replacement. Once you have the foam ordered, all you have to do is unzip the zipper that’s on the back of most couch cushions (or cut the stitching around the edges) and slide the old foam pad out. You can then take your newly purchased foam padding and slide it in. Unfortunately, most foam isn’t recyclable. You should read the label to see if it was made from one of the few retailers that do use recycled materials in their foam cushions on the off chance that you’ll be able to toss it into your recycling bin.

As you’re adding the foam to the cushion, you should zip the zipper almost completely closed so that you only have about a fist size to fit into the cushion itself. You can use this smaller hole to push foam into so that when the cushion starts to get full, you’re not posed with the problem of trying to figure out how to zip it all back up again.

If it’s your first time buying couch foam you should first figure out what size cushion it is you need. This is usually printed on a tag on the bottom of the cushions themselves. Sofa foam replacement is relatively easy and just about anyone can do it, but if you’re not comfortable doing it with something like a difficult shaped couch or RV bedding, you could call a local couch repair company  such as www.foamreplacement.com and have them do it for you.
