Thank you for your great review. In all honesty I agree with you about the dust! I believe it has more to do with the outside air from open windows than the fabric couch, etc.
It seems in the winter when windows are closed, the dust is quite normal and maintainable. However once the warmer weather arrives and windows are open, the dust is increased considerably. I find this all over the house, VERY frustrating! So..my solution is tha A/C upstairs and the windows can be kept closed.
I appreciate your feedback! Absolutely closed windows with A/C will help!
Enjoy your cottage, it would be really great to see you again In the fall.
