As a mother of three, Molly Sims has learned the tricks of the trade when it comes to shielding against messes.

The author of Everyday Chic: My Secrets for Entertaining, Organizing, and Decorating at Home — Sims’ second book — reveals to PEOPLE in this week’s issue that she has a unique way of preserving her furniture.

“There really is outdoor fabric on all my indoor sofas and cushions because I’ve got to tell you, there’s a smoothie, there’s formula, there’s a dog, there’s a child vomiting at all times,” explains Sims, 44, who is mom to Grey Douglas, 9 months, Scarlett May, 2½, and Brooks Alan, 5.

“I’m a little OCD because of having so many kids in such a short amount of time, and living out of suitcases for 15 to 17 years makes you neat.”
