Can sofa covers be washed?

What is sofa cover?

A sofa cover or a slip cover is a cover is aprotective cover that can fitted on or off a sofa. These protective covers are generally made from fabric and can beremoved, for cleaning, moving, oreven storing away and removing them tochange them for the different seasons. These are only some of the reasons to why people may want to remove their sofa covers but when you have removed them the next step is to wash them and make sure they are fresh before you put them back on the sofa. 

How to wash a sofa cover:

Each cover is different and may need to be washed differently but before youwash any sofa cover you must have awashing detergent that contains no dyes. This is important because many people have removed their sofa covers to find that they had been stained and dyed by the detergent or even washing pods and that is not the look we are going for. This is why the ideal detergent to use when washing your sofa covers or anything really is a detergent with absolutely no dye. 

When youare washing the sofa covers you must make sure you’rewashing them in cold water or in water that is of a lower temperature, this is because this willminimise and prevent any damage to the sofa covers. Washing your sofa covers can also help toprevent shrinking.  

If you are going todry your sofa covers in a drier, then you should do this on thelowest heat temperature for a short amount of time. If your sofa cover is made up ofsynthetic fibres, then there is possibility that you makedamage or even melt down your sofa covers whilst they are in the drier. On the other hand, if your sofa covers are made fromnatural fibres then they could alsoshrink in the drier. This is why it is extremely important that if you are using the drier to dry your sofa cover that the temperature is low and they are only in there for a short period of time. 

You shouldfit your sofa covers back on to the sofa whilst they are slightly damp and not dry all the way. This is because it is easier to put them on when they are damp so they can begin to dry whilst they are on the sofa. It is also important that no one uses the sofa whilst the covers are still damp,its important to wait until it is fully dry to start using it again
