Slipcover Fabric Care Instructions


Pre washing your slipcover fabric:

If you plan to machine wash your slipcovers I strongly recommend washing and drying your fabric before I come to cut it. That way is already preshrunk and your covers will always fit perfectly.

I suggest you cut a 20”X20”test piece of your fabric first and see how it stands up to washing before washing all of your yardage.

I offer this washing and drying service for $ 4.00 a yard or you can follow the instructions below and do it yourself.

You do not have to pre wash your fabric, but you will have to always dry clean your finished covers to avoid shrinkage.

Slipcover Washing instructions:

  • Cut your fabric into 10 yard pieces
  • Machine wash in cold water on the largest load setting and for the shortest cycle
  • Add ½ cup of white vinegar to prevent fading
  • Add fabric softener if desired

Slipcover Drying instructions 

  • Dry fabric on low setting or drape fabric inside or outside to air dry
  • Some fabrics may also require ironing before being worked on if overly wrinkled
  • Roll fabric back on roll right side facing inward
  • If you do not have a roll , simply roll the fabric without one
