Cleaning & Care for Indoor Covers
We've investigated which cleaning method to suggest to our customers for the CoverMates™ dish cover and appliance cover products. Both the dish covers and appliance covers are made from 2 layers of 100% cotton fabric or polyester and quilted together with a third layer of polyester fiber fill between them. Please use the cleaning and care information below to help determine the best method.
CoverMates™ 100% Cotton Canvas
We recommend spot cleaning the cotton dish covers when needed, beginning with a damp cloth and working in a mild detergent if the stain is not removed with ease. Please spot clean as soon as the stain is noticed and before it is set.
Although our 100% cotton fabric is washable, we DO NOT recommend hand washing or machine washing any of the cotton styles because they will shrink. Submersion of the product into water will cause the cotton fabric to shrink. We've tested the cleaning method by washing the dish covers in both hot and cold water in normal cycles. We determined the material shrinks not in the drying cycle, but in the wash, and in all temperatures of water whether machine washed or hand washed.
CoverMates™ Polyester Covers
The polyester covers can be spot cleaned or machine washed and dried. Polyester will not shrink when machine washed, but we do recommend using the gentle cycle and not overdrying it. The appliance covers can also be ironed to remove wrinkling.
