  1. 1

    Spot-clean stains by mixing 237 ml (1 cup) of warm water with a squirt of washing up liquid. Blot the stain with a paper towel, then dip a cloth in the soapy water, wring out and blot the stain. Repeat as needed until the stain has gone.

  2. 2

    Prepare to launder the cover by first removing the padding from the chair cover by unzipping the cover and sliding out the padding.

  3. 3

    Place the chair cover in the washing machine. Wash on a cold water cycle, using your normal washing powder. Using cold water will prevent the colours from fading.

  4. 4

    Remove from the washing machine when the cycle is complete, and lay on a flat surface, allowing the chair cover to air dry.

  5. 5

    Iron the chair cover when dry, if needed, to remove any wrinkles from the fabric. Use a high heat setting.

  6. 6

    Wash the foam chair padding using the same routine, if needed. Do not wash the chair cover and padding together. Allow the padding to air dry, then insert back into the chair cover.
