Car Cover Care
#1
   
When cleaning your car cover, please avoid detergents and heat as they can deteriorate the cover’s water resistance or cause melting. A simple way to clean your cover is on your car—just hose it off and leave it on your car to let it dry. To clean the inside, just turn the cover inside-out and do the same hose/air dry treatment. If you prefer to use a washing machine, a home washer is NOT large enough to accommodate your cover. We recommend using a large commercial washer with no agitator. Only use Woolite or 1/4 cup Fantastic All-Purpose cleaner, and use the Normal or Permanent Press cycle with cold or warm water only. We also recommend two rinse cycles to insure all of the cleaner is removed. And DO NOT use the dryer, just let the cover air dry.

Thanks for posting, I need to clean my car cover. While my 73 was in the body shop they put the car cover in a corner and some mouse had her babies in it. The mouse did not chew it up, but it still smells after hosing it off. I will try the washing machine next.

I washed my cover yesterday in our home washing machine. It is a heavy duty Maytag and handled it well. The cover turned out great, no odor and no spots.

Did you use Woolite or Fantastic?
