Loose Covers Easy Care Guide

Keep the Showroom finish for years and years.

Following the simple instructions in this care guide will help you to keep your covers looking as good as new for many years to come. This guide will cover- Stretch (Easifit) and Woven loose covers (Designer & Traditional).

 

Care Instructions

  • Washing your covers regularly will help maintain that showroom look and restore the natural 'give' built into the fabric to help maintain their beautiful fit.
  • Decra & Easifit covers are guaranteed non-shrink and colour fast. Always refer to washing label sewn inside the covers.
  • There is no need to iron your Decra & Easifit Made-to-Measure covers.
  • Loose cushion covers should be rotated regularly to give even wear.
  • Plump up your feather and soft back and seat cushions regularly.
  • Refitting after washing is easy. They will have recovered their original shape and will respond to firm handling.
  • Try to position your furniture away from direct sunlight to minimise fading.
 

Washing Instructions

  • Please check the label sewn into your covers for cleaning instructions.
  • Many of our fabrics can be machine washed or hand washed at the same temperature - 30ºC. (Decra covers can be washed at 40ºC).
  • All components of the cover should be washed at the same time using a non-colour enhancing liquid detergent.
  • Lightly spin or line dry.
  • DO NOT tumble dry.
 

Re-fit your covers in 4 easy steps

ISO2360AVCORAPECONTStep 1:

Remove all loose cushions.  Open the zip at the base.  Start at the back of the furniture and pull firmly over.  Locate the label at the back of your new covers and pull over the top of the furniture until the covers fit snugly over the top edge. (Note: Decra Covers do not have a zip)  

 

ISO2360CVCORAPECONTStep 2:

Continue the process over the arms and the seat base, tucking in firmly where appropriate between the back and seat base, and arm and seat base. Ensure that any piped edges are positioned correctly on the arm scrolls.

 

 

Step 3:ISO2342BVCORAPPLAT

Pull down and smooth the front, sides and back and ensure the valance is straight and at floor level. At this point close the zip on the outer edge of Covers.

 

 

Step 4:ISO2360DVCORAPECONT

Pull on any separate cushion covers, again ensuring that any piped edges are straight.  Replace the cushions.

Care Instructions

  • Vacuum your Covers regularly using a brush attachment, as accumulated dirt will accelerate fabric wear.
  • Traditional and Designer covers can be cool ironed if necessary.
  • Plump up your feather and soft back and seat cushions regularly.
  • Regular re-dressing of the covers will be required to maintain appearance. This includes the straightening of the seams on your covers. Any excess fabric should be tucked into the pockets between the arm/back and seat. Valances may need to pulled down into position.
  • Try to position your furniture away from direct sunlight to minimise fading.
  • Clean accidental spills as soon as possible. When spot cleaning, test in a small area which isn’t visible.
  • Note on Chenille and Velvet fabrics – the pile will flatten with use. This may result in a ‘shaded’ area on contact areas but this is normal for this type of fabric.  Vacuum using a brush attachment to reduce flattening.
