- Place heavily soiled cushion covers in a large basin filled with cold water. Add 1 tsp. mild laundry detergent or 1 tsp. pre-wash stain treatment for every gallon of cold water. Let the covers soak for 1 hour.
- Place the covers in your washing machine. Turn on the washing machine and use a cold-water cycle and large load size so that the cushions have room to move in the water. Allow the washing machine to complete its wash cycle.
- Line dry the cushion covers, or dry them using the tumble-dry, no-heat setting on your dryer.
