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.
