Slipcovers / Couch Covers

At Upholstery Cape Town, we take great care to manufacture slipcovers that fit couches perfectly, and also add a little extra for shrinkage upon machine washing. Not all types of upholstery fabric is suited for couch covers. The best types of upholstery fabrics to use for slipcovers are 100% cotton, 100% linen, cotton-linen blend, polyester-cotton blend, or a polyester-cotton-linen blend. A great option is also to use a stain-resistant upholstery fabric that doesn’t need to be washed often. 

5 Easy tips to make your couch covers last longer:

  1. Only use machine washable upholstery fabric for your couch covers that are preshrunk.

  2. Spot treat any very dirty places with a washing powder paste made of washing powder and a little warm water. Let it stand a few minutes – DO NOT SCRUB!

  3. Wash the slipcovers in cold water.

  4. Air dry the sofa covers out of direct sunlight until almost dry to the touch and refit on your couch while still slightly damp.

  5. Vacuum couch covers in between washes to keep dust out of the weave.
