Chair Cover Care Guide

Caring for Your Chair Covers

After investing in chair covers for your big event, preserving your investment is important. See our handy tips below on how to take care of your chair covers so they continue to spark joy for you and your guests for years to come.



Polyester Chair Covers

Washing

Delicate Cycle and Agitator Free

Always wash polyester chair covers on the delicate or gentle cycle, and use a front-load washer or an agitator-free top-load washer when possible. The chair covers can wrap around the agitator and put extra stress on the fabric (and extra stress on you trying to untangle it from the washer).


Like Colors, Cold Water, Pre-Treat Stains

Wash chair covers of the same color together to protect against the unlikely occurrence of the dye running. Also, wash in cold water, unless there are large greasy food stains. Then, pre-treat with dish soap and wash in warm water.


Dry Cleaning Safe

Dry cleaning is safe for our Polyester Chair Covers.


Drying

Delicate Cycle, Remove When Slightly Damp

Always dry polyester chair covers on the delicate or gentle cycle, then remove them from the dryer when they are still SLIGHTLY damp. This will allow you to more easily iron the chair covers.


Ironing

Polyester chair covers need to be ironed before using in order to create a professional presentation. Here’s the best way to get them crease-free for your big day.


Choose the Right Setting

You’ll need to choose the highest setting your fabric can handle. Polyester chair covers should be ironed on the synthetic-blend setting which is usually a medium heat (100% cotton can handle higher heat while delicates need very low heat).


Test it First

Test the heat setting first on an inside seam to ensure the heat is correct.


Iron on the Reverse Side

To best ensure a fabulous presentation (and reduce the risk of damaging your chair covers), turn the cover inside out and iron on the reverse side of the chair cover in back and forth motions. Avoid circular motions which tend to stretch the fabric. For stubborn creases, wet the area with a spray bottle first or try a garment steamer instead. If wrinkles are stubborn, you can also try steaming to relax the fabric fibers and get the toughest wrinkles out.


Storage

A little TLC when storing your chair covers will reduce your time and effort making them presentable the next time you need to use them.


Hang with Dry-Cleaning Hangers

Use dry-cleaning hangers (the ones with cardboard struts used for pants) to minimize creases. Very gently fold your chair cover in half or into thirds and drape it over the hanger strut. Use one chair cover per hanger.


Folding

If you prefer to fold and stack your chair covers, make sure that they are completely dry before folding to prevent deep creases. Also, if you do fold and stack, you will need to iron them before their next use.



Spandex Chair Covers

Washing

Delicate Cycle and Agitator Free

Always wash spandex chair covers on the delicate or gentle cycle, and use a front-load washer or an agitator-free top-load washer when possible. Chair covers can wrap around the agitator and put extra stress on the fabric (and extra stress on you trying to untangle it from the washer).


Like Colors, Cold Water, Pre-Treat Stains

Wash chair covers of the same color together to protect against the unlikely occurrence of the dye running. Ensure that only spandex chair covers are washed together to avoid snags (i.e., no zippers, no buttons). Also, wash in cold water, unless there are large greasy food stains. Then, pre-treat with dish detergent.


No Dry Cleaning, No Chlorine Bleach

Dry cleaning is NOT safe for our Spandex Chair Covers. Also, chlorine bleach destroys spandex fibers. If you must use bleach, use oxygen-based bleach such as Oxi-Clean or Clorox 2.


Drying

Hang Dry or Dry Flat

Never place spandex chair covers in a hot dryer. The heat can permanently wrinkle or damage the material. Instead, hang your spandex chair covers to drip-dry away from direct heat and sun or dry flat. If quicker drying is necessary, only use a very low temperature on a machine dryer and check the garment frequently.


Avoid Dryer Sheets

Never use fabric softener or dryer sheets with spandex chair covers, as they can leave a residue that will dull the finish and attract bacteria.


Ironing Not Recommended

Your spandex chair cover is wrinkle-resistant, and heat can ruin the spandex fibers. Don’t iron your spandex chair covers.


Storage

A little TLC when storing your chair covers will reduce your time and effort making them presentable the next time you need to use them.


Hang with Dry-Cleaning Hangers

Use dry-cleaning hangers (the ones with cardboard struts used for pants) to minimize creases. Very gently fold your chair cover in half or into thirds and drape it over the hanger strut. Use one chair cover per hanger.

Ensure that only chair covers are washed together to avoid snags (i.e., no zippers, no buttons). Also, wash in cold water, unless there are large greasy food stains. Then, pre-treat with mild dish soap.

Ironing

Satin chair covers need to be ironed before using in order to create a professional presentation. Here’s the best way to get them crease-free for your big day.


Choose the Right Setting

Satin chair covers should be ironed on the low or medium-low setting (100% cotton can handle higher heat while delicates like satin need low heat).


Test it First

Test the heat setting first on an inside seam to ensure the heat is correct.


Iron on the Reverse Side and Use a Pressing Cloth

To best ensure a fabulous presentation (and reduce the risk of damaging your chair covers), turn the cover inside out and iron on the reverse side of the chair cover. Always use a pressing cloth between the iron and the fabric. Use back and forth motions. Avoid circular motions which tend to stretch the fabric.
