How to clean car covers

car coversHowever, the things you are protecting your car from can harm the cover itself. If you want to protect it you need to clean it. If you do this frequently it shall keep it looking great. In addition, this will help you sustain it so it can carry on doing its job properly.

Essentially, there are two options available to you when it comes to cleaning. These are by hand or using a washing machine. The approach you go for depends on the cover you have, at least partly. Because this is the case, you must read the cover’s instructions carefully.

By hand

You should begin here by pulling the cover over your vehicle. Stretch it tight too. Using a hose, spray it. Then, scrub the cover using a mild detergent and sponge. Next, use the hose to rinse it and remove the cover from the car. Finally, hang it to dry.


Here you must ensure your cover is a machine-washable one first. Once you have done this, you need to use a commercial, front-loading washer. A domestic model won’t be able to do the job correctly. After the wash, make sure you hang the cover to dry, ensuring it hangs properly to maintain the shape.
