    Car Cover Maintenance

    I've been searching the threads and can't kind find the answer I'm looking for. What's the best way to wash a car cover ? It's generally dirty and has cat hair and probably cat piss too on it. My friend is nice enough to let me park it in his garage so I can't do anything about the damn cats. I don't want to mess it up washing it improperly. What do you all recommend ?

    Take it down to your local laundromat. They're unually alittle larger so they work great for this.........Wash as you would normal clothes. No harm done.

    I hear some people on other forums say just to leave the cover on the car and wash the cover just has you would your car, then take off and hang up to dry...? I have that silver covered firehawk o/e cover and want to wash mine too...

    It does depend on the cover. Take it to the laundry mat and wash it but use car soap I use Zaino's. Do not use any fabric softner and make sure there is none left in the softner cup. You will not dry it in a dryer!!!! Some say to then put it back on the car to dry, but I prefer to just stretch it out in my spare bedroom to dry before putting it back on the car. If it is not dry rotted it will withstand a washing no problem. If it falls apart, it probably need to be replaced anyway.
