It’s summer now, and I see many beautiful home magazines with easy, breezy coastal living rooms that employ white sofa slipcovers. The articles assure me that bleaching the slipcovers is easy when they get dirty. How easy is this? And where is a good place to buy nice-looking yet affordable ones? (Custom-made would be way out of my budget.)
I use only non-chlorine bleach. Some laundry detergents have non-chlorine bleach as part of their formula, or you can buy something such as Clorox2 and add it to your cycle. I like the Tide pods for tough stains because they have detergent, stain remover and brightener in them. They would be great on white slipcovers. I know what you mean, that you don’t want to get custom slipcovers, but they really would be the best look for your sofa, unless you can contact the manufacturer and see whether they sell slipcovers to fit your particular style. I know Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams offers this service. Otherwise, there are Sure-Fit white slipcovers, and sometimes you can find them at Wal-Mart and/or Overstock.com.
