Ok.... just in case some wingnut out there sees this and is thinking "Wow. What a great idea".... please do not have your dog groomed at the laundromat.

I removed mine the other day and was shocked to find dust on the car. I even vacuumed it off first. Thought about washing it, but worried about it shrinking. Mine is the soft stretchy with the fleece liner. It fits very snug on my car now, so hope it won't shrink when I wash it.

I'm just folding mine up after washing its stretchy and fleece inner lined. Cold water wash and a bit of liquid soap and air dried all over the living room. The wife wasn't impressed lol Also 2nd time washed.

dry clean
Are you kidding?😳 The purpose of the cover is to just minimize the adverse effects during storage. Little dust I don’t think will hurt. 🥂😷

When washing a car cover, you can either do it by hand or in a washing machine. However, since different fabrics require different care techniques, check the cleaning instruction sheet that came with your cover before washing it.

I was wondering if car covers are typically machine washable. I can’t find a tag on mine to indicate this, but I assume they are. I wanted to make sure by checking with you fine folks.
Thanks.
I have been front-load machine washing my GM indoor covers at least once per year now.
