I give up, it likes these. What do I do about the rest then? This AM PM jute/cotton/wool cushion cover was reduced from ridiculous (i.e anything over 20 quid) to acceptable £15 from Laredoute so I bought it
Too neat and bright and new and stiff, and ostensibly Dry Clean Only , so I turned it inside out (textile hint#1) and washed it anyway. It’s lost intensity, the weave looks a little more battered and it will now work with the genuine antique covers.
DISCLAIMER- I do this a lot. Wash things that aren’t supposed to be laundered.I am not advocating, merely throwing caution to the winds
