Car Cover Washer Safe?

Hey guys,
I was just wondering if the car cover that you can order with the Camaro is washer safe? I got some brake dust on mine, and its really bugging me. If it is, it won't shrink will it? Thanks!

I recently took a Covercraft to a local Dry Cleaner; gave the owner(?) the cleaning instructions from CCs website. The Yo-yo used too high heat and shrunk it and it even burned in a few places. I haven't been back to confront
him about it yet. Maybe better to wash it by hand and a brush and hang it
over a fence to dry.

you can usually wash car covers in washing machines without an agitator (the kind that tumble). i used to have to go to a laundromat and use the big ones there... but now we have a big tumble style (don't know the correct term sorry) and i can wash 'em at home.

if you don't wanna do that, you can either try washing it in a bathtub (but that's messy when it's time to take it out) or drape it over something outside (like a fence) and use a hose and some laundry detergent.

i do always air dry mine. helps protect the elastic and the material from breaking down. i usualyl drape it outside over a couple of chairs.

Selena, It's called a front load vice a top load. We all understood you though.
Thanks for the info.
