I will be returning this only because I ordered the wrong color. I purchased the same item about five years ago along with two chair covers that all matched. The couch cover was looking a little worn out so I decided to replace it. But I ordered the wrong color. If I get another five years out of this one...its a win / win. You can throw this in the washer and dryer without any problem, take it out of the dryer when it is just slightly damp and you will never have to iron it either :)
The only thing preventing a 5 is the wrinkle problem. The cover arrived creased from the packaging, unsurprising. But even after washing it has wrinkles from the wash cycle- mostly because we have a tiny dryer so easily my fault. However, the only way I can see to get this pristine is to iron, which is a pain! So it looks a little shlubby but lived in.
I bought this to protect a very light cream colored sofa from my black cat. I wanted something to protect the fabric of my sofa that would not look bad to keep daily unless we had a party or something. It was pretty easy to put on and stays in place pretty well. I got the light natural color and it is staying clean. If you are looking for a slip cover to give you a more formal look this is probably not the one, but for a casual look or protectant for a nice sofa it is great for the price.
We bought two of these to put on our couches in a room very rarely used. The couches are floral and old! The natural slip cover works great. I gave it 4 stars because if you look hard enough you can see a shadow of the bright pink flowers but the covers still work great. They look exactly like the picture. I would say if it was going to be on a couch that was used constantly ( especially with kids) this isn't the slip cover for you. The wrinkles did come out easily and we haven't washed it yet but for now it works great.
