Cleaning or Replacing a Zipper on a Throw Pillow Cover: Simple Steps for Maintenance
Cleaning or replacing a zipper on a throw pillow cover is a straightforward process that ensures the longevity and functionality of your cover. Follow these steps to clean or replace a zipper effectively:
1. Cleaning a Zipper:
- Start by gently brushing away any visible dirt or debris from the zipper teeth and surrounding area.
- Use a mild detergent or fabric cleaner and a soft brush to clean the zipper. Gently scrub the zipper teeth and fabric around it to remove any stains or grime.
- Rinse the zipper thoroughly with clean water to remove any residue from the cleaning solution.
- Dry the zipper completely before zipping it back up. Ensure that there is no moisture trapped in the zipper or fabric, as this could lead to mildew or damage.
2. Replacing a Zipper:
- Carefully remove the old zipper from the throw pillow cover. Use a seam ripper or small scissors to cut the threads holding the zipper in place.
- Measure the length of the zipper opening on the cover. Purchase a replacement zipper that matches the length and type (e.g., metal or plastic) of the original zipper.
- Align the replacement zipper along the opening of the cover. Pin or clip it in place, ensuring that the teeth are facing inward and the zipper pull is positioned correctly.
- Sew the new zipper onto the cover using a sewing machine or hand stitching. Start at one end and sew along the edge, removing pins or clips as you go. Double-check that the zipper moves smoothly before finishing the stitching.
- Trim any excess thread and test the zipper to ensure it opens and closes smoothly.
By following these steps, you can effectively clean or replace a zipper on a throw pillow cover. Regular maintenance helps preserve the functionality and appearance of your covers, ensuring they remain in excellent condition for longer periods.
