Outdoor cushion slipcovers – If you let your outdoor pillows at the mercy of the items without doing anything to protect them from rain, wind and snow, they will probably last only a few summers before requiring replacement. Your outdoor cushion slipcovers can last for years instead of months if you pay extra attention when choosing them. Much of the maintenance is to keep them as dry as possible.
So, choose a durable, weather-resistant material when buying your outdoor cushion slipcovers. The traditional cotton cover with urethane foam filler is not the best solution for pads exposed to the elements. More modern fabrics are harder, some are resistant to mold and mildew. Waterproof filler will also help. Materials such as vinyl, polyacrylics and fabrics specially designed for outdoor use may have the appearance of more traditional fabrics, but stand up better for adverse weather conditions.

If you want a more permanent solution, buy vinyl coated to cover your outdoor cushion slipcovers. Remove the filler from the pads first. Create a sealed envelope around the pillowcase with ironing on vinyl. Place cushions with zips or buttons facing down when you use them on your furniture. This minimizes the risk of any water entering the pad through this vulnerable area.
