    I do wash my cover when it's soiled but once it's really wearing I toss it and make another one. I have a larger than normal ironing board and the replacement covers are pretty pricey so I just make a new one..I use batting for the cushion underneath. Works fine for me.

    Oxyclean is a wonderful product.

    Same here!

    When I buy a new cover, I pin a double layer of white flannel across the the board where I do most of the ironing, and when that is pretty well soiled I remove it and replace it with a new flannel cover. I've had my new cover on the board for a couple of years and have no discoloring at all. :-)

    I wash them at least once, after that I replace them.

    I have several that I have made from pieces of home dec fabric which is a little heavier. This way I can have one on the board, one in the wash and one to spare.
