    Mine is so filthy that I thought I would just throw it away. Thanks for the post. I will wash it first and see if it will clean-up with some Oxyclean.

    I wash mine, but it's getting so old and stained it really looks bad. There's only so much washing can do after a while. One of these days, I'll have to get another one.

    I wash them, put it back on and cover it with a new one. Makes my ironing board more padded.

    Wash & cut up for potholders if it is still useful!

    I tend to use mine till it's discolored and cracked. I've never washed one before. I'll have to try that.

    I was them until they have holes or somehow inhibit the ironing process.

    I'm embarrassed to admit my ironing board and cover were wedding gifts--40 yrs ago!!!!! It was one of those silver heavy duty fabric (Prob had asbestos in it). I loved it cause it reflected the heat nicely. It finally got to the place where it was too stained and ripped around the edges. I searched high and low for a new--they were all light weight cotton with thin lining. I finally found one at Clothilde-it has the lines and measurements on it (which I don't use, not accurate) but it is thick canvas fabric and I kept my old one under it. I just couldn't throw it away LOL>

    Oh JanRN, we can only wonder what else you have kept for 40 years! LOL!
