janet metzger - Have looked all over for "white" painters drop cloth to use as slipcovers and can't find them. Where did you find it? Great slipcover on chair. Did you have a pattern?
Thanks

Thanks! I wash my drop cloths about three times in hot water and bleach. They don't get white..white, but much lighter and softer than when I unwrapped them.
