Air Drying the Space-Saver Way

We recently purchased a couch from Ikea. We love our couch because the cushion covers are removable and machine washable. They are not, however, machine dry-able. They have to air dry or they'll shrink. About once a month, I unzip all the cushion covers, take them off the pillows, rezip them, and wash them. There are eleven, which makes it difficult to find a place to let them all air dry. I took plastic hangers and zipped all but the hook inside the cushion cover and hung them up on my shower curtain rod. There's plenty of room for them to each air-dry, and I get sparkling clean couch cushion covers (at least for a few minutes till my sticky-fingered toddler gets anywhere near them...). Happy drying!!!
