A washable terry cloth cover for the arms of outdoor patio furniture/chairs comprised of strips of Velcro, a hook and loop fastener, sewn onto the terry cloth cover allowing the covers achieve their objective because the terry cloth wraps around the arm of the furniture forming “sleeve” as it is secured under the arms of the furniture by the Velcro sewn onto the terry cloth, so that it does not slip off the arm of the furniture and, as such, the resulting terry cloth “sleeve” covering the arm of the furniture prevents skin contact with the bare, sun exposed material, often metal, of the furniture, thereby preventing the users skin from being burned.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

Rectangular pieces of terry cloth, seventeen (17) inches in length by six (6) inches in width. Strips of Velcro®, a hook and loop fastener, seventeen (17) inches in length by one (1) inch in width. Thread to sew the strips of Velcro to the terry cloth. One side of the Velcro, the hook side of the hook and loop fastener, is sewn to the top of the piece of terry cloth along its seventeen (17) inch length. The other side of the piece of Velcro, the loop side of the hook and loop fastener, is sewn to the bottom of the opposite seventeen (17) inch side of the terry cloth rectangle. The terry cloth rectangle is wrapped around the arm of the furniture/chairs and the two (2) sides of the Velcro, hook and loop fastener, are connected underneath the arm of the furniture, creating a sleeve, preventing the cloth from slipping off the arm of the furniture/chair. The cloth “sleeve” prevents the arm of the furniture/chair from direct and prolonged exposure to the sun. by preventing direct and prolonged exposure to the sun the cloth sleeves avoid discomfort and potentially dangerous burns caused by overheated exposed arms of outdoor furniture. The dimensions of the cover and Velcro may vary slightly in size based on demand and be identified as an arm towel.

Other means of connecting the two ends of the terry cloth under the arms of the furniture may be used. For example, snaps, buttons, or zippers could be used to secure the two ends of the terry cloth together under the arms of the furniture, creating the “sleeve”, to prevent the cloth from slipping off the furniture arms. Also, the arm covers could be attached to a towel that would also cover the remainder of the piece of furniture.
