Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gayl This product is not mildew resistant.
I bought these to make curtains for our pergola. We live in a hot humid state. The curtains were perfect for keeping leaves and rain out of the pergola. Week three they were covered in mildew. I had to take them down and bleach them. Next I had to find a mildew resistant solution to spray on them before I could try to hang them again. I liked this product for the price but if you need mildew resistant better spend more and get that. Price is good but if you need mildew resistant plan to pretreat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by redux121 Great product
I used these drop cloths to make drapes. The 6 x 9 ft. size was perfect for the large windows in the room. The color and texture were very similar to linen, though the drop cloths were substantial enough to hold up to fabric paint. The polyester content resulted in minimal shrinkage when the drop cloths were washed and dried prior to sewing them into drapery panels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tamara These drop cloths are my large economical DIY no sew curtains!
We needed curtains for staging our home for sale and that meant I wanted to spend- next to nothing. A quick internet search for alternative materials led me to painter drop cloths. I really liked what I was seeing - they looked like linen, had a nice natural color, and some adventurous DIY'ers have even painted them with stripes or chevron.
This two pack of drop cloths is a great solution for my unusual sized windows and desire to use curtains as a headboard - for less! After getting them from the pickup desk I dashed home. I washed them three times to make them softer, dried with tons of fabric softener, and broke out the iron. I folded the extra fabric to the wrong side to make the height I needed, attached clip curtain rings, and hung them on 5/8" rods.
Easy and economical plus looks great! No one suspects I spent approx. $6 per panel on custom height linen looking curtains.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by charleyboy Useful, but does not fully protect floors from paint drips.
The canvas is not impervious to latex paint drips. Even dime-size drips color whatever is beneath. In the future I will use the canvas on top of thin plastic sheeting as I prefer to walk on the canvas instead of plastic. After my paint job, I will find other uses for the canvas in the garage or as a ground cloth at outdoor music concerts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chicagirl Great for sofa throws!
I purchased these to make sofa throws for 2 piece sectional sofa. There are NO seams down the middle of these. I bleached them in the washer twice and let them soak overnight in the 2nd bleaching. I rinsed 3 times and used vinegar for the second rinse. Do not use fabric softener if you are going to paint or dye the drop cloths. I heat set the paint in the dryer on high for 1 hour.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by donzi255 Great for curtains.
These drop clothes are perfect for making curtains. The fabric is heavy duty and there are no seams running through the middle of the cloth. The only problem is that some of the hems were uneven.
