After struggling to remove the tight fitting foam pieces from my Ikea Poang chair and ottoman cushions for washing and to make a pattern, I thought I'd pass along my tip for getting foam cushions back into tight zippered compartments: I cover the foam with old, worn-out percale sheets. I just serge them on. I don't get fancy. The slippery sheet makes it easier to slide the foam piece into a tight cushion cover and the serged seam provides something to grab hold of to pull them out of a tight fitting cushion cover without adding bulk. I suspect old satin sheets would also work, but, uh, I've never owned any satin sheets.

I've done this and it works great. Bought the sheets at a goodwill store for under $3.

That is a great idea, I just cover the foam with a drycleaner bag, then I pullt out the bag before I zip up the cover.

Good Idea. In an emergency, I've used plastic dry cleaner bags to get the foam in, and then pulled it out.
