Cleaning pool cover

I have two covers. One is a mesh safety cover and the other is a solid cover (basically a tarp black on bottom) and I usually pressure wash them. My issue is when I wash the solid cover and let it dry on the lawn it burns n turns the grass brown.

My driveway is too small to stretch the tarp on n wash/ dry. What do most people do?

Perhaps folding/rolling it so only one half is open on the driveway when you clean it. Let it dry then roll the clean side up and do the other side.

That's the only solution I can think of??

If the weather is cooperating, you can spray it while still on the pool. You'll have to coordinate it with removing the safety cover and draining. I get the majority of the cover clean this way and, this year, I did not have to do a second cleaning after I got it off. My grass appreciated that!
