Cleaning upholstery

Post by Bill Silvester on Wed May 31, 2017 11:23 pm

I would like to clean the covers in our Symphony.
Has anyone any advice, such as are they washable, or should be dry cleaned?

Hi Bill
I haven't washed or dry cleaned our van seats, however usually sponge them down with a solution of warm water and cleaner during a hot breezy day with the van windows open .

I used a steamer to clean/freshen up mine.
Did the side wall carpeting as well.

Buy some upholstery cleaner and clean as recommended on bottle but don't over wet the upholstery. Use a wet/dry vacuum cleaner to remove as much of the liquid immediately after application.  Best to do the job on a hot day to aid drying.  I do mine about twice a year as it is surprising how grubby the seating gets over time.
