Machine Wash Curtains

Post by ralphandshirley on Sat Sep 16, 2017 1:04 pm

Hi All,
We are the proud owners of a 2003 Nuevo.
I'd like to wash the curtains - but cannot find any instructions. We believe they are the original curtains.

Would anyone know if they are machine washable?

Thanks in advance!

Coincidental this should come up. As far as I know ours had never been removed, let alone washed.
So a few months ago I took them all down and machine washed them. 30 degrees at full spin.
Hung them out to dry and refitted without ironing, all good. No shrinkage or colour loss as far as I could tell. However I wouldn't tumble dry them.
The van seems a whole lot fresher now.

Thanks Al, mine are also overdue for a wash but have been reluctant to do so after another member said she had managed to shrink hers - 30 degrees it is then allthumbz

Hah! If we ever take ours off, I won't be able to resist shortening them so they sit comfortable on the top edge of the back rest
!!! Such a silly length, as they are.
