Re: Cleaning boat cushions
As long as the foam inside is not deteriorated you can take them to the car wash that you put quarters in and pressure wash them. Use some nice smelling Gain Joyful Expressions type stuff, the detergent and then the fabric softener, and make sure you rinse them out well with the pressure washer. Then when you are done, take them and prop them up somewhere in the nice sun and let them dry, you can squish the water out of them first, but they should dry in a nice day. I do this with boat cushions, car seats and interior carpet,my foulies, and my coveralls from work, and other things you would not think it would work on, of course I have my own pressure washer, but the quarter car wash will be just fine and a lot cheaper than $80.00 each. Just don't lay them on anything nasty, like the concrete floor in the was bay, or anywhere you will get grease on them.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
