Interior cushion cleaning
Having owned an 82 Catalina, the plaid covers will not only shrink if you remove them, but you will have a fun time getting them back on.
Egads, plads are out. I can''t imagine the condition they must be in after 24 years of service. I would suggest you have new ones made and replace the foam at the same time, it is way past its useful life in duration and compressibility.
If cost is a big deal, try a rug and upholstery cleaner like Resolve and a very light bristle brush followed by a sponge. Let the covers on the foam. If you choose to remove the covers for any reason, here''s the trick to getting them back on. Wrap the foam in brown wrapping paper and it will slide right in to the cover. Once you position it start ripping the wrapping paper out. Good luck, either way it''s a project.
