What is the best way to clean the cushions in the cabin? Not sure the best product to use but ours are pretty nasty and need a real good cleaning.

Do they have zippers? Unzip the covers and toss them in the washing machine (assuming they're all cloth of some type) and wash on gentle cycle until they're clean then spin dry and lie them flat, no clothes drier!

Just went through this with mine and they finally look clean! The down side was that all of the saloon cushions had buttons which had to be cut off then re- strung. Wasn't hard, no special tools either, but was somewhat tedious.

Yes they have zippers but they are jammed. We were thinking maybe trying to was the acutal cushion part to, and hopefully get them smelling better too.

The best is to remove them and wash like mentioned already, if you can't do that consider using a small steam cleaner then let them dry in the sun.

rather than be redundant, I'll refer you to this
Keep Zippers Working

And once/if you can get the covers off, throw them in the wash as mentioned above. Then you can try to clean the foam by spraying with a bleach solution prob 25%, wring out as best you can, then leave the foam in the sun to dry

Mine were, too. Try SailKote. It has become my go-to product for stuck zippers on the boat.



Once I got the covers off, I just washed them on delicate and then air dried them on my deck.

(It's even in the Sail Net store, under "maintainence"). :)
