Question Cleaning bedding

I want to clean the bedspread that came with the trailer for my bed. The only tag on it doesnít give cleaning instructions. Does anyone know if these can be machine washed or dry clean only?

Typically the larger items like that if they fit in my large Front load washer I wash them. Dry Cleaning is probably easier considering all you need to do is drop off and pick up.

I would go with gentle wash in a big boy washer if possible. Use a mild detergent. Dry with low heat and some of those dryer balls to plump it up. Avoid hot water, harsh detergents or a high heat dry cycle. Mine is a cheapo from China and not very colorfast or comfortable. When it dies we will get something better.

I tossed mine in the washing machine at the house on the warm cycle and dried it on normal and it came out looking pretty good albeit somewhat wrinkled.

We have been machine washing our 2015 Seneca factory beadspread since we bought it...

Normal cycle, warm water and detergent... then into the dryer on Auto until the thing is dry... In our house... if it is not machine washable and tumble dry capable... it becomes a rag. Our Jayco bedspread is still a bedspread - clean, dry and in great shape.

Thank you all for your replies. I would think a bedspread in a TT would be washable, but I never want give too much credit to the bean counters that run the company. I’ll give my washer and dryer a try. Again, thank you for your responses.

We have the same comforter, and have washed it in our washing machine.

Figured if it couldn't survive washing, we didn't want it, so we gave it a try.

We folded ours up neatly, and put it in a storage bag. Then we bought a nice comforter at Tuesday Morning! (an overstock store for those who donít know).

We put ours in the washing machine hoping it would fall apart. It didn't. But quickly the blueish Amazon truck brought a new one. The accent pillows also got an upgraded cover. Brighter colors really help the interior over the dark brown IMNSHO.

We did the same thing!

But we didn't buy a new one. We had a quilt laying around from when we had a Queen Bed in the S&B house, so we just re-purposed it. That being said, it's about time for a new one... Vacuum packed the comforter and it's in the back of a seldom-used linen closet and will be returned to the rig when we sell it.

I'm actually surprised at how many people here kept the OEM comforter in service...

Our pillow toppers and the matching bedspread are also rolled up in storage for the new owners of our rig when we sell it.

It looks great to a new owner but not very practical for us. We just bought a large throw that is easy to wash and dry.

It matches the rest of the decor in the bedroom, the window valences and the padded headboard!

Yeah, I know. But I don't really care much about such things. That's why we kept it; just in case the eventual buyer cares.

I'm more of a "function" kind of guy. I don't really care much what it looks like as long as it functions well. Our quilt is SUPER comfy. And IMO, it doesn't look too bad either.

A padded headboard? That must make extra curricular activities in the rv less painful to the head.

Yup, I have a padded head board as well.

And it does make certain activities more comfortable.

For me, I like to sleep as far up against the wall as I can, so it helps!

Maybe for other stuff too. But I'm not tellin'!!

Same for us... but we may be out boondocking for 2-3 weeks before we make it back into a civilized town that has a laundry facility. We carry a couple of sets of bedding, blankets and cover to swap out while we are enjoying ourselves away from the masses
