Upholstery Cleaning

I am interested in cleaning the upholstery in our 2011. Has anyone done this? I see that for the couch the foam can be zipped out. Can the sleeves just be thrown in the washer on delicate? What about the back pieces of the couch that have suede....I only assume these have to be cleaned differently then the throwing them in a washing machine (if the upholstery can be washed that way and can be cleaned with water. I appreciate any direction or advice I can get.

I had to clean the upholstery for one bed. Call Jayco with my Vin number, they where a lot of help. They warned me about pulling the mattress out and putting it back togther. The matress had a cotton like batting that wah hard to deal width. If I recall they recommend simple soap and water.

Wife says yes if the machine is a front load, no agitator. She spots with Tech which was given to use with new carpet. So far it has taken out all stains at home & the RV.
TECH Stain Remover
She also uses a "Little Green Machine" after the Tech treatment.

You can also use a couple (maybe a few) cans of automotive carpet & upholstery cleaner and a scrub brush. I've used it in the past with good results.

We have a bissel spot cleaner. Works great for cleaning up after kids and pets but if I was doing the entire trailer I'd rent a rug doctor for the day and do my house, vehicles and trailer all in one day.

Upholstery Cleaning

You can remove the seat covers and arm covers and put them in a washer on cold/cold or warm/warm Not hot wash and NOT hot dry. Better to let them air dry so they don't shrink.I would prespray and use very little detergent. If detergent doesn't get rinsed thoroughly, it leaves a sticky residue that will attract dirt. Not sure if you have suede, but I would doubt it. Probably a crushed cotton or similar fabric. But check with Jayco. You could do the same as I just mentioned if they are removable.
