Hi again, today my DH made a new dinette table out of Birch plywood! Thank you forum archives, for that information. The table is so pretty. The previous one had gotten wet and warped and basically disintegrated because of the leaking rear window. Now a lot of the mildew smell is gone and I'm ready to do something about the cushions. The covers and foam on my cushions are in perfect condition. I believe they are the original. blue plaid. PO had the Scamp
professionally cleaned, and everything smells like the cleaning chemicals with a hint of mildew. I want to wash the cushion covers. Can I machine wash them? On cold and gentle, and hang to dry?
Also, under the covers the foam is wrapped in plastic sheeting. Very thin, lightweight plastic sheeting. Is this normal? Should I rewrap them before I reinstall the covers? The foam is in perfect condition, no mildew, and I'd like it to stay that way! The spare tire cover also had this same type of thin plastic sheeting underneath it. However in that case water had gotten in and soaked between the sheeting and tire for the bottom 1/3 of the tire and made a bit of a mess of the inside of the tire cover. I'm thinking the plastic sheeting could be a mistake in the cushions, trap moisture.

p.s. I'm still not having great luck searching the forum for topics. Any tips?
