did the covers this morning in our washer, they're drying now in the sun. came out as good as new! yet those foam cushions are still just as soggy as ever, and it's 100 degrees outside!
Must be nice high today was 72, and last night was in the high 40's. I fear mine may freeze before they dry.

I have the original cushions for my 1982 Burro, I am wondering if anyone has ever cleaned the foam? How did you do it?

Took the covers off my cushions from a 13 foot Boler, then used sunlight dish soap which I sprinkled on. Then used a garden hose and sprayer till soap was gone. Hung them over anything I had in the back yard to let them drain, squeezed out the ends that hang, and in two days they were dry. Washed the covers also, hung to dry, but don't put in a dryer cause they will shrink.

Mac, if the foam will fit in your washer, put in and let the washer spin out the excess water! Then put them back out in the sun to dry.
