Cushion Help!

Is there an easy way to get the covers off the cushions in my Scamp? I am really struggling with them. I am afraid I am going to tear the foam.

I found it was easiest to "peel" them by working them off so they end up inside-out. Did the reverse to put the covers back on. Little slow and hard on the fingertips, but it worked.

As Kevin suggests just a few inches at a time. When you put them back on put a thin plastic on them (such as dry cleaning bags) will help a great deal to get them back on. To get them off if without plastic on them it helps if you have another party compress the foam while you get the covers off.

I just removed mine last week by peeling them. I was afraid of breaking the small zipper. Getting them back on i had to turn the covers inside out and go backwards...slowly inch by inch. Time consuming but no damage for me.

I removed my covers and put them in the tub with Wisk...and shook and rubbed them all around...omg talk about dirty water!!!!!....sheesh. It took about 10 rinses for the water to run clear.

Good luck!
Just go slow.

There's a trick to getting the cushion cover back on. Use thin plastic like disposable drop cloth or a dry cleaning bag sliced open and a vacuum cleaner...

Here's a demo - the good stuff is at about 4 minutes into video:
