    Anybody know the instruction for washing the factory cover?

    I think it's cold water only:
    Little or no detergent:
    No Dryer:

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    P.S. For all of the "do a search" cops....I didn't find anything... :)

    Does it say anything on the inside tab? I'd use one of the industrial tumble type washers so the thing doesn't get stretched apart. Keep an eye on it too or some homeless guy will have a nice red shelter ;)

    ... and use liquid soap, not crystal powder which doesn't always complete dissolve or rinse out well.

    When it comes time to do mine I was thinking of dry cleaning it.... I have a guy who can do anything, including my boat canavas..

    Won't washing it in a regular machine deteriorate the horse logos?

    Washed my Andrea paletot yesterday at 30 grad celsius and was surprised how quick it becomes dry again.
    See the instructions on the mirror ear.
