    You will be ok with washing them at 40 and recommend that you dont do them on a very long wash. Take them off the cushions and close the zips before washing.

    Also line dry them rather than putting them in the tumble dryer unless there is the symbol that says you can put them in the dryer.

    Does it give you a choice of Dry Cleaning them, if it does may be worth it, I would make sure you tell them you want them spot cleaned. If you prefer washing and the instructions say 40 I would put some vanish stain seeker in with the wash.

    We did ours recently, on a cool wash and then line-dried- came up great. Then wifey decided that the seat covers needed doing too, so took them off the foams, but couldent get them in the washer! I rang the manufacturers of the upholstery and was told to dry clean only. T ook them to local dry cleaners who saids that they should wash OK so we had them done. turned out brilliant and look so much better now.
    Hope this helps, Cheers, Dave:thumb:

    ours didn't have a label on but looked as if they'd wash OK so took a chance, low temp & short wash - came up really well. Bit of a wrestling match to get them back on though:Rofl1::Rofl1:
