    Hi
    We have a Burstner with removable carpets (no poppers) question is, are these machine washable and if so what temp?
    They are short pile and look like they are hessian backed. Would like to give them a wash before we head off for the winter.
    Thanks:BigGrin:

    I wouldn't feel confident of putting them in a washing machine, they may get damaged and take forever to dry.
    We have a Vax carpet washer ( other carpet washers are available ( but probably not as good)), that brings all our carpets up like new without over wetting them. They are generally dry in a few minutes. Well worth the outlay, and of course you can do the house too.

    Use Vanish carpet shampoo - the Powerfoam one in the large aerosol.

    Marvellous stuff.
