Clean or Recover front couch

1996 25' Excella
Is there any good product to clean the front couch? Someone has spilled coke and coffee on it and it just looks nasty. Also can they be recovered, or can you buy the material from Airstream to do it yourself? This is the only thing in my trailer that is dirty looking, and unfortunaly the first thing you see when you walk in too.

I had the same problem. The owners manual says not to do this, but I had nothing to loose so I just ran them through the washing machine. Try to use a front loader on a gentle cycle. Put the covers back on while still wet and let them dry in the sun.
I also misted a little bleach on the foam to kill some mildew stains and let those dry in the sun befor washing the covers.
The worst that can happen is that they will fall apart durring the wash cycle. Then you get to have new covers made.
Mine came out fine. Hope yours do too.
