The bedding is dry clean only?

We just returned from our very first trip in our 2017 International signature. Had a blast, was overall a success. Now I'm home with mountains of laundry and went to wash the comforters and noticed they are dry clean only? Crazy! Anyone was them anyway with success?

Frankly the quality of factory supplied fabrics is kinda Yuck. Most of us replace the bedspreads; but you might want to use yours as a pattern to do the radiused corners correctly if you want a fitted spread.

If you're going to try washing them, make a paper pattern first in case of shrinkage. I'd use Cold water, gentle cycle to wash and partially dry on low heat and finishing on a line wrong side up.

We solved that problem by putting the factory-supplied bedding into a plastic bag and storing it at home in a closet, going instead for a hand-made quilt from Mom.
