This feels like the best area to put this...

How is this done? My cover is filthy. The car is stored underground but with one side open to the environment in Atlanta's CBD. I could only find what is attached at www.calcarcover.com but wonder if anyone here has any experience.

I took mine to a laundry mat so I could get access to a larger washer with no agitator. Washed using Tide, then washed again with no cleaner. No dryer, air dry only. Had no issues. FWIW, I have the factory Mercedes W124 cover.

I have washed a cover in this fashion. I believe this is the recommended procedure.

Just wanted to share the procedures by MB on how to clean their car covers. I forgot where I downloaded this info, but have been using it on my OE car cover.
