    I spilt something on mine, and i went to go get a new one from the closet and lo and behold there are none. So now i have to wash the one i have. How should I do it? I'm not sure what its made of. It looks like polyester though. I've never really done laundary so i'm kind of confused on how to do it and stuff...

    I'm pathetic i know. :bag:

    You mean a matress cover used to keep them from getting pee soaked in?

    ? No i don't think so. Its not waterproof or anything. I don't think. Just a mattress cover.

    Put it in the washer, with some detergent and fabric softener. If your cover has down in it, take it to a dry cleaner you trust.

    i'm in the furniture industry.. bedding included.

    if you are talking about the run-of-the-mill mattress pad (elastic around the bottom, thin on the sides, soft and cushy on top) then just chuck it in the wash with your whites. nothing bad will happen. i do it all of the time.

    or, you could occasionally buy a new one for about 20-30 bucks. not a bad idea if you are married or otherwise "in the pocket".

    Dude... Holy freaking crap. Those things are so freaking hard to put on... And i would replace those pseudo curse words with real ones if this board would let me. Seriously that thing too me like 30 minutes. I had to weigh one corner down with my bass and the other corner down with my amp. I'm not doing that again for a very long time.

    Lol. I live with my aunt so her. I help fold clothes and i strip and make my bed, but she does the washing and drying part. I think i might start helping out though. It was kind of fun (probably won't be in awhile though). Its like mowing, i liked doing it the first time I did it. Now not so much though...
