Cleaning fabric in a new-to-us Itasca Cambria

Just bought our 1st RV and before we take our 1st trip 1st mate wants interior fabrics (upholstery, window treatments, bedroom drape) cleaned. Are all these washable or do some things (e.g. drape) need dry cleaning. No instructions on board.
New to the forum so thought Id start out easy...

We just went through this over the past week on our new to us 2007 Voyage. My wife shampooed all the carpet, upholstery. It looks great now. She was worried about the front curtains because they were very stained, but she took a chance and soaked them first in oxyclean over night before washing then did it again before finially drying them. They too came out well. We have Day Night shades and did nothing to those window treatments. Also I wouldn't attempt to clean any ceiling treatment. I have no idea what your needs or situation is but for us it all worked out. Good Luck

Thanks BillB - we also have a drape as our bedroom “door” that looks like a synthetic- guessing machine wash in appropriate cycling should be OK. Thanks again & good luck with your Voyage... Happy Camping.

The Day Night shades can be removed and washed in the shower. We used Clorox Clean Up Cleaner + Bleach on ours without any issues (rinse well, then air dry). Our 2002 vintage shades came out looking like new.

The Clorox cleaner also worked well on some pretty bad ceiling stains.

For washing the drapes, I'd suggest presoaking any stains with a stain treatment then washing in a gentle cycle with COLD water. I'd hang to dry to help prevent shrinking. Upholstery and carpet can be steam cleaned just like regular household fabrics.
