Ogilvy Half Pad: When it must be washed

Disclaimer: I put off washing my Ogilvy memory foam half pad for a long time because 1) I am lazy and 2) I was a little nervous to wash it for fear of ruining it.  Thankfully, my fears were unfounded, because I washed it over the weekend and it came out great!

It was also very easy!  Here is what I did:

Step One– Remove memory foam inserts through the Velcro portion at the top of the pad

Step Two- Put the cover in the washing machine, with the washer settings to delicate cycle and cold temperature, add a small amount of non-bleach laundry detergent.

Step Three- Lay cover out flat to dry

Step Four- Put memory foam inserts back into the pad through the Velcro portion at the top of the pad

Step Five- Enjoy clean Ogilvy pad!

The only part of this process that was a little annoying was how long it took for the suede on the top to fully dry out, it took at least a full day for that.  Thank goodness I ordered another custom cover, which makes it nice and easy for me to switch out the covers while I am washing the other one.  The cover dried to perfection, the suede was still exactly the same as it was pre-washing.  Overall- great success!
