Last year from Santa Paws, Riley received a large bolster dog bed. I regularly wash the outside shell. It has two zippered areas, one for the bolsters and one for the main bed part. When I wash the shell I place the insides, (the long bolsters and cushion) outside to 'air out'.
The stuffing is a mixture of foamy bits (like big cotton balls and cedar chips) and after washing the shell the other day, I can still smell the bedding part.
Can I toss the cushions in a large commercial washer. Of course I will be sneaking it into a laundry mat in a black plastic bag and using the furthest machine from the attendant
Can I pop them in the dryer or take them home wet and air dry them?
I don't think you can wash cedr dog beds! Costco ones are cheap enough you can throw them outside when they reach that stage, or use them for the porch bed....and, er, it is not the right thing to do to use the laundromat...

Pitch the innards and restuff with an old comforter that you can wash. If you really like the idea of foam, watch the sales and see if you can find a memory foam mattress pad to cut up and add to the comforter for a little more support. You won't be able to wash that, either, but if t's cheap enough you can pitch it when it starts to smell too bad.
