Can I shampoo my couch?

My son and I (he's 8 months) slept on the couch last night. When he got up this morning his diaper was so full that it leaked onto the couch. The kind of couch I have has pillows for where your back goes and I can throw those in the washer but the cushions are too big to put in the washer. Can I just use a shampooer and shampoo the cushions?

  • Are there zippers on the cushion covers that would allow you to take the covers off and throw them into the washer?
