Basic Cleanliness: Keeping the Chaos at Bay

🍞 Vacuum crumbs & debris: Use the upholstery attachment to suck up those pesky crumbs hiding in crevices. Don't forget the basket and pockets!

🎞 Wipe down the frame: Warm, soapy water and a soft cloth are your allies here. Avoid harsh chemicals and scourers that can damage the paint.

🚗 Clean the wheels: Conquer dirt and grime with a sponge and soapy water. Remember the grooves and spokes!

👕 Spot-clean the fabric: For minor spills and dirt, use a damp cloth and mild soap. Avoid harsh chemicals and bleach that can damage the fabric.

Deep Clean: A Fresh Start for a Grubby Ride

🧽 Treat stains promptly: Don't let stains set in! Use baking soda and vinegar, stain remover, or professional cleaning services (for stubborn cases).

🌊 Scrub the straps: Give those straps a good scrub with warm, soapy water to remove snack residue.

🧼 Remove and wash the fabric: Check the manufacturer's instructions. Most fabrics are machine-washable on a gentle cycle with mild detergent. Air dry, never tumble dry!

🧹 Clean removable parts: Canopy, bumper bar, handlebar cover – take them all off and give them a soapy water bath.

🪀 Don't forget the accessories: Footmuffs, changing bags – follow the cleaning instructions on the label.

Giving a Second Life to a Stored Pushchair

🍄 Tackle the mould: Wear gloves and a mask! White mould can be removed with soapy water, while black mould requires lemon juice, vinegar, or a chlorine solution.

🔘 Clean buttons, zips, and poppers: These often get neglected but can make a big difference. Use warm, soapy water and get into all the nooks and crannies.

Should You Buy New or Clean?

If your pushchair is well-loved but still in good condition, cleaning it can be a cost-effective option. However, if it's seen better days, investing in a new one might be worth it, especially if you plan to use it for a long time.

Remember: Regular cleaning is key to maintaining your pushchair's lifespan and providing a safe, comfortable environment for your little one. So, grab your cleaning supplies and get ready to conquer the grime!

Bonus Tip: While cleaning, check for any worn-out parts or damage that might need repair. This will ensure your pushchair is safe and functional for future adventures.
