I know our carseat covers come off and we just throw them in the washer. Is this possible with your carseat? Maybe put it in the tub and rinse it off if it doesn't. I'm not sure sorry.

If it doesn't come off your seat, set it outside on the grass, use the hose and rinse it off to the best of your ability. Then get a bucket with HOT soapy water and something like TTO or GSE for antibacterial and use a washcloth and scrub, scrub, scrub!

Then rinse it again with the hose.

Now, if it still stinks after that, use a towel and sop up the water and then sprinkle baking soda all over it, cover it good, let it sit and dry and then vacuume it off and it should be good then. Good luck!

I have hosed down carseats many times in my days, believe me....I use a bucket and brush with some dish soap and suds it up then hose it off again and let it dry in the sun. They do take some time to dry, so you will be without a seat for a day!

Re: HELP NOW please!!!

If the straps are yucky, just spot clean them, they should NOT be submerged in water or washed in a washer. Take a damp cloth and try to clean them seperately as best as possible. If you need help with retreading the seat, let me know. I can't tell you how many times we see the harnesses threaded all wierd because it is difficult to remember how to thread them and they get put back on the seat wrong. I hope it all comes clean for you, that really sucks when that happens.

I think I'll start with the spot-treating...it's actually not as bad as I first thought (tho the smell is enough to bring back morning sickness at 36 weeks). Plus, I don't think I can spare a whole day to let the thing dry out!

How come you can't wash the straps in the washer? I just never thought about it and have washed them a few times before. Now I'm wondering if I've done something horrible or if it's ok to just not do it again?


Thanks!
