Hi, could you please share with me how to give  a pram a really good clean?  My MB swift always looks very grubby....  I use spray and wipe to clean the straps and general pram but literally a day later it's dirty again.

Maybe I need a less grubby toddler.....  But a deep clean is definately needed!

* I also have a double BJ mini and love that you can pop that in the washing machine.

Hmm i dont know if this is the 'right' way but i cleaned my quinny zapp by attacking it with the Karcher (pressure sprayer).


Did the same with my Mamas and papas except i took the seat out and machine washed that

Yep pressure cleaner works a treat then maybe buy or make an easily removable cover and strap covers?

Once a year (woops I forgot last year) I wait until a really hot day, then take my prams outside with a hose and bucket of napisan solution (quite concentrated). I wet the entire pram, scrub with the Napisan and cloth, then spray down again with water. Tip it upside down to dry. My pram is a light colour and this method makes the fabric like new.

My old pram I could remove the covers - it required a screwdriver, but it could be done!  Then I put the covers in the washing machine.

Thanks for posting this - I'm going to try it next hot day!

I agree with the hot day! If it doesn't dry properly mine get water marks!

I get a bucket of warm/hot water and a liquid laundry detergent (powdered detergent sometimes doesn't dissolve and leaves behind little white dots!).

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  I'm looking forward to having a super clean pram again!  It's super hot in Sydney at the moment so no worries there :-)

I also wait for a really sunny day, get outside with a nail brush and bucket of hot water with napisan and washing powder in it and just scrub. The hood comes off so just gets thrown in the washing machine.  Give it a good hose off and leave it to dry original.gif
