I was given a twin Maclaren techno stroller, which is in immaculate condition, by some friends of ours who are indian. and whilst the pram doesn't smell too bad, i can mainly smell the spices on the hood of the stroller and the handles - (the maclaren foam handles..) is there any way to get rid of this smell? It's just that im not used to it. lol and find it irritating.

Hose it down (on a hot day so it dries easily) and scrub the hood with dishwashing liquid?

White vinegar is good for odour removal, try wiping it down thoroughly with that and then leave the pram to air out a while. Vinegar dries odourless, so it shouldn't smell like anything once it's dry.

I wonder if you could sprinkle it with a box of bicarb soda, then vacuum it off?
