How to Clean a Peg Perego Car Seat

Italian company Peg-Pérego manufactures four different car seats for babies and children who weigh between 4 and 120 pounds. When cleaning Peg-Pérego car seats, the company advises against using harsh chemicals or solvents and chlorine bleach, ironing and tumble-drying fabric parts and padding, and dry cleaning.
