Any stroller that sees a good deal of use will eventually require cleaning and Graco strollers are no exception. Between spilled bottles and baby cups, in-stroller snacking and messy accidents, a stroller can become extremely dirty. Regular cleaning will help keep your stroller looking and smelling fresh, and may prevent stains from setting on the fabric components of your Graco stroller.
Things You'll Need
- Washing machine
- Mild detergent
- 1 tsp. of dish soap
- 2 cups of warm water
Remove the seat pad from your Graco stroller. The seat pad is usually held in place by the seat belts, which thread through holes in the pad. Unbuckle the seat belts and pull the pad forward to remove it from the stroller completely.
Wash the seat pad in your washing machine in cold water with mild detergent, on the delicate cycle.
Hang the seat pad up and allow it to air dry.
Mix approximately 1 tsp. of dish soap into 2 cups of warm water.
Dip a sponge into the soapy water and wring it out until it is damp but not sopping wet.
Wipe down the seat, frame and rain cover of your Graco stroller with the damp sponge. If the sponge becomes dirty, rinse it in clean water and dip it back into the soapy water before you continue cleaning.
Place the dry seat pad back on to your clean Graco stroller, and thread the seat belts through the holes in the pad.
Tips & Warnings
- Wipe up messes in between cleanings with baby wipes. The gentle cleanser on the wipe will not harm your Graco stroller, and baby wipes are easy to carry in your diaper bag or purse.
- Do not use bleach or any harsh cleaners on your Graco stroller.
