Baby car seats are disgusting. From Cheerios and raisins, to poop, pee, vomit and mold - we have seen it all lurking in those car seats. If you are going to attempt to clean your car seat at home make sure that your very first thing read the instruction manual. Every car seat manual will have directions for how you can clean it. Some just want you to spot-clean the item, using a very gentle or mild soap. Others will allow you to disassemble it, remove the straps and put it on a gentle cycle in your washing machine. Do not put your item in the dryer because they will shrink and you will not be able to properly reassemble it. If you don't have a serious cleaning need, you can always gently lift up the bottom of the car seat, vacuum underneath, try to get the milk and crannies. We often use Q-tips to try to get to those deeper, darker spots. And if you are still having trouble or you still have smells, especially vomit and urine. That stench tends to come back in that hot car after it's been sitting there a few days, you can always bring it to a professional car seat cleaning company.
