    Default What can I clean the pram with?

    Just wondering how everyone else cleans their pram? Do you hose it? Do you use any cleaning product?

    Our pram had an unfortunate incident today with a strawberry smoothie any advice or tips would be great. Cheers

    St Kilda Mums (a charity that rehomes prams, cots and other baby items) has good cleaning advice:

    I was able to remove the entire pram material from the frame and I put it through the hand wash cycle with lux soap flakes. Came up perfect. I have a BJ city mini.

    Check your pram manual, you might be able to so something similar.

    I used to clean ours with baby wipes but I use baby wipes to clean nearly everything!

    With my old pram I would baby wipe it / put the liner in the washing machine.

    It would depend on the type of pram. With a solid canvas type I would hose it and scrub with a tooth brush to loosen the dirt and then hose again. Mind you I don't like using products on anything!

    My pram is cleaned weekly! I run with it through parkland almost every day, so the tires become caked with mud & it splatters on the canvas underneath too.

    I wait for a sunny day & use a steam cleaner to blast the dirt off. It stays in the sun until dry - I've had no problems with mold or stains yet

    In hot sunny weather I used to take it outside and scrub with disinfectant and hose clean. Came up like new.

    I always like to use a bit of Eucalyptus Oil in some nice hot water and then leave the pram in the sun to dry.
