    Default Mould

    I am sure this has been asked before but how do I get mould off a car seat?

    We got given two by BIL and they were in the shed and got damp, there is now mould all over them

    Do you know how old the seats are, and the brand? You can't use any mould remover on them as it can damage the fire retardant. You're best off emailing the manufacturer and asking for a replacement (if it's new) or buying a new cover from them.

    If the mould is on the harness/tether strap you will either need new seats or new harnessing. I had one do the same and I could get a new seat for the price of getting it fixed. The reason you can't just clean them up is because the mould might weaken the fabric.

    Thanks they are a few years old ( 2nd hand) but within the 10 yr frame.

    They are more of a back up if anything.

    I didn't realise mould could affect the strength of the harness

    If you can afford it (layby?) the Infasecure Neon and a Rallye (0-4 & 6m-8y respectively) are on sale at Big W and will be on sale again in July for about $120 each.
