    Default Pram strap stain removal help

    Hi all, I was given a hand me down double stroller which has what looks to be, chocolate ice cream stains all over the white/cream coloured straps. The straps are sewn in so they cannot be removed and I think the stains have been there a long time.
    I'm using the pram with a newbie and a 2yr old so I was hoping for a natural way to try and remove the stains, any ideas on how to clean these straps?

    Take the pram to a car wash and high pressure clean

    i'd just get a gurney and wash it.. or some sort of fabric cleaner with the gurney after it.. maybe buy some shoulder strap covers and put them over the straps?

    Steam mop? Take the head off and direct the nozzle on the straps.

    Id just scrub the bejezus out of them with hot soapy water then gurney the whole pram. I did this recently to my old pram and came up a treat.

    I ended up using exit mould on the cream coloured straps (they were both dirty and mouldy - tropical climate...) and they came up a treat. I'd soak and then gurney and leave in the sun for the day to dry out.

    Thanks, I'll give it a go. I don't have a gurney, but I'll try and borrow one if possible. If not, I guess I'll just keep on scrubbing

    If all else fails you could buy some strap covers from a wahm pram liner page? Just cover them up

    I had mould on my emmaljunga (white) I sprayed with sard. Then I soaked in nappy San. Then I put it outside in sun. I repeated this about two times lol. Worked for stains too.
