Anyone have any good advice on how to clean the material on strollers, walkers, etc when the pad is not removable to throw into the washing machine? Grrr it frustrates me, but I don't have any methods right now. Any special cleaning agents or tricks?

I took my granddaughter's stroller apart by unsnapping the cover. Because it had a section that contained either real stiff cardboard or a sheet of plywood, I hung it on the clothesline and used the water hose on it. I let it hang on the clothesline for 24 hours day (thank goodness we were in a drought this summer when I did this) and put it all back together the next day. I mixed a bucket of Dawn dishwashing soap and used a sponge to clean the metal parts of the stroller and let it air dry for the same 24 hour period.

Anyone from the NYC area (NJ or CT to) concerned about sanitizing things for kids. what is too much/ too little. I'm working on a story for Fox5 regarding it. Please reach out to me at Jessica.Cohen@foxtv.com

Holy Cow...the industrial strength. It's also all natural and non toxic. Spray on and dab off, let dry.

Lysol will kill everything...but to make it pretty again, I suggest getting a furniture attachment for a steam cleaner.
