About this deal

Mold and rust are MUCH better to prevent than put away, so never store your pram or pushchair somewhere cold (or temperature-changing) and humid (like in a cellar). And never leave it outside! Let's be honest - most of us don't care about their pram, pushchair, or buggy as much as it's (maybe) needed. If you don't have these stores around you, an alternative to those would be a "carpet and upholstery cleaner" spray from Gunk, Sprayway, Frost... or look at any brand that does a pressurized upholstery spray for seats in the car. The eco-alternatives and pro-tips You may hear different opinions about which sprays and agents are the best to lubricate stroller wheels (or other parts like joints) with. For me, the "classic" - WD-40 spray - worked the best most of the time, not clogging (some say it may clog joints a bit, but I never had this experience) or damaging any part of the stroller through the years I went over different strollers. If an 'originally made for military purposes' invention is not "hard-wearing," nothing is, I say ;-) And - it helps conserve the metals, acting against rust. Also, this spray is available in almost every country and in most medium- to large stores (even in many supermarkets). Also, you'll find it on gas stations or in car accessory shops.

Clean and lubricate your stroller's wheels on a monthly/once-per-two-months basis to keep them in good condition. An important TIP: Never use fabric softener - it acts against the fabric waterproof ability and may cause discoloration. On the other hand, a baby-mild disinfectant - laundry sanitizer can be used in small quantities instead of a softener - and is rather advisable, thinking about the dirty feet in the stroller seat. On the other hand, the padding parts like harness pads or removable (fabric) bumper bar covers can be machine-washed pretty much always. At least, mine never got damaged like that. It may be they are too small to rip somehow - or simply made differently, taking the baby may chew on them. Another big help - and I believe yours, already, too - are wet wipes (normally meant for wiping the baby The higher the temp is going to be - as well as the higher the spin speed - the more damage, fading, or weakening of the stroller fabrics is possible to happen. The washing gel or powder should also be the gentlest possible - and don't use much of it. I usually go for the sensitive - baby-friendly powders or gels. The clean wheel axle should be oiled by spraying or any other application of a lubricant. GOOD TO KNOW: Watch out not to spray/oil the foam/tire parts of the wheels if using a silicone-based spray. Some EVA or plastic wheel tires may start to squeak if reacting badly with the silicone lubrication. Also, an oily tire is not the best to drive with (and makes the surfaces you stroll on greasy = dirty, meaning slippery floors at your house). So - avoid spraying the foam/tire part. Only spray the axle, bearings, and moving parts should be lubricated.Another lubrication agent to consider is a 'White grease' spray (white lithium grease). It's a lubricant for in-line skates or car door hinges, so why not stroller wheels.

I mean, wheels are such a vital "organ" of a stroller, getting you through everything and very much impacting the whole feel of the ride that any of these problems you will be aware of A LOT. Don't machine-wash your fabrics - only when absolutely necessary (rather, use a wet wipe or a wet-cleaning spray and gentle brushing). For manual cleaning/washing your stroller fabrics (which I highly recommend, if there's not a brutal-dirt emergency situation), I got very fond of upholstery cleaner sprays from DM drogerie or Lidl. It's these pressurized sprays that shoot out foam, which you spray onto a wet fabric, leave to "work its magic," then brush, wipe with a dry cloth as much as you can, and when dried at least partially, vacuum out. Maximum two repetitions of this process even for the worst dirt - and it was gone. These can also be used for the canopy (hood) of the stroller, which is a part that often can't be removed to machine- (or hand-) washing. If you are one of those moms that try to live as ecologically as possible, a mixture of sodium bicarbonate and vinegar acts like a strong cleaning agent. Of course, the smell is rather pungent at first, BUT don't worry, because after wiping it with water at the end then leaving the fabrics to dry out - the smell WILL evaporate. If still afraid - just put a few drops of a nicely-smelling skin-friendly dishwashing liquid in the mixture as well.Also, since more rigid than a t-shirt, for example, they might get ripped or get holes torn after such a wash, and it's not worth the risk, from my point of view. I think so since most stroller fabrics are made to be quite easy to clean - with a wet cloth or a brush (again, brush gently rather than harshly). And if you really need to machine-wash your covers, FIRSTLY vacuum-clean them, then use the gentlest program your washing machine offers. I mean it. (But please don't wash them if not absolutely necessary). An important thing to remember (if you decided to wash them anyway) would be the hand-wash programme of your machine and COLD temperature only.
