I don’t know about you, but my kids have been in school for almost 3 months, and for me that also means the after-school activities are in full swing!
We end up eating many meals or snacks on the go.
So the other day I decided it’s way past time for my Car Seats to get a little Spa treatment!
Step one – wrestling the darn things out of the car.
Step two – make sure you pay attention to how to disassemble them so you can put them back together again. (Wow that headrest looks grungy!)
Step three – put the covers in the washing machine, washing on gentle cycle. I have never had a problem with mine but you might want to double check that yours can go in the machine.
Step four – while the covers are in the machine, wipe down and vacuum all those crumbs and sticky things out of your car seat. This is also a good time to check if your child needs straps moved higher or backs adjusted.
Step five – take a few minutes to clean out your car and the seats that the kids’ car seats rest on. Fix belt buckles, etc. I use a cordless vacuum if I’m in a hurry or a shop vac with a cord if I’m not. Wipe off the other parts of the car like cupholders and windows. And you can easily just shake out your floor mats.
Step six – air dry the covers overnight or dry on a low cycle in the dryer if able.
Step seven – reassemble car seat covers and install in the car correctly.
Ahhh, so much better! Almost like new!
