How to Clean a Britax Car Seat

December 11, 2023

If you have a Britax car seat, you may be wondering how to clean a britax car seat. It is important to follow the cleaning instructions in your user manual. Some car seats can be cleaned with a hose or vacuum, while others may need to be spot-cleaned with warm water and mild soap. It is also important to remove the harness buckle from the seat before cleaning.

First, locate the crotch strap three-bar slides and detach each one. They are black and rectangular with short sides. Next, pull each crotch strap harness tongue and buckle out of the slide slot.

Once the crotch strap harness is removed, place it under warm (maximum 40 degrees Celsius) running water for five minutes. Repeat if necessary. After rinsing, dry with a towel or let it air dry in the sun.

If there is any soap residue remaining on the harness buckle webbing, gently use a sponge with warm water and mild soap to spot-clean the straps. It is best to avoid using any lubricants or solvents, as they can damage the harness webbing.

To re-install the harness buckle, feed the belly pad through the buckle retainer slot at the front of the cover. Then, slide the harness buckle back through the slots and feed the chest clip through the harness buckle hole at the top of the cover.
