How to Clean Uppababy Car Seat Effectively

February 27, 2024

Car seats are a magnet for spills, crumbs and stains. But, how do you effectively clean them without compromising safety? This article examines best practices and cleaning tips from child safety experts and professional cleaners.

To help keep your Uppababy car seat clean, it’s important to wipe it down after each use with a cloth dampened with warm water and mild soap. This will prevent odors and help remove any stains before they set in. It’s also a great way to teach your children about the importance of proper car seat hygiene.

For a deeper clean, professional certified car seat cleaners (QPs) recommend vacuuming the entire car seat with the exception of the canopy to thoroughly clean all moving parts, hidden seams and covers. This will also help to eliminate any dirt or debris that may be trapped in the fabric and is often overlooked.

In addition to regular cleaning, QPs advise that car seat fabrics be washed regularly. This includes the MESA seat pad, infant insert and buckle pads as well as the harness webbing and canopy. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions to avoid damage to the fabric or car seat shell.

It’s also recommended to encourage your child to take off their shoes before entering the MESA car seat and to avoid eating in the seat. This can help reduce the amount of dirt, crumbs and stains that are deposited on the fabric of the seat and may make it easier to clean.
