Since Emmalyn's trusty stroller and infant car seat are still in good condition for Avalyn to use, we didn't get any new one. However, I knew they needed a good wash. Over the 4 years of use, I didn't really wash it thoroughly as it is really not easy to wash them. Thus, I was thrilled to find out about PramWash, a cleaning specialist for prams and car seats. I no longer need to figure out how to dismantle and wash them thoroughly.
Ordering for washing service is simple and convenient with the self drop off option. After making an order on www.pramwash.com, we just need to drop off the car seats or stroller at any time! We went down on a public holiday to drop off our items for wash.
Before dropping off the items in one of the lockers, we filled up a tag with our order number and particulars, and attached it to our stroller/car seat. Step-by-step instructions for the use of lockers are available at the shop.
Collection of the items work the similar way too. The pin codes for the locker was sent to us via whatapps and we just need to go to the allocated locker to pick it up.
We sent Emma's dirty toddler car seat for a wash too so we rented a Maxi Cosi car seat from PramShare for her.
Our items were picked up the next working day for cleaning!
Before the cleaning, PramWash did a safety and functionality check to ensure that the pram and car seats are in good working condition. Thereafter, non-toxic and baby safe cleaning products were then used to clean the pram and car seats.
The cleaning process includes dismantling (removal of fabric from the frame), vacuuming, soaking, scrubbing, spot stain treatment, frame/chassis wipe down, steam cleaning, fabric sanitization, heat-dry fabric and assembly.
The entire process will take about 5 to 7 working days (excluding weekends and public holidays). It subjected to the dirtiness and thickness of the fabrics.
Toddler car seat
Look at all the crumbs and dirt! I was so embarrassed to show, but the fact is Emma snack on the go at times. Though we have Dyson V8, we are bit busy (lazy and forgetful) to vacuum it.
After the wash, her car seat looks like new now!
Infant car seat
This infant car seat suffered most as Emma soiled it a couple of times when she was younger. I washed it and ended up having lots of lint which I was unable to remove. I still remembered that it took forever for the cushioned seat to dry!
PramWash was able to remove much of the lint and it definitely clean enough for Avalyn's use!
The stroller had accumulated lots of dusts and stains for the years.
There was some stubborn stains at the seat belts but they are now gone! The stroller looks like new!
We are very pleased with the cleaning result and would certainly recommend PramWash service to busy parents around!
