Yes, warm water & chuck in the bicarb.

Then use it to sponge down the pongy bits.

If its bad make a paste out of the bicarb and rub in , leave to dry and then brush off with a stiff brush ...Brill !

I put the straps in the wash too with the seat cover when this happens to us

Same with my buggy straps but the bicarb paste worked - I ended up drying the paste with a hairdryer and then brushing off with a nail brush !

We had to replace our car seat when ds did this many moons ago sad. The woman at Mothercare said it was the most common reason for buying a new seat because you can never really get at everything to clean it thoroughly.

Bio washing powder in a small amount of water, and soak the straps while still attached to the seat, then rinse. Presumably if the cover is off the seat it doesn't matter if things get a bit wet? This worked with the highchair straps but we were able to soak them.

What seat is it? There might be a way of detaching the straps and then you can give them a proper soak?
