My lo was sick in his car seat yesterday, I have washed it down with warm water, fairy liquid and a little bit of dettol, then rinsed it with warm water mixed with a little bit of vinegar - but it still stinks!!! Can anyone give me any tips?

Can you take the cover off and put it in the machine? If not then try dampening it and covering it with bicarbonate of soda, leave i for a few hours then vacuum off, normally works a treat!

Plenty of bicarb of soda to absorb the dampness and the smell. Hoover it off when thoroughly dry. Usually works on everything and anything!

A bowlful of vinegar left in the car overnight will get rid of residual smell from car. As for car seat, take off removable cover, dunk in bath/sink full of bicarb of soda, rinse, then wash in biological powder.

I took boys car seat apart and machine wahsed cover and straps.Which got rid of teh vomit stink very well. Only when putting it back together did I find teh label that said DO NOT Diassemble straps. Too late, it all went back together fine, but I am very methodical about these things.
