It's a Maclaren one and the cover is apparently handwash only. Have just discovered it's got a bit mouldy - any tips?

Boil some water, dissolve biological washing powder and stain remover (Vanish is good), leave to cool a bit, it will foam. Use the foam to sponge down the fabric and leave out in the sun to dry.

Does it look like it would get ruined from a trip in the washing machine? I always put things in the machine that are not machine washable. You could put on a delicate wash? Otherwise can you find out if Maclaren do replacement covers? eBay? Or buy a cheap buggy as a replacement?

Thanks, will try the washing powder first and maybe risk the machine. It's not so awful that I'll buy a replacement, I think - will see what it is like when dried.

ie used anti-mould spray on mouldy upholstery in a car before. would it be bad to use that?

mould & mildew remover usually works a treat on pushchirs, just try and inconspicous area first.
