DS has just managed to wee in his car seat. I need to wash it, obviously. It says hand wash; if I put it on the hand wash cycle in the washing machine in the large 'duvet' bag, do you think it'll be ok?

Fortunately we've got a spare so at least we can go out this afternoon!

Thanks Chops. I've done it and it's now drying. Just hope it hasn't shrunk! Glad someone else has done it.

I did mine last night too. Just stuck it in at 30 degrees with a slow(ish) spin. I dont know if it's shrunk yet - will find out later!

RGPargy, yes, did mine on the 30 minute, 30 degree wash with 800 spin and put it in the duvet bag, along with the piddle pad which of course had got ruckled up and wasn't actually underneath DS1 at the time.

Do my maxi cosi on 30 degree hand wash setting on my washing machine, put the shoulder pads in a net because they have metal bits on.

Comes up a treat, smells nice and has never shrunk.

I just hang it up to dry.

We have a piddle pad, who came up with that name?

I wash my Britax ones all the time. They've been fine.
