well I washed the seat unit as per the instructions, now how do I get it dry? The foam bit is still wet after hours on the line??????

put it in the airing cupboard overnight

i put mine on a radiator, didn't shrink. but its always a risk

no airing cupboard and it's too warm for the heating to go on! So it will dry eventually then, think I'll surface wash it next time!

I didn't even realise you could clean that bit! Just occasionally chuck the fleece covers in the wash and they dry in next to no time.

I used to have a Frog - just left it to air dry, but it does take forever!

i have cameleon i hang the fabric seat unit on rail over bath usaully dry@12-24 hours, i dont wash the foam bit that inserts into the seat - does not get dirt as it is covered by seat fabric

it's the sponge bit you can't remove that's the problem plus the plastic strips as that stops air flow through - I think it's almost dry - will surface wash it next time -

I washed the matress in the carrycot unit and it took 3 DAYS! Just had to leave it in the sun and turn it over every now and then...could try a hairdryer??

I'm sure I took the foam out, does it not come out?

CarGirl Sun 08-Jul-07 22:24:24

one bit of foam comes out the rest is stitched in place, I have many pushchairs but I need my bug for the school rund tomorrow anything else is too much like hard work to push now!

Ahh, yes I think I remember this problem now. What about future proofing and using a liner on the frog so you never have to wash the cover again?! This is what I'm planning with my mountain buggy, so used a sheepskin liner from the start - something more washable might be better tho.

my posh bugs set is on order but it doesn't cover the seat bit but I can't see me really needing to wash it again until I sell it - I'll be using it for another year at the most
