Told me how to take it all to bits and that I should put it all in the washing machine.
Obviously my cursory wipe with a damp cloth is clearly not enough blush

I had visions then of footrests and arm rests rattling round the machine! grin

I guess I better pull my finger out then, I've never cleaned ds's chair yet!

OOh I didn't realise they do a Kim & Aggy type assessment.
I think I would also fall in to the Skanky w/chair category.
Will have to get out the disinfectant!

i've never been asked to clean ds2's and he has had wheelchairs since he was 3 (he's 8 now)

was she nice about it or rude?

Dd2 is 7 and has had this one since she was 4, so its looking pretty grotty. Its a power chair with nasty green vinyl seat and supports.

She was quite - how shall I put it - icily efficient?

Shall I put the power unit in too?

And the charger?

ds has his power chair at school and a manual one for home, so i dont really deal with the school one

the people i come into contact with regarding ds2 are all v nice though

It was the wheelchair service OT.

do you think its cruel if I make ds clean his own chair , bribe with chocolate

meltedmarsbars Sun 04-Oct-09 19:59:30

Great if you can make him!!

Don't think dd2 could manage that, unfortunately, otherwise it would be "chores before breakfast" in this house!

ds would love it but not so sure how clean chair would be and just how much water be on my floor indoorwater feature anyone .
