Just picked up a second hand pushchair icandy orange I had one before but wasn't about to spend a grand again on a new one.

Surprisingly the pushchair is in good condition however her house was absolutely disgusting. I can't believe she even had kids in there, very lovely lady though!

Now how do I wash it? It must be covered in germs I feel like chucking the whole thing in the bath to sit.

I always jet wash my prams. Most fabrics are machine washable too, including the hoods. Just google the model to check.

Get it dry cleaned?

...if it's clean to look at and smell, I'd just wash the machine washable bits and then work on being a bit less uptight about "germs". Leave it outside for a few days.

Warm water with bio washing powder and a sponge.

Best way to wash all soft furnishings, so should work a treat on the pushchair!

I'd just wash the fabrics in the washer with a bit of Dettol laundry liquid and hang on the line (UV light is naturally antibacterial).
Give the frame a good wash with a bucket of hot soapy water and hose off before leaving out to dry.

Scrub with hot water and detergent, leave in sun to dry, ours was regularly covered in mud and chocolate

Take it to a car wash and ask for a quick rinse. Treat with carpet and seat fabric cleaner for stains. These are just some options
