To throw the whole pram away

My daughters spilt milk in the seat of her silver cross pioneer and I can not get the smell out. I've tried hand washing it and then it just has a damp smell. Cam I take the black seat liner off and put it in the wash or just get a whole new seat!?

Have you tried bicarbing it?

I can't remember if the whole seat comes off for washing.... I'm sure the straps get in the way.

Vinegar and water solution in a spray bottle, keep on soaking and drying the area until the smell goes

Spray mouthwash onto it, the anti bac properties will kill the bacteria and get rid of the smell

The straps should come off and the seat fabric is usually removable it sometimes has a wooden board in the bottom you can slip out depending on the model of the pram have you tried YouTube for a video of how to remove the fabric ? If it won't come off try a mix of washing up liquid and distilled vinegar to wash it down with a damp cloth and then when its dry it shouldn't smell as vingar kills the bacteria causing the odours

Omg, those are really expensive aren’t they.

I would try to use vinegar and water as pp mentioned. And use a steam cleaner after that.
That’s how my friend managed to remove the smell of cat pee from her carpet.

I would also try to contact the manufacturer perhaps they have some ideas. Maybe it’s possible to deassemble some parts and clean them individually? I am sure you’re not the first parent to deal with this problem.

Good luck

We have companies that take your pram away and clean it. Google your local area to see if you have similar

YouTube? all sorts of random hints & info or there

The seat fabric comes completely off and you can wash it. My granddaughters pioneer had the same accident. Just put it in on it’s own in a cool wash, put back on frame whilst damp and leave to dry.

Put it in the washing machine , it's all synthetic ! If you can get it off it will wash ..

i once had to get rid of lingering smells in a flat - & read online about white vinegar - you just leave a bowl of it out for a few days.
I was v sceptical, but a bowl in each room certainly rid the flat of really pervasive cigarette smell - and it wasn't replaced by a vinegary odour.
I sold the flat really quickly, although others in the development had been on the market for months.
Try leaving a bowl inside the pram.

Bicarb. And you should be able to wash it anyway

BlackeyedSusan · 08/12/2019 15:14

Next time milk or wee is spilt, clean then spray with antibac afterwards. Stops the smell.

HerrenaHarridan · 08/12/2019 15:14

Burn it.

The smell of off milk will prevail!

Do the covers not come off to wash?
