When you have a baby, there are all sorts of items that can come in handy. One of those things is a stroller. How many times did you find yourself pushing your child down the sidewalk and then having to stop because they scratched up their precious ride? Well, today we’re going to talk about how to get scratches out of a stroller so that you don’t have this problem again!
Steps on How to Remove Scratches on a Stroller
Step 1. Clean the surface with a dry cloth to remove any dirt or grime.
Step 2. Fill a clean container with warm water and add some dish soap to it. How much you use will depend on how big your scratch is, but using too much may cause bubbles that are difficult to later remove.
Step 3. Soak the area of the stroller where the scratches are for at least five minutes before gently wiping away excess moisture from around the scratched area until all of it is gone.
Step 4. Rinse off again when finished with soapy water then let air dry completely before putting back into service. If there’s still an obvious scratch after this process, try buffing out as best you can by rubbing lightly in one direction starting near the centre of the scratch and working your way out.
How to make a stroller look new again
Step 1. Making a stroller look new again is easy! To start, clean the entire surface of your stroller with soap and water.
Step 2. Next, carefully use a cloth to wipe down the frame and wheels. It’s best if you can do this outside or in an area that does not have carpeting on it so there are no fibres from your rug left behind where they might stick onto plastic surfaces like those found in car seats.
If you want to polish up any metal parts then take a rag dipped into olive oil or mineral oil and rub it over these areas for shine as well as conditioning benefits. Now just run a vacuum cleaner across all fabric surfaces to remove dirt particles that might be hidden inside them before putting them back into service.
How to clean fabric handles: Use a damp cloth with dishwashing soap and rub it on the fabric handle, then rinse with water. Dry thoroughly before putting back into service.
How to polish plastic frames & wheels:
Wipe down frame and wheels using an old rag dipped in olive oil or mineral oil for shine as well as conditioning benefits; vacuum all fabrics surfaces inside housewares like strollers that have dirt particles hidden within them after being wiped off from handling them so they’re ready for reuse again; use dry cotton rags soaked in rubbing alcohol over time to disinfect any area of plastic you haven’t cleaned yet (because many germs are hiding throughout).
It’s often hard enough getting out scratches from the frame and wheels of your stroller, but when it comes to the fabric surfaces inside housewares like a stroller that have dirt particles hidden within them after being wiped off from handling them so they’re ready for reuse again; use dry cotton rags soaked in rubbing alcohol over time to disinfect any area you haven’t cleaned yet (because many germs are hiding throughout).
How to remove stains:
You can also use rubbing alcohol on white spots left by tomato sauce or other food. This is best done with an old rag dipped in olive oil or mineral oil as well if needed for shine and conditioning benefits. If using this method, just be sure not to rub too hard because rubber isn’t very strong against such treatment.
How to remove tough stains:
Spots left from something sticky, like peanut butter or sunscreen are tougher. You can use a cloth dipped in boiling water and then dab the stain with it to loosen up dirt without damaging the rubber body of your stroller. Next, you want to rub on some laundry detergent until the spot is gone before wiping away any residue that’s been loosened as much as possible. Finish off by using rubbing alcohol again for disinfecting purposes.
How to clean and sanitize a used stroller
After you wash your baby’s clothes, toys, or bottles and return them to the nursery make sure you are also washing that dirty old stroller! How do you do it? There are actually some simple steps:
Step 1. Mix up one gallon of water with two tablespoons of soap. Fill a bucket halfway with hot soapy water. (This will help keep any stray dirt from getting carried back into your house).
Step 2. Soak the fabric items in the bucket for about 20 minutes using an agitating motion every few minutes. Remove each item as soon as possible after they have been soaked long enough. (If there is still leftover grime when soaking, use a scrub brush to clean the fabric item).
When all items have been soaked, rinse in cold water. Repeat this process until you get your stroller looking like new again!
How do you get mold out of fabric without bleach?
This is a very challenging task. Mold, especially mold that has been left untreated for long periods of time can be difficult to remove from fabric without bleach. To get rid of the mold you need to use some sort of cleaning product that will break down and kill the mold spores in the cloth or carpet fibers without damaging them.
You don’t want any other type of chemicals like ammonia near your fabric because it could cause permanent damage and not actually help clean up your problem at all. The best way I have found so far is by using products with enzymes like Oxyfresh Pet Stain Remover which contains benzoic acid (an antibacterial agent) and protease enzyme complex (breaks down proteins).
