Removing a hub cap from a stroller wheel is not easy. It can be frustrating for parents when they are trying to get their child out of the stroller and find that there’s no way to remove the hub cap because it has been snapped on too tight. This post will show you how to remove a hub cap from a stroller wheel with ease!
Steps on How to Remove a Hub Cap from a Stroller Wheel
Step 1. First, remove the wheel from the stroller frame by unscrewing it. Be careful not to touch the brake pads placed on either side of the rim.
Step 2. Once you’ve removed one hubcap, place your fingers under a section and use gentle pressure to pop off the remaining caps with ease!
How to remove a centre cap without removing the wheel
If you have a centre cap that is loose and cannot be removed without removing the wheel, don’t fret! You can still remove it from the hub with just your hands.
Step 1. Use a screwdriver to gently pry open up one of the two tabs on either side of the centre cap’s lip. Don’t forget to protect yourself by wearing gloves while doing this. Once you’ve pried off one tab, use your fingers under the other section and pop them right off like before!
Step 2. If there are any stubborn pieces left over after popping out all four corners, place your hands together around where they are stuck for more leverage so that they’ll come out easily!
How to clean a second-hand stroller
This blog post will show you how to clean out a second-hand stroller. You can do this with any type of bleach, but it is recommended that you use bleach for clothing or bedding. The good thing about using these types of bleaches is that they are milder and won’t cause as much damage if used on the wrong surfaces. Here’s what you’ll need:
- A gallon jug or other container to mix your cleaning solution in
- Cloth rags
- One cup white vinegar (to help kill germs) – Bleach (Use only one cap full per gallon.).
#1. Pour your chlorine-based cleaner into the bucket/container. Fill up the rest with water.
#2. Pour in the vinegar to help kill any germs and dissolve coffee/tea stains that may be on your stroller.
#3. Mix well with a cloth rag or old towel. Dampen a clean, white cloth rag with some of the solutions you made. If needed add more bleach to the mix. Soak up the excess liquid from around where you want to remove the hub cap using another dry cloth rag.
#4. With both hands, hold onto either side of a rubber band on top of the wheel casing over which your tire sits (the part just below your hubcap) and pull sharply outward until it pops off.

How to get cigarette smoke out of a stroller
Below are some tips for how to remove the cigarette smoke smell from your stroller:
Step 1. Use a wet cloth or sponge with water and detergent, soap, or shampoo. Rub the surface thoroughly until all traces of residue are gone. Repeat this process if necessary. Be sure not to rub too hard on any fabric seats as you may cause damage to them in the long run.
Step 2. Pour baking soda onto an old rag or towel that is dampened with hot water; use it as a scrubbing pad and go over every inch of the surfaces in your stroller (including handles). Rinse clean by wiping away with towels moistened just enough so they won’t drip down below whatever surface they’re being used upon.
How to deodorize a stroller
It is advisable to periodically use a deodorizer for your stroller. There are many types of odour removers available that will not harm or damage the fabrics in your stroller. How often you need to clean with an odour eliminator depends on how much time and effort you want to put into cleaning the inside surfaces, as well as what type of materials it’s made from.
Step 1. Spray down all fabric seats with water mixed with either baking soda or diluted white vinegar; let sit for five minutes then wipe off any residue before letting dry completely.
Step 2. Place cotton balls at strategic points around the base area where urine can collect (underneath seat pads, tray tables) and leave them there until they have absorbed odours.
