One of the most important things you can do for your baby is to keep their clothes and stroller clean. How many times have you seen a parent with a child in the grocery store wearing dirty clothes?
How often are parents using hand sanitizer when they should really be cleaning the stains before they get old? This blog post will show you how to get rid of those nasty stains on a baby travel system, preventing them from happening again in the future.
Steps on How to Clean, Deodorize and Prevent Stains on a Stroller
Step 1. Wipe down the entire stroller with a clean rag and warm water.
Step 2. Create a mixture of vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, dish soap and baking soda in an empty spray bottle (if you have stains that are really bad use more baking soda). Spray on stain liberally and allow to sit for 30 minutes before cleaning off with another clean cloth.
Step 3. If you still see some dirt or grime remain repeat step two until all signs of previous messes disappear. Finish by spraying your travel system with a disinfectant (optional but recommended) like Lysol wipes or Tree Hut Natural Deodorizer Wipes .

How to tighten a bugaboo frame
A common problem is that your Bugaboo frame starts to shift out of alignment. This can be caused by a number of factors, but it’s usually from overloading the stroller with too much weight or putting extra strain on one side because you’re always using only one seat (i.e., carrying around a carseat attached instead of having another child in the other seat).
Tools needed: Allen wrench How-to fix: First check what type of screws are holding down the frame and find an equivalent size allen wrench for them. Unscrew each bolt completely, then reinsert at new angle until tight, making sure they do not protrude past where they were before – you don’t want to damage your fabric . How to prevent:
Prevention is much easier than fixing and staining, so always be aware of the weight you are putting into your baby travel system and how you’re using it. If possible try not to use only one seat at a time when pushing around both children. And if something does happen don’t worry – take an extra few minutes once in awhile to clean up after yourself!
