Makers Cleaning Cloths: http://bit.ly/makersclean Being a new parent comes with all sorts of cleaning challenges. One that we've found particularly challenging has been cleaning a baby car seat, specifically, our UPPAbaby Mesa infant car seat. We've had all sorts of spills and explosions over the past 6 months, so we decided it was time to make a video dealing with how to clean a baby car seat. Whether you have the Mesa or any other brand of car seat, this will give you a really good rundown of the steps and techniques for cleaning, and you can simply double check your user manual to ensure you are doing it the right way for your particular brand and model. ***MY CAR SEAT*** UPPAbaby Mesa https://amzn.to/2RCUFPd COMMENT QUESTION: What other baby gear cleaning questions do you have?

COMMENT QUESTION: What other baby gear cleaning questions do you have?
Virginia Bollinger (4 months ago)
I would love some tips on cleaning crib bedding. Specifically things like crib bumpers. I’ve put them in the wash before and i feel like the bumpers come out mishapen from the machine and they never look new again. Thanks!

Samantha S I found a clear nose sucker in baby section of Walmart made by the Neti pot brand I believe. It can be taken apart for cleaning and boiling or sterilizing in the microwave. It works just as well as the cheap blue ones we kept throwing away.
Samantha S (6 months ago)
Nose sucker! How to clean I’m just throwing them out and getting new and $$, jumper, carriers everything!

Clean My Space I don't know but can you do a cleaning with disposable gloves? if I subscribe you

How to clean the sterilizer
Here’s a question why is your child being forced into a car seat she far too old for she’s over six months old and should be forward facing in a backed booster not squished into a newborn carrier or infant better still in your arms with the seatbelt around both of you is far far safer than that death traps with highly dangerous illegal straps
Cassandra Dabling (23 days ago)
Yay! Thank you, I was overwhelmed by this project. Rylee is SO CUTE! Well done! 😍
Lisa (1 month ago)
How did you clean the straps after the poop accident? 😬
Rachel Mullins (2 months ago)
I'm glad you stressed checking the manual. I had a Graco seat and they seriously said hand wash only! It was ridiculous. Now my shopping requirements after checking weight and height limits include washing instructions lol. 😆
This Single Mom (6 months ago)
Aww, RIley was so cute and camera ready at the end. Just like her Mom!
Heidi Bowie (6 months ago)
As my son is 24, I was going to skip this one, but he and his wife just announced they will be giving me a grandchild next Spring!! Suddenly, cleaning a car seat is NEED TO KNOW!!
Karen Rodriguez (6 months ago)
Riley is precious
SweetPeaBehnsen (6 months ago)
Oh thank goodness. I have this exact wool carseat and it needs cleaning!
Lauren Elvington (6 months ago)
What is the drying rack you use ?
Li'Easha Kaindoli (6 months ago)
Yay baby stuff!!
Marilu Paterson (6 months ago)
My question is - how do you get sunscreen stains off pram seat material?
J A (6 months ago)
Pack n play especially the mattress pad it comes with please.
Dusty Road Design (6 months ago)
oh Riley is a darling! Looks so much like her dad :-)
Chrisoula Lakkas (6 months ago)
Being open to admitting that you’re wrong is one of the most undervalued personality traits.
Sharmeen Moona (6 months ago)
Thank you Melissa for this. I think I requested for this over four to five videos lol
StephM. (6 months ago)
I was under the impression that you couldn't use soaps on the seat belts?I thought it was water only because of the risk of making seat belt material damaged.
April Holmstrom (6 months ago)
StephM. Every brand has their own “rules” based on their safety testing. Some straps can have a mild soap, others can’t. Some covers can be washed and dried, others are hand wash and air dry only. Just depends.
T Can (6 months ago)
I she talking to that cute cameraman
Lynette de la Cerda (6 months ago)
It gets harder when they transition to the bigger car seat. Dragging that thing out of the car and reinstalling is a pain lol I don’t let my kids eat in the car anymore... well sometimes.. 😜
Kat W. (6 months ago)
How cute is she??? Loved that smile. Adorable.
Olga Almonte (6 months ago)
She's so adorable. God bless.
Markel Nickerson (6 months ago)
My sister is having her first baby. Could you do a video on cleaning a baby seat, the ones with toys on them?
K Idriss (6 months ago)
Baby clothes for stains would be really helpful
Sofia Ioana Del Prete (6 months ago)
Did you clean the car seat before using it for the first time?
Sbella Lopez (6 months ago)
Great job!! Raley gets everything in her mouth😉😅😅🙃 all kids do🤗🤗🤗 great tips! She adorable!!
glenda brekke (6 months ago)
This is way of the subject, I follow all your cleaning tips, thank you. Do you have any nice smelly ideas for like a nice smelling dresser drawer or linen closet? I live in an old house and my towels don't smell good and same with dressers that are old

Cleaning a portable cot. My little girl is 3 months younger than Riley so your videos do help
YoAmbre (6 months ago)
Melissa is getting lots of points from me, 1. Home birth 😍 and 2. She mentions to follow the manufacturer directions 😍😍😍
Carolyn Zook (6 months ago)
I have no baby, and yet I watched this whole thing.
Sugar Magnolia (6 months ago)
Food and drink spills on light / whitd carpet! K guess that tech could be anything but on my case its from my 3 yesr old so!!
Beauty Nerd (6 months ago)
Great vid thanks for sharing! Can you please lump the baby cleaning gadgets/ items into a few large videos? Maybe lump them into categories or subcategories. Just a suggestion so I can watch longer videos that contain more baby items rather than one item per video. Thanks!
fanrita santier (6 months ago)
Thank you for the video. And baby Riley looks so cute and growing fast.
Jessica (6 months ago)
I’m due in 2 weeks. This came at a perfect time!
Susan Gilchrist (6 months ago)
Gurrrrl, just WAIT until you have a toddler in a seat with cup holders. There is NOTHING nastier than a toddler’s cup holder.
Susan Gilchrist that’s why you don’t allow them anything to drink or eat in the car no matter how long the trip is
dote - (6 months ago)
Yes read the manual. Some seats just say to spot clean.
Kirkus Karen (6 months ago)
How many buttons should we click lol 😂
Evila Selvoni (6 months ago)
Cute baby 😍
Tammy Hruby (6 months ago)
That little one is the CUTEST!
Jacqui Bossier (6 months ago)
Pretty baby
Patty Adams (6 months ago)
Yaaay. I needed this ! 👍🏻 so the straps u clean with water only or cleaning product ? Riley is adorable! 😍
Mei Tam (6 months ago)
Patty Adams water only if possible. If not a very mild detergent with water. You don’t want to wash off the fireproof chemicals that are on the straps. Never machine wash the straps.
naj kahliya . (6 months ago)
What a cutie pie 💕
Alma Ramirez (6 months ago)
I'm so happy you are doing baby videos, I discovered your channel in my nesting phase but when I found out you were having a baby too, I wished you would have been ahead of me so I could watch baby cleaning tips. Example how do you remove explosions on onesies or what to do when baby eats pasta and even tho she has a bib it's all over the sleeves and if that's not bad when you take her out of the high chair haaaa it's all over her pants too!!!!
Rachel Mullins (2 months ago)
Pasta is a diaper-only meal lol...then straight to the tub
Michaela Fuchs (6 months ago)
are you sure that you can't remove the straps? usually you can and you can wash them in the washer as well.
StephM. (6 months ago)
You're not supposed to use seatbelts in a carseat that have been washed in a washing machine.Theyre considered unsafe.
Madhura Patil (6 months ago)
Big thumbs up for Riley😘👍❤
Ambur Dennis (6 months ago)
Yay home birth!
kathy89ortg (6 months ago)

Do you recommend the drying rack you showed in this video? Where can I find it please?
France Vachon (6 months ago)
What a cuty little one you got there !!! Very very cute, congradulations for both of you !!! have a great week end !!!
MissMoon111 (6 months ago)
Whats the scar on rileys head?
Jenjen (6 months ago)
Yay homebirth!!!
NebulousNattie (6 months ago)
Haha. I can tell your baby is still little. Once the snacks and drinks start getting all over it, take out the straps, and hose that thing down outside! So much easier and faster.
Jennys Trek (6 months ago)
That was my first thought. Then the second was finding the time. I turn it upside down to shake out all the crumbs and spot clean when needed.
Chitra Uttamsingh (6 months ago)
So cute
Dana Pichardo (6 months ago)
Pack and play cleaning, especially the fabric on the sides.

Love Riley 😍 My girls are out of baby car seats but I remember cleaning and stripping them well Younger two 9yrs & 6yrs still have booster seats (uk law) and I do the same wash them regularly
Barb Jessen (6 months ago)
Where did you get your drying rack
Irena Perel Caplan (6 months ago)
I'm currently pregnant and I was really looking forward to baby gear cleaning videos! I would love to see how you clean Riley's toys and basically anything else baby related. I love your channel :)

I bought a high chair 2nd hand at a garage sale (the people I bought it from had not used it in years as their son is 5 now). Well, the straps are pretty funky. What would be the best way to clean them? I can't just remove them because obviously for safety reasons they aren't supposed to come out. Thanks!
Rachel Mullins (2 months ago)
They should unclip from the back and you throw them in the wash with the cover, then clip them back into place. If they absolutely don't come off, I would do like she did in the video, maybe use oxy clean in a bowl of water and a toothbrush or small scrub brush. Then rinse with a damp rag and let dry.

I would like to know ,how to wash and care cloth diapers
michele christensen (6 months ago)
Riley is adorable! I have 6 grandbabies so love the little ones. :)
Bruna Teixeira Novais (6 months ago)
Please, how to clean toys??
Anna Owczarek (6 months ago)
But a nasty child - MONSTER !
princessannika1996 (6 months ago)
Be sure to be extra gentle to all the belts. I dont know how it is in other parts of the world, but in europe it is important that if there are warning signs on the carseat, (even the ones on the fabric) they must be readable, or the carseat is not allowed to be used(legal reasons) so make sure they are intact. If not, Contact the company which makes the carseat.
Megan Sonnenberg (6 months ago)
Stroller!!! Lol all the baby cleaning please!!!

Samantha Webb (6 months ago)
I would love to hear about your home birth story. ❤️
Erica Evoy (6 months ago)
I was told not to allow the straps of the harness to get wet, that it takes away the fire resistant coating on them. Not sure if it’s true or not, it’s just what I was told. 💓
Jennifer Pierce (6 months ago)
They get wet from drool, water will not hurt :)
Liz Layne (6 months ago)
Usually the manufacturer says rhey cant be submerged in water but scrub/wiped down is ok
Acinomnieves3 (6 months ago)
Where did you get that drying rack?
theresa johnson (6 months ago)
that is a great idea for those new parents and yes more videos on your baby cleaning and i can not wait to see how you do when she starts moving everywhere helping you out
wxclim8 (6 months ago)
2:42 Pooped on the straps? lol...How does she poop on the straps? (Yes, obviously, I've never had a kid).
Elizabeth Roads well if parents didn’t use nappies that weren’t the wrong size and changed them often enough nothing would leak end of problem
wxclim8 (6 months ago)
Ah ha! Poop finger paint...lol. Cute little mess makers. Moms don't get enough credit. 😊
Elizabeth Roads (6 months ago)
The poop over flows and leeks out sides. One of the straps is between the legs when you fasten it in. Also some babies think poop is fun paint they can spread over everything. If they can reach it they will use it to make a mess and that doesn't just apply to poop lol.
The Deco Cottage (6 months ago)
Thank you for doing your research and educating people to clean their seat according to manufacturer instructions . It’s so important not to compromise the integrity of your car seat since it’s purpose is to protect your child in a car accident.
Maria Borracci (6 months ago)
Hi Melissa your baby she so beautiful 😊
candycane6326 (6 months ago)
Pack and plays! My first one is on the way, and we are getting a second hand pack and play to save money. Looking forward to the stroller video for sure :D
makola1970 (6 months ago)
Mom life - pyjamas all day! Lovely to see Riley ❣️
Pri USA (6 months ago)
It’s much better and safer to use natural laundry detergent,free of chemicals,perfumes and dyes since these substances can cause cancer and disrupt your endocrine system!!:( thanks for the great video and I can’t wait for the stroller cleaning tips!!!:)
Pri USA there shouldn’t be a need to ever wash a car seat beyond whipping the straps this type of seat they will be out of in a maximum of six months not long enough for it to get that dirty and by two years they don’t need car seats or boosters

Michaela Fuchs (6 months ago)
haha me too
A Baker (6 months ago)
Not gonna lie...at 4:25 in the video, I was like, 'Hey! Move the banner!' because it blocked Riley for a few seconds. Peek a boo! :D And same...my baby is 21 and a senior in college. This channel just helped me totally transform my house, and those microfiber cloths are no joke (really worth every penny). It's not hard supporting small entrepreneurs when they feed your baby fix like this. Though, I might freak my husband out if he catches me watching videos on how to clean baby stuffs!
Danielle Lisco (6 months ago)
Me too...
