  • Check your owner's manual, or if you lost it, check the manufacturer's website for any model-specific care instructions. These can also tell you how to dismantle certain parts of the pram to get a deeper clean.
  • Get rid of loose dirt and crumbs. Your vacuum may come with a special attachment for reaching smaller crevices; this is a good way to do this more thoroughly.
  • Use water and a gentle soap to spot clean the fabric of the pram's basket. If your pram has a removable cover or fabric, rinse or soak this in cool water, scrubbing at any stains.
  • Once all the fabric is dry, follow up with a Dettol Disinfectant Spray to refresh and sanitize the cloth.
  • Wipe down hard parts of the pram with a Dettol®Anti-bacterial Cleansing Surface Wipe , or, if there are a lot of them, use Dettol Anti-Bacterial Surface Cleanser to clean every part. This includes handles. Don't forget the wheels of the pram, as they can pick up a lot of dirt. If your pram has tires, consider giving them some pumps of air. If they aren't maneuvering smoothly give them a spritz of some lubricant.
  • Store your pram in a cool, dry place so that it won't get rusty, musty, or develop mould.
