Our Step-by-Step Cleaning Guide For Your UPPAbaby Stroller


Step 1: Begin with the frame.

A stroller’s frame is its foundation, and as with any foundation, care is paramount. Using a damp cloth and a mild detergent, wipe down the frame to clear away any dirt and residue, then dry thoroughly. If beach outings are part of your adventures, a quick rinse with fresh (tap) water will ensure any remaining salt water is washed off. Be sure to not use abrasives as they may scratch your stroller frame!


Step 2: Wash the fabric.

For little marks, a spot-clean is all you need, but when the entire fabric carries memories of the day, treat it to a gentle hand wash with mild detergent. Once it’s cleansed, lay it flat in a shaded spot to dry, so that the fabric retains its original vibrant hue.


Step 3: Make sure your stroller is dry.

Water can be harmful when it comes to storing your stroller. To ensure your stroller’s long-lasting durability, always make sure that all parts are perfectly dry before storing, and avoid exposure to direct sunlight while it’s not in use. Storing your product in a cool, dry space is crucial for preventing mold and preserving the stroller’s structural integrity.


Step 4: Make routine checks for a smooth, safe ride.

It is important to Inspect your stroller periodically, watching for wear or damage. Tighten any loose parts and check the harnesses and safety locks for optimal functionality. If something seems amiss, address it promptly. If something doesn’t look right and you are unsure of what to do, speaking with one of our Customer Experience representatives or bringing your stroller into one of UPPAbaby’s Hub Service Centers is the best option.
