A car seat is one of the easiest parts of a vehicle to maintain--and one of the most frequently overlooked. Though your Peg Perego car seat is one of the most stylish on the market, it doesn't clean itself, so you'll want to pull it out and clean it at least once a month to keep it as stylish as the day you bought it.

Things you need
- Vinegar (optional)
Remove the car seat from the vehicle.
Turn the Peg Perego car seat upside down and gently shake it. This will help remove any small toys, pacifiers, crumbs and dirt that may have got stuck in the seat.
Remove detachable pieces. On your Peg Perego car seat, these include the bonnet and shoulder strap covers, the entire harness system and the headset cover.
Flip up the flaps that hold down the padding under the car seat cover.
Pull off the layer of padding, being sure to leave the Polystyrene layers intact and attached to the plastic.
Hand-wash the padding and seat covers using a very mild detergent mixed with lots of warm water.
Allow the covers and padding to air dry.
Wipe down all plastic parts of the seat with a damp cloth.
Replace all padding and covers once dry.
Hook the harness system back up, making sure all the straps are flat and untwisted in the front and back of the car seat.
Reinstall the Peg Perago seat in the car.
Tips and warnings
- For an inexpensive, safe and effective disinfectant, use a mixture of 50 per cent vinegar and 50 per cent water on the plastic parts. The vinegar smell will vanish once it is dry.
- Do not remove or damage the white Polystyrene pieces when you dismantle the car seat. If these are removed or severely damaged, you will need to replace the seat.
