Mildew is a living organism that thrives in moist, warm environments. When mildew starts to grow on your pram, also known as a baby stroller or buggy, you'll want to remove the fungus before it destroys the material on your pram. Having mildew in such close proximity to your baby isn't sanitary, but using chemicals to remove and kill the mildew can also affect your baby's health. Natural remedies are all that's needed to kill and remove mildew from your pram, saving you money and sparing you and your baby the chemical exposure.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Take the pram outdoors and use a stiff-bristled brush to brush off mildew spores on the surface of the pram.

  2. 2

    Mix a combination of equal parts lemon juice and table salt in a small bowl. Sponge the lemon juice mixture onto the mildew stains on your pram. Park the pram in the sun and allow the lemon juice and sun to work together to kill the mildew and bleach the stains mildew causes.

  3. 3

    Rinse the lemon juice mixture and mildew from the pram using cool water.

  4. 4

    Launder any removable and washable fabric portions of the pram in the washing machine using washing powder and hot water to ensure all mildew spores have been killed. Hang dry the fabric to ensure it doesn't shrink.

  5. 5

    Fill a bucket with hot water and 43 g (1/4 cup) washing powder. Use your scrub brush and soapy water to wash any portions of the pram that are not removable. Rinse the pram with plain water, then park it in the sun to dry completely.
