Once a baby becomes a toddler and wants to walk everywhere, we tend to pack items like the stroller away in the garage. When baby No. 2 comes along, we retrieve the stroller for use again only to discover mildew stains on the fabric. Mildew contains living spores which can be harmful and must be eradicated before the stroller is used. Household items and cleaning products will kill the mildew spores and prevent further growth.

  1. 1

    Mix 1/2 cup white vinegar, 3 tsp baking soda and a few squirts of lemon juice in a small bucket. The vinegar will kill the mildew spores and prevent further growth. The ingredients are all-natural, non-toxic cleaning agents that are not harmful to a baby.

  2. 2

    Pour the cleaning solution into a clean, empty, spray bottle.

  3. 3

    Brush the excess mildew off the stroller fabric with the scrubbing brush.

  4. 4

    Spray the cleaning solution onto the mildew-stained fabric on the stroller.

  5. 5

    Wipe away the mildew with the terry cloth. Wring out the terry cloth with cold water and wipe the stroller fabric to clean off any residue.

  6. 6

    Leave the stroller to dry for an hour.

Tips and warnings

  • Clean the stroller outdoors and allow the fabric to dry naturally.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after cleaning.
