    How washable is a BOB jogging stroller?

    For those of you who own a BOB stroller...is ALL of the fabric (ie. seat covers, hood, etc) removable for washing? I can't seem to find the info on-line and I am considering buying a used BOB that needs a major cleaning. Good idea or bad?

    Re: How washable is a BOB jogging stroller?

    That is a good question. I have a BOB Revolution and I have never had to take the cover off. That being said I am not exactly sure how to do it. I know that the cover is bolted on. It isn't an easy removal like a BJ is.

    I read someplace that you can remove them for washing. Why don't you email their customer care (they are great BTW!) and ask. They get back to you pretty quickly.

    I haven't needed to wash my BOB yet, but I have another jogging stroller that I washed. I just took it out on the back lawn on a sunny day, and hosed it down. It took about 3 hours or so sitting in the sun to dry.

    yup you can, just have to unscrew it, but I am sure you could just hose it and scrub it, its a really durable material! probably a lot easier!

    Better than a hose: Pressure washer.

    That was a great deal for that stroller! Bummer you didn't get it.

    I have taken all the screws out and machine washed the fabric but it was super tedious taking it apart and putting it back together! I have also just hosed off all the fabric and that seemed to work just as well. A friend of mine takes hers to the do it yourself car wash and uses the high pressure hose. She says it's fantastic and super easy that way!

    Re: How washable is a BOB jogging stroller?

    Shortly after I posted, the person called me and I GOT IT! YESSS! It needed a major cleaning and something is preventing the front wheel from being placed in the "fixed" position, but other than that, it's great!!! I attempted to unscrew the entire cover, but then got "stuck" with some sort of webbing that was bolted onto the frame....so I gave up on that!
