    Re: cleaning the harness

    Total loss in my opinion (Been there done that)... you truly cannot clean them properly (mild wipe down with water) and get all of that mildew out of them. I would be concerned not only with the structural integrity of the webbing, but also the allergen aspect of it

    ETA: Depending on how the foam under the covers look, I might be inclined to order all new harnesses, LATCH and top tether straps if possible (and cost effective) and wash the covers...
