    Anyone wash a ProSport cover yet?

    DD2 spilled her drink yesterday in her carseat. Now it *must* be washed, according to her.
    So, before I take it apart any tricks I should know? I don't want to hurt the cover like I did the first time I took a RN cover off

    TIA

    Nope, haven't done it. Interested to hear if YOU have any tips. LOL.
    Down to just a spare Radian, folded in the hall closet for my Godbaby.

    Just make sure you handwash it. I threw our vivo cover in the washer and it ruined it. The color all rubbed off and it looked awful. Recaro doesn't offer replacement covers for the vivo, so when I called, Gayle was nice enough to dig one up, but I don't know how many they have.

    Re: Anyone wash a ProSport cover yet?

    I washed mine a couple of weeks ago, thanks to an incident involving a tube of yogurt and a certain 3 year old who shall remain nameless!

    I washed it in the machine (front loader) normal cycle with cold water and line dried it. No issues whatsoever! It cleaned up really nicely.

    *I meant to add that it came off and went back on really easily. Much more user friendly than any of the SK seats!

    That's how I washed our vivo cover. It sounds like the quality of their covers has improved.

    Re: Anyone wash a ProSport cover yet?

    I'm not sure if it matters or not, but I threw in some other dirty things in the wash with it to keep it full and balanced. I thought it would give it less of a chance to rub on something during a spin cycle. Not sure if that helped or if they have improved the covers, but it came out just fine! I only wash my covers when they get something on them that can't be just wiped off. I do get a little nervous that the washer will wreck them but so far so good with all of my seats. I'm not a fan of hand washing anything.

    I washed my ProSport cover a few weeks ago with some towles, on gentle cycle (regular top loader), and it came out perfect!
