    Which soap?

    Which soap would you reccommend I wash the car seat cover with? It says hand wash with mild soap. The car seat is a Vivo if that matters.

    I honestly don't know what happened it looks wet but its dry, if I find the camera I can take some pictures. He has never gotten out of the car seat with wet pants.

    Ok here are some pictures:

    I just use laundry detergent, wash it on my washer's 'hand wash' cycle and air dry it...well, I don't have that seat, but on dozens of others that's been a routine that's never failed me

    We don't have that setting on our washer, do you think it would be ok on delicate?

    Re: Which soap?

    Hmmm... that looks like a water/urine/juice/LIQUID stain that has dried. You said he has never come out of his seat with wet pants, though? Hmmm...

    I would try a "free and clear" laundry detergent on the delicate setting. OR try Woolite in the bathtub and truly hand-wash the cover.

    Since you don't have a harness in a Vivo, I guess I don't need to remind you not to wash the harness, huh?

    Yeah, delicate...just watch it, make sure it doesn't get hooked up on the agitator and possibly stretch anything out (if you've ever seen a bra get hooked on the agitator, you know what I mean...) If you have a front loader, delicate is definitely fine.
