Bugaboo Spa Services at Babesta: Before & After (insert whistle here)
We might just be Bugaboo's biggest fans, because their buggies are so solidly made. So much so, in fact, we're seeing families using them for three kids in a row – from bassinet to toddler seat to wheeled board and back again.
After the second or third kid has done his tour, though, it might be time for a little sprucing up. At Babesta, we offer a "light cleaning" (frame and spot cleaning), as well as a 'Stroller Spa Menu" from which you can pick what you'd like to update. Check out our before and afters!

If you're going to do it at home, here are some home cleaning tips, straight from Bugaboo:
To clean the fabric of your stroller, please remove any removable parts, such as the foam, wood, shoulder straps, plastic slats, etc. in the fabric. Then you can wash them with cold water on gentle cycle with a mild detergent. I would use the baby's laundry detergent or Dreft to be safe. Then hang dry the items. Do not place in dryer! This will shrink the fabric.
To clean the foam on the stroller, please use a sponge, warm water and liquid soap. Then gently rub the area that needs to be cleaned. Please do not use a paper towel. The white fibers of the paper towel will be come embedded in the foam if you use this.
To clean the frame we recommend using a damp sponge or washcloth and just wipe it down. Please take a dry cloth and wipe off any water so that nothing starts rusting. Apply petroleum jelly on any of the rivets to prevent them from rusting and the silicone spray is to be used so that it doesn’t start to squeak and so that it moves smoothly. Please spray at the release tabs for the handle bar, and then follow this down to the black circular parts. Here you will find holes in the black circles, spray inside these holes and then spray the edges. These black circular parts rub against one another when opening and closing the stroller, therefore we should keep them well lubricated.
To clean the wheels you can use water to clean the dirt off of the exterior & we also recommend pulling out any hair, twigs, etc… that get caught. Try using a can of compressed air to remove dirt and dust from under the wheel casing.
