ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
Store in a cool and dry area, especially in the summer.
To avoid damaging stroller, NEVER place items on top
of stroller during storage.
Canopy, Restraint System, and Basket:
Hand wash with a soft bristle brush. Wipe out excess
water with a dry cloth and allow to dry in a shaded area.
For stubborn dirt, dilute a mild detergent with warm
water and apply directly to the dirty area. Wipe away the
detergent with a warm, damp cloth.
Stroller Frame
Briskly wipe off any mud and dirt. To clean the frame,
wipe with a damp cloth then wipe out any traces of
moisture on the frame with a dry cloth.
Excessive exposure to the sun could cause premature
color fading of stroller plastic and fabric.
Wheel Assemblies:
After prolonged normal use, the wheels of your stroller
may not swivel or turn as easily as when the stroller
was new. This is usually due to a buildup of dirt in the
swivel mechanism. Before adding lubrication, remove
the swivel wheels by pressing in the release button, then
wipe off mud and dirt. Do not use soap and water to
wash wheels. Periodically check that all screws, bolts and
nuts are tight.
Avoid lubricating the swivel wheels whenever possible.
Excessive lubrication or adding lubricant to swivel
wheels when new may cause them to develop a shimmy
or wobble that may quicken their deterioration.
Add silicone* to the wheel assemblies in small amounts.
Do not use oil-based lubricants because oil attracts dust
and would hinder the movement rather than improve it.
*Silicone spray is available at most hardware stores.
