Let’s face it: Messes happen. If you spend a lot of time in the car, your little one’s car seat is prime real estate for smushed crackers, sticky juice and dare we say, leaky diapers. So, whether you’re already elbows deep in disinfectant or here to arm yourself with the knowledge of deep cleans for future emergencies, you’ve come to the right place. No one wants their little one sitting in a dirty car seat, but they can be tricky to clean properly.
