Get Your Baby Car Seat Cleaned At Baby Mode's Melbourne Superstore

So when was the last time you pulled apart your babys car seat or childs boost to clean it? 

Did you know that your baby’s car seat is crawling with bacteria from food, juice, milk and other substances that hide in seat fabric, seams and crevices. As your child spends a fair amount of time in their car seat, other things that add to the seat unhygienic state are sweating on sunny days, baby vomits, and just grubby toddler hands in general.

Don’t worry, we think that’s gross too and are here to help. According to a recent study, we really should be worries because what we’re putting our child into each day during our drive from A to B is rather disgusting.

UK Website Leasing Options tested areas in the family car to see what ranked as the most unhygienic part of the car. While the steering wheel, hand brake, gear stick, centre console, and radio registered between 10-20 Level of Detection (LOD) for bacteria, the child’s car seat registered a massive 3,000 LOD.

Check out the pictures from the study below:

According to the study, the main bacteria found on the child’s car seat was ‘faecal streptococci’. If your child comes in contact with this bacteria they are at risk of catching nasties like bacterial pneumonia, ear infections and bacterial meningitis.
