The Orbit Baby Toddler Car Seat upholstery can be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Washing inside a pillowcase and in a frontloading washer is recommended. DO NOT USE BLEACH.
Lay the upholstery flat to dry. Do not machine dry. Machine drying may cause extensive shrinkage and result in the upholstery not fitting the car seat properly.
Reinstall the upholstery once it is completely dried.
Metal and plastic parts on the car seat and SmartHub® Base may be wiped clean with mild soap and water. Towel dry. Do not use household detergents, such as bleach or abrasive agents. Detergents can weaken plastic parts and corrode metal parts.
Shoulder straps: The shoulder straps may be spot cleaned with a mild soap and water solution and towel dried. DO NOT immerse the shoulder harness in water. Doing so may weaken them. If the harness is still heavily soiled after spot cleaning, contact Orbit Baby for further instructions. Do not disassemble the restraint harness.
Adjuster lock and strap: Periodically check the adjuster lock to be sure it is clean and free of food, coins, dirt, and other objects. If debris is present, it must be removed to prevent interference with the adjuster mechanism. Brush away loose debris and sponge clean using warm water and mild soap. Towel dry. Do not use solvents or abrasive cleaners. Do not separate the adjuster strap from the adjuster lock.
Crotch buckle and buckle tongues: If a child eats and drinks in the car seat, the crotch buckle and buckle tongues should be periodically checked and cleaned of any accumulated debris or liquids. The crotch buckle may be cleaned with a damp cloth or removed and thoroughly rinsed with warm water. Towel dry. Test the crotch buckle by fastening and unfastening until a positive click is heard when inserting the buckle tongues. If a click is not heard, repeat the cleaning procedure. Do not use lubricants, solvents, abrasive cleaners, soap or other household detergents on the crotch buckle or buckle tongues.
SmartHub®, rotational check mechanism & hub locks: Keep the entire bottom hub area, and the hub locks specifically, clean and free of foreign material in order for the car seat to function properly. Keep the SmartHub® Base’s SmartHub and rotational indicators clean and free of foreign material. Do not allow any liquids or particulate matter (such as sand or soil) to enter any of these areas.
