Please share your experiences with how you wash/care for your Britax car seat covers.

I am getting ready to purchase a new seat for Tai and am fairly certain I will go with the Britax (the new Wizard, it has a denim cover, but do not know for sure the care instructions. It seems from what I have read that they recommend hand washing with their other seat covers.)

I'm a little concerned about this given how grimy the seats can get.

Thanks.
Patricia

I have a Marathon for DS and I have both handwashed the cover and washed in my front loader on the handwash cycle Do not put in the dryer!.

Both times the cover came out looking as good as new.

I have a Roundabout and I have always machine washed my cover in the gentle cycle. The manual that I got with the seat says "Covers are machine washable." But I just checked the online version and it says to hand wash. I would guess that some people probably damaged their covers by machine washing and Britax has changed the manuals in a CYA maneuver. But I have machine washed my cover tons of times on gentle and hung dry and it is showing no ill effects.

Thank you both for the feedback. I figured that gentle washing should be in the machine but just wanted to double check on others' experience.

Appreciate you taking the time to share.
