My granddaughter's car seat was passed to me from their car and I thought UGH - it needed a bath. I have my own seats for them and keep them clean the same way. On a warm or hot day, I use the garden hose with a good spray attachment. You can take a furniture cleaning soap, liquid laundry detergent or just regular dish detergent. Rub into the car seat with a washcloth or even a little wisk broom. Then hose it off and let dry in the sun. Our 90+ temperatures now assure a quick dry.

I have also done the strollers this way. Take removable padding out that can be machine washed then use liquid Oxiclean on spots, scrub with old toothbrush, and rinse away. Make sure you tip the seats or stroller upside down to drain faster for a while. The remaining water from the seat area will drain away. If you are doing this before storing them, make sure they are dry. You can tuck a dryer sheet in with them if storing.

Does anyone know how long it would take for mildew to consume every piece of fabric material on an infant car seat when left outside during the winter?

This is a puzzle. Do you actually want this seat to rot? If so, there must be quicker ways. What am I missing?

There is no way to answer this question. What type of fabric? What is the temperature? How much moisture or rain?
