Like a car or bike, strollers are susceptible to salt-water damage. If you use the stroller near or on the beach, it’s very important that you give some extra TLC to maintain your stroller.
Here are our recommendations to make sure you keep it in top shape:
- Always store your stroller in a clean, dry place. Don’t store it in a shed or exposed area.
- Avoid any salt-water exposure. Beach use is OK, but don’t take the stroller through any salt water streams, puddles etc.
- After any walks on the beach, perform a service immediately when you get home (it takes 1-2 mins).
- You can clean rust off the rivets with a damp cloth and Jif. Rub the rivet with the Jif rag, then wipe clean with another rag. Leave to dry overnight and spray the rivets with some clear lacquer $12.98 available from Bunnings -https://www.bunnings.co.nz/rust-oleum-2x-ultra-cover-340g-semi-gloss-clear_p00265626 This protects the rivets from air and salt exposure.
