Dustbusting A Stroller Doesn't Really Work

Baby Bubbles gets gear clean. For real.

Someone needs to produce a Dateline special on stroller grime. Blech. In the meantime, Baby Bubbles is on a mission to de-grossify baby gear. The new service was created by UES parents Seth and Kimberly Mittman, who clean all kinds of gear (strollers, high chairs, car seats) with made-for-babies solutions like Dreft and BuggyLOVE.


Choose the basic package for a vacuum, frame wipe-down, and sanitizing/disinfecting (from $35); the standard package adds on a steam clean and nooks and crannies detailing (from $55); and the deluxe package includes all said cleaning services plus stain removal and a wheels scrub ‘n shine (from $75).


They'll pick up and drop off the gear at your apartment. Basic and standard jobs get same-day service (7-8am pickup, returned 4-5pm); deluxe cleanings require 24 hours to let the stain remover work its magic (7-8am pickup, returned the same time the next day). There’s no extra charge for walk-ups and non-doorman buildings, and all of Manhattan is in the service zone. Call 646.286.9676 or email babybubblesnyc@gmail.com to set up an appointment; online scheduling is in the works. Prices for toys are available upon request.
