If like us, your car seats need a bloody good clean, then hopefully this little step-by-step tutorial will help show you how to remove the covers from an Axkid Minikid carseat!
We were recently given the opportunity to test the Axkid Wolmax seats (review pending) and so thought we’d give the Minikid seat (tested here and used ever since!) covers a wash.
The might not look too bad from far away…
But close up… Urgh. Trust me.
It’s very easy to remove the Axkid Minikid seat from the car. The tethers unclip, and the seatbelt unfastens, and out it comes. It means it’s pretty easy to put back in too, as the tethers stay in place. Hurrah.
It’s probably worth cleaning the car too at this point. Yurgh.
The seats are quite heavy so take them to a room where you can set them down on the floor.
Start at the bottom of the seat at the front.
The covers are held to the bottom of the seat with a plastic clip underneath the fabric.
|With plastic clip underneath|
As you can see from the last image, I’ve prized the plastic clip up with a knife and then in a very unscientific way, pulled it until the teeth were free, and removed the clip. Make sure you set the clip aside somewhere safe.
Next, turn your attention to the back, and unzip it.

You can then peel the covers from the bottom upwards.
The covers are fixed into place by a rod running through the covers just below the headrest, this keeps the covers taught. Give this a wiggle and a pull and it will pop out. Remove the plastic rod and place somewhere safe.
And voila, one naked Axkid Minikid car seat.
