Hauck Rapid 3: Is there a possibility to remove and wash the hood?

Alina • 27 Aug 2023


I have a Hauck 3 Rapid stroller. I want to clean the canopy in the washing machine. I managed to detach the canopy from the stroller, but I can't get it off from the 3 metal bars it comes attached to. Is there even this possibility?

Thank you.

Hey, Alina,

No, the hood is not supposed to be removed nor washed in the washing machine - it can get damaged and also fade. The stroller is meant to be handwasged only.

Here's a stroller cleaning and maintenance guide if you'd need any tips.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
