Britax Convertible Car Seat Fabric Comparison: Nanotex vs SafeWash 2019

What comes to mind when you think of Britax Convertible Car Seats?

It’s probably safety. And if that’s the case, you’re totally right. These USA-made seats consistently deliver the gold standard in safety, delivering peace of mind to millions of parents.

But another word that comes to our minds is practicality. Of course your #1 priority is the safety of your child, but if a piece of baby gear can make your life a little bit easier while also being super safe, it’s a total win-win.

First, their revolutionary ClickTight system made installing their convertible car seats a total breeze. But a parent’s qualms with car seats don’t end with its installation. What happens when the inevitable blowouts, spills, crumbs, and all-around grossness occur? Enter the Nanotex and SafeWash Collections.


So what’s the difference?

The Nanotex Collection is named after the stain-, moisture-, and odor-resistant fabric with which it’s made. And it definitely holds up to its promise. Before the Nanotex Collection was unveiled, Britax was kind enough to send us some samples of the fabric, so we put it to the test! Check it out in the video below.


We love the innovation and practicality of the Britax Nanotex Collection. But, admittedly, you have to sacrifice a bit of breathability to get a fabric that deflects moisture that well. So if you live in a very warm climate, the seat might get a bit sweaty.

Now enter the latest collection: SafeWash. If you purchase a convertible car seat from the Nanotex Collection and a serious mess happens, you’re able to remove the fabric and machine wash it, but to maintain the quality and safety of the fabric, you’re only able to line dry it. And sometimes you don’t have time to wait that long. But the Britax SafeWash Collection is exactly what it sounds like: fabrics that are completely safe to be machine washed AND machine dried! So though the SafeWash fabrics don’t deflect messes as well, they’ll still save you lots of time by throwing them in the dryer.

We’ve think they’ve got this practicality thing down pretty well.

It’s also important to note that both of these collections are only available at specialty retailers like Magic Beans!
