Https:// Question: How do I care and clean for my PortAbout 3/PortAbout V infant car seat? Answer: To clean pad slide the elastic loops of the seat pad off of the seat shell. Remove the harness system. Cloth pad, canopy, and head support may be machine washed separately cold water, delicate cycle, tumble dry 10-15 minutes, low heat. Wipe straps, buckles, and harness adjusters with warm damp cloth and mild soap. Air dry. NOTE: DO NOT submerge harness assembly in water. To help protect the vehicle upholstery, place a towel beneath and behind the child restraint.

I need help ASAP to make the starps bigger

Look in the back of the carseat and you should see where you can adjust the straps and then pull the length trough the front of the carseat. I don't have an evenflo, but sometimes there's a clip you can move forward to make the straps longer.

If you push down on the top of the handle you should then be able to move it. Also, to remove the straps you have to feed the bottom portion of the straps from underneath the seat up through first and then you should be able to feed through the material to remove the pad.
