Seller's Note/ Yes, I know it's not a wheelchair. The backstory is that many years ago we had member whose young daughter was confined to the same. She was delighted when he gave her a similar issue and told her, "Even the Goddess of Fortune sat in a wheelchair, sweetheart." Awe... Yeah, I know it's sappy but I would have liked to have been there to see her smile.

As for cleaning, just soft dirt, DW soaks, hand-held tools, etc.. Even a shoemaker can clean this one! :-)
