Many have commented that the chair pad is not removable for washing, but it is! Super easy, too-- after undoing some hooks, you get the strap that you use to fold it up and unhook the belt from the black metal piece! Graco should have done some instructions for it because it's really so easy! Great high chair-- small, folds up, washable, and easy to wipe off in between washings! The basket underneath is also great for toys, bibs, etc!
