Reddit users shared a screenshot from this video and drew attention to a mistake Katey and Jed Duggar made. The original poster said, “I cannot believe he pressure washed the car seat. Car seat 101 this is a huge no no!” 

According to, car seats should not be totally soaked. The source says, “Drenching a car seat with water can cause rust in the parts along the underside of the seat, reducing the seat’s effectiveness in a crash.”

By pressure-washing the car seat, Jed likely got the straps wet too. notes, “These are made of woven threads that use tensile strength to provide just the right amount of ‘give’ in a car accident if used properly.”
