How To Clean The Outside of Soft LuggageUpdated 3 months ago

Keeping the exterior of a suitcase or soft luggage clean is crucial for maintaining its appearance and extending its lifespan. Follow these steps to ensure your suitcase stays fresh and ready for your adventure.

Begin by getting rid of any dirt or debris on the surface of the suitcase. Use a brush with bristles or a damp cloth to wipe away dust and particles, paying attention to the seams, zippers and pockets.

For stains or tougher dirt create a weak mixture of soap and water. Dip a clean. sponge into the soapy solution and gently scrub the affected areas. Avoid using chemicals or abrasive cleaners that could harm the fabric.

Thoroughly wipe the suitcase with clean water and a damp cloth to eliminate any soap residue. Make sure you wipe down all surfaces, including handles and wheels. Wring the cloth out well before wiping, removing as much liquid as possible.

Allow the suitcase to air dry completely before storing it or using it again. It's important to let it dry in an area to prevent any sun damage.

If there are care instructions provided by the manufacturer for cleaning your suitcase make sure you follow those guidelines to avoid voiding any warranties.

Regular maintenance and proper cleaning will not keep your suitcase looking fantastic but also help it withstand travels challenges for many years ahead.
