How Do I Clean My Custom Bags?

Cleaning your branded bag on a regular basis can protect both your bag and its contents. How you clean your bag depends on what sort of bag it is and the material used in its construction, but there are a few general things to do before washing any bag.

cleaning products

  • Make sure bag is empty before washing.

  • If possible, spot clean the stained area rather than washing the entire bag.

  • Make sure your bag is completely dry before using it.

  • Check any tag on your bag for cleaning instructions.


Cleaning Branded Calico Bags

Calico is a cotton fabric, and so can be machine washed on a gentle cycle and hung up to dry. If your bag wrinkles during this procedure, you can simply iron them after cleaning on a cotton setting.

How To Clean Canvas Bags

It is possible to wash your canvas bag in a machine, but we do not recommend this method without double-checking that your bag's label says 'machine washable' before trying. The preferred way of cleaning a canvas bag is hand washing and air drying.

Cleaning Non-Woven Fabric Bags

Non-woven fabric bags can be wiped clean with a damp cloth. They are not suitable for machine washing under any circumstance.

How To Clean Printed Nylon Bags

Wipe bag with a cloth dipped in warm, soapy water. Nylon threads are not very absorbant, so stains can usually be removed by soaking the bag in soapy water, rinsing and drying.

Cleaning Custom Polyester Bags

Machine wash in cold water on gentle cycle and hang upside down to air dry.

Cleaning Personalised Leather Bags

Some of our products are made entirely of leather. You should never machine wash leather. Instead, you can clean leather products with a soft, damp cloth. If your bag contains both leather and cloth elements, we suggest you wipe both.
