CANVAS CLEANING PROCESS
THINGS YOU WILL NEED
- Soft Bristle Brush
- Large Bowl/Bucket
- Clean Cloth
SECURE LID AND STRAPS
Secure lid and straps so they are not in the way and clear space for cleaning. This will allow you to see all areas of the bag and identify area that need to be cleaned.
(Protect leather from this cleaning process. Leather has a separate process)
REMOVE SURFACE DIRT
Scrub soiled spot or spots with soft bristle brush or non-abrasive object, to loosen dirt particles and use a dry soft bristle brush to brush off remaining particles.
MIX CLEANING SOLUTION
Mix any mild laundry detergent without bleach, dish washing soap or body wash, with water. For every cup of water, use a ½ teaspoon of detergent. Use the brush to mix solution until bubbles form.
Using the brush, work the cleaning solution into the fabric in a circler motion. Do not use too much pressure while scrubbing because it may damage the canvas.
SOAK & WIPE
Allow the cleaning solution to soak for 20-30 minutes. Then wipe with a damp clean cloth.
Allow the canvas to dry naturally in the sun or an uncovered area.
LEATHER CLEANING PROCESS
- Ensure that any other adjacent material such as canvas is clear from cleaning process.
- Gently remove dirt particles from leather by using a clean cloth or soft bristle brush.
- Treat with leather conditioning cream to remove minor scratches, scuffs and abrasions. We recommend trying cream on small discreet area before applying to entire surface.
- Wipe cream clear with clean cloth.
