    Cleaning a Messenger Bag

    Ok, first of all, I searched the threads under "cleaning cordura" and nothing came up. So Im asking it now...

    How and what do you clean your bags with. Mine looks like its been sitting in poo for awhile. Any tips/advice/methods?

    Mine can definitly use a good clean.

    Thanks

    I just throw it in the washer, wrap the buckle in a sock to keep the noise down
    I've been here since 2004? I've never felt this old before.

    Bad karma to wash your bag.

    Just let the rain clean it off.

    that's my method...when it's really bad (grease stains) I use some soiLove and an old toothbrush beforehand.
