Bag care and cleaning

Post by AdAstra » 02 Aug 2015 05:56

Hi all.

What methods of cleaning your footbags have you found to be safe and effective? I have a bag for outdoor play and it's gotten quite dirty and I'm not sure how to safely clean it. I think mine is made of synthetic suede, an Eclipse 32 panel.

Room temperature water, liquid hand soap. Let the water in, then very slowly and carefully squeeze the water out. Do that until the water from the bag isn't black anymore.

Some people just throw them in a washing machine along their clothes, I can't recommend it though.
I hate bad form and I'm a hypocrite.

I don't know anyone that does this. I've heard of putting them in the pocket of pants and then putting them in the washing machine, but have never done it myself.

I always just hand wash in the sink, with either dish soap or small amount of liquid laundry detergent. I have had an issue with warmer water ruining the color on a black/white bag I had. Just be gentle with them and you wont have any issues with torn stitches

I put them in a sock knot that close and put it in the washing machine from time to time.
After dirty sessions I hand wash them with dish soap, but hand soap should be fine as well.
