Bag Care Tips

Washing & Drying

  1. Hand-washing: All of our totes and bags can be hand-washed in cold water with a mild detergent -- avoid any scrubbing action as it could cause 'fraying'. Totes/Bags with metallic-based colours (silver, gold, copper, high gloss black) should only be washed by hand to avoid scuffing/damaging the metallic surface.
  2. Solo Machine-washing: Bags/Totes WITHOUT any metallic-based colours are machine-washable on their own in cold water, on gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Solo machine-washing, or washing it on its own, prevents premature wear and potential 'fraying' that could result from the bag repeatedly rubbing against any other articles being washed.
  3. Hang Drying is Best: Neoprene itself is naturally water resistant so it's really only the blended fabric on the surface of the neoprene, rope handles, stitching, etc. that will need a little time to dry. Hanging your bag will help it dry more quickly and uniformly -- typically in 3-5 hours or less depending on conditions. Resume use once completely dry.

The DO NOT List

  1. Do NOT use bleach.
  2. Do NOT tumble dry or put in dryer.
  3. Do NOT iron.
  4. AVOID contact with any other HOT surfaces like hair straighteners, curling irons, blow dryers, etc. as neoprene is heat sensitive and can melt when in contact with such hot surfaces. Let any hot items cool completely prior to placing in or on your neoprene tote/bag.
