Cleaning Your Red Oxx Bag
Cleaning your Red Oxx bag is easy.
We recommend hand washing your bag in cold water using a mild soap like Dr. Bronner's, Woolite or Dawn.
AVOID WASHING MACHINES
Washing Machine spin cycles can damage hardware or the CORDURA® fabric. Hardware may even cause damage to the wash basin of your washing machine.
Do not dry your Red Oxx bag in the a clothing machine dryer, as it will prematurely age your bag and could possibly ruin the lining. Lay flat to air-dry or hang up to drip dry.
CLEANING TOUGH STAINS
For tough stains, a nylon soft-bristle brush or soft cloth with a drop of soap works best.
REMOVING STRONG ODORS
To remove foul odors, mix one part distilled white vinegar with two parts warm water, scrub accordingly. The manufacturer brand CORDURA® recommends using a baking soda and water mix of 1/4 cup baking soda to 1 cup water. Be sure to rinse thoroughly. You may also choose to have your bag professionally dry cleaned.
AVOID HARSH CHEMICALS
Do not use harsh chemicals such as bleach to clean your bag. Harsh chemicals, solvents and cleaning agents may cause deterioration in the stitching, causing your bag to literally fall apart. Oddly enough, note that spilled toothpaste can also be a problem; immediately clean it off with a cold water rinse, then hang dry.
SCOTCHGUARD FABRIC PROTECTION
You may further protect your bag using ScotchGuard Water Shield, which will assist in resistance to oils and stains and may make your bag more water resistant (not waterproof). Watch the video demonstration on our ScotchGuard product page to see how easy it is to protect your bags from stains and improve water resistance.
