    Default Cleaning Of Lowepro Nova 2 AW Bag.

    I got a used Lowepro Nova 2 AW bag.
    The bag got some dust on it.
    Fell like washing it or shall I use a damp cloth to wipe it?

    If the bag will get really dirty in future, can I just wash it?

    How you guys clean your lowepro bag if it get really dirty?
    Thanks.

    I vacuum the bag first, and use damp cloth to clean it, interior and exterior.

    Throw away the bag after using it for a few years if I find the interior nylon material become sticky.

    Hope this help.

    I think it should be ok to wash it, if you really hv to. I've washed my Mini Trekker, so far so good. Remove the inner compartments before washing and allow at least 4 days to dry it. This is just my experience. Hope this helps.
