last monday, was having a short break at kopitiam with my family. mu mom accidently poured a full cup of hot coffee on my lowepro slingshot200 with my 350D, 100-400L,28-105,kenko 2x,sigma super Dg500, 50mm 1.8 and 2 piece of 1GB CF card ,8Gb MD +++
my heart sank as i saw the coffee poured directly on it. i thought my gears sure gone case as I did not put the AW cover on. quickly wipe off whatever coffee I can with a hanky. took a quick peek inside and was relief to see no stain inside. quickly rush home (luckily was near my house liao) and quickly taqke out all the content from the bag. Throw bad aside and inspect the items one by one from the most expensive. Heng, no damage done. wipe the gear (usual pratice not due to coffee stain or whatever) and keep in Dri cabi.
Now what should I do with the bag? 1st I tried to use wet towel to clean the bag. No use, coffee smell still there. Then I rinse it with water and use my Osim Icology to steam and clean it. hang to dry. The water in the vacumm cleaner look like coffee. Next day still got a bit of coffee smell. repeat the steam and vacumm process. last night no more smell.
Now the big question. what would you do if your mom poured coffee on yr gears and damage them? cannot be angry or mad right?
