Thread: Cleaning camera bag??

  1. #1

    Default Cleaning camera bag??

    Anybody had experience cleaning those backpack style of camera bag? I wanted to find out
    the easiest way of cleaning.

    All the method that come to my mind is to take out all the padding & dump it in the washing
    machine. Dear CS forumer please help!

    Your backpack will happily float inside the washing machine. So do you think that will work

    Wash it under tap and spin it with the washing machine. Clip up the catch and tie cloth on them prior spin.

    I just gave mine a nice scrub to remove all those dirt and stains accumulated over the years..

    Agree and wash it with running water.

    Oh, never think of floating problem, now you reminded me. Thanks.

    But clean under running water will that remove the odour of our sweat? Hmm.. maybe before
    that need to soak with soap?

    When there's too much dust, I'll throw it away and buy a new one.

    Usually it's not the dusts, it's the stains, dirt and marks.

    Usually I packed my gears in each ziploc bag before putting into the bag. Occasionally I will clean both my gears and my bag internals with baby wipes.

    Excellent answer, a tool that people don't seemed to know at all. The humble household vaccum; works to remove all dust and fibre on most surface and lens too.

    Are u aware that if your clothing got wet in full rain and you just let it dry, will smell later.
