    For me simple, wash with MAMA LEMON and soaked in water......then out into sun and followed by spin in cloth drying machine and lastly use the hair dryer.

    Washing machine. If it can't take the machine, it's not pro grade.

    btw, remember to take out the camera, lenses and any other contents in your bag before put it into the washing machine.

    no need to wash one. the dirtiest it is, the more pro you are. if your bag looks like new, people can tell you are a newbie. my bag 10 years liao, even got vomit on it.

    Hardly need to wash, but if do wash, will spin dry if possible then use hair dryer to warm up (low heat, very high speed), and then hang up for several days in an airy area AWAY from the sun to avoid fabric degradation.

    Don't forget proper UV protection!

    Actually, most of the time, only need a very light damp cloth wipe and blow dry/airing.

    I guess my bag is not the only one that got vomit on it, but I washed it anyway.. all that baby milk gets rather smelly after a while.
