    I just dump mine inside the washing machine like I do with my clothes. Put Downy at the last rinse.

    After 10+ years, I washed my F2 the 1st time, recently. Decided to wash it as I need to wash my F-803 which was laden with volcanic ash from a recent trip. Just throw them in the washing machine.

    Sometimes I wipe it down and sun it or put it into the washing machine and sun it.... Its really irritating if its too dirty

    wash my crumpler twice... they get dirty very easily, likewise for those nat geo bags ...

    you sure anot bro?

    later the protective layers will deteriorate and the foams inside will loose their rigidness...

    i am using lowepro mini trekker aw (backpacks).

    i think just pour in a bit of dettol in less than half a bucket of water and soak the towel in it then twist the towel dry before using it to wipe the bag. After that then just leave the bag to air-dry indoor.

    Yup. I've had my bag(s) for close to 2 years already. Everything's still intact. No signs of deterioration whatsoever, especially my Think Tank.
