HOW TO CLEAN YOUR CHROME BAG


There are two types of people in this world: those who pridefully wear their Chrome bag with years of history and grime - and those who want to (or need to) keep their Chrome bag clean. This post is for the latter. 

Do you remember that new bag smell when you first got your Chrome bag? Or the pristine condition it was in when it first entered your life? Yes? No? Maybe so? Has your current Chrome bag seen some serious sh*t over the years or have you spilled something in, on, or around your bag and need to get it out? Let us hold your hand and show you how to make your bag new again. We'll be using our Citizen Messenger Bag to demonstrate.


WHAT YOU NEED
  • Spray bottle with a gentle solvent (Simple Green or similar)
  • Dish soap (any brand will do)
  • Plastic tub, large sink, or bathtub
  • Nylon brush

STEP 1

Fill your tub with warm water and dish soap

Step 7

Use towel to dry any metal parts - including your metal buckle

STEP 8

Use a lubricant to clean your metal buckle after cleaning. The inner mechanism of the metal buckle should be lubed with either a mineral oil or Tri-Flow. Apply sparingly - less is more - in the opening of the buckle. Wipe away any excess so you don't stain your bag or clothing. You're welcome.


THINGS TO NEVER EVER USE OR DO

DO NOT put Chrome bag in the washing machine! It will twist and pull and make materials unhappy! DO NOT put Chrome bag in the dryer! It will also make materials unhappy - including the tarp liner! DO NOT use chlorine or bleach based cleaners!
