How To Clean Your Bag

How To Clean Your Bag

Forgotten fruit, leaked drinks, stinky food, and commuting mud don’t need to spoil your bag. Your Crumpler is easy to clean with warm soapy water and some elbow grease. The key to keeping your bag looking fresh and smelling like a bag is cleaning swiftly after it’s dirtied.

If you’re caught in a downpour of rain on your ride to work, wipe off the muck and mud before it dries to save yourself a serious scrub. If a banana turns fugitive and is mushed inside your bag, turn your bag inside out and wipe it down before it festers. If you’re confronted with a smelly beast of a bag, clean the offending areas and use a eucalyptus spray to neutralise the stink.

Throughout your adventures together your bag will grow character but it doesn’t need to grow bacteria too. Cleaning your bag is not a fine science; keep it clean so you can keep it looking mean. More useful information on cleaning your bag.

Versatile Bags

Our bags are purpose built but thrive on versatility. What you pack and how you use your bag is restricted only by your imagination. Barneys take trips in cars, planes and boats; they carry work folders, groceries, gym gear, cut flowers, tins of spam, and cold beer; they serve as awesome makeshift eskies and can even safely contain a hyperactive working-dog named Sgt. Pepper and that’s just the tip of the tail.

The Barney is a finely tuned bike messenger bag forged in the rough laneways of Melbourne’s courier scene but your creative genius brings its infinite uses to life. Grab a Crumpler and take it for a walk. Our bags can handle whatever you throw at and into them. Lifetime loyalty, guaranteed.
