THE TOP 4 WAYS TO CARE FOR YOUR DAGNE
If you love your bag, it’ll love you back. Here are a few ways to show it some love.
1. Keep it shady. Don’t overexpose your bag to light, heat, or water.
2. Alcohol, acetone, and oil are way harsh solvents. Instead, use a gentle soap to hand wash your bag.
3. Lighter colors don’t camouflage stains as well as darker colors, so use a touch more care with them.
4. And finally, when you’re not using your bag, store it in the dust bag. Bags need their beauty rest too.
A DEEPER DIVE INTO MATERIAL CARE
All of your burning care questions, answered.
Neoprene is mostly chill but still deserves some love and attention.
Neoprene can be hand washed in cold water with gentle soap. Reshape when wet. Lay flat to dry.
Alcohol, acetone, and oil are really bad for neoprene, so avoid at all costs. Don’t machine wash because the hardware might chip. Hardware should also be handled with care. Creasing and pilling may occur but is easily remedied. Just steam in downward strokes, and use a fabric shaver to remove pilling.
Be cautious when wearing denim and other dark fabrics, as they can transfer onto the lighter colored bags.
Don’t overexpose to light, heat, or water, and not sure why you would, but don’t rub the material excessively.
It’s pretty easy to care for neoprene, just refer to this cheat sheet.
