How To Maintain Your Straw Bags
- How To Clean Your Straw Bags
If you intend to keep your bag in perfect condition all year long, knowing how and how often you should clean your straw bags is extremely important.
But before the panic, cleaning a straw bag properly isn’t that difficult.
Here’s what you should do:
Step 1: Prepare Your Bag
Begin by emptying all pockets and by saying “empty,” we mean that not even one single hairpin should be left stuck in a piece of straw.
And that something, you should do whenever it is time to clean your bag.
Never, ever dunk your straw bag in water. Ever.
Step 2: Clean the Interior
We recommend to pull the fabric interior out (If possible and present), so that you can clean it from the dust and all those M&M crumbs (you can vacuum clean it, too).
Colored straw bags may be sprayed with dyes that are easily removed during cleaning and repair. To test your handbag’s colorfastness, gently wipe it with a wet rag. Choose a tiny spot on the inside edge or bottom of the bag for testing.
Step 3: Start Cleaning the Exterior
Moisten a white cloth (why white? so that it cannot leave any color stain on your straw bag), and start gently wiping the bag.
If your bag is really dirty, use at least two different cloths.
To keep your bag’s shape while you clean, stuff your straw bag with old t-shirts or paper before cleaning or repairing.
Step 4: Kill the Stain!
If a simple moist cloth is not enough to remove the dust, take another piece of moist cloth and add few drops of baby shampoo or dish detergent on it, creating a soapy mixture that will kill even the most obstinate stains.
To rid of a persistent yet extremely small stain, use a soapy cotton swab or a toothbrush to rub on the stain!
Step 5: Dry Your Straw Bag
Let your bag air-dry completely away from the heat and the sunlight before using it again.
- How To Brighten Up The Color Of You Straw Bag?
Now that your bag is completely clean, you may want to brighten up its rich color.
To do it, just take a darker cloth soaked with alcohol-diluted water, and start polishing the straw and watch your straw bag turns into a hot newly purchased item.
- How To Store You Straw Bag?
You should clean your straw bag twice a year (unless you dropped an entire glass of wine on it) before you plan to use it frequently, and before you are about to store it in your wardrobe because you know you won’t use it for a moment.
When storing your straw bag in the wardrobe, most importantly, never store it in a plastic bag, because this woven, natural material needs to breathe! Also, don’t hang it, but just lay it on its side.
Instead, stuff it with tissue paper to keep its shape and store it in a cotton tote bag or a pillowcase.
Ideally, keep your makeup in a sealed waterproof bag within your straw bag when you’re using it.
