    Who's Done It?

    I am looking for advise on cleaning my range bag. I don't mean cleaning it out. I mean washing it. Mine got really dirty and I need to throw it in the washer. But not sure if that is a good idea or even realistic. When I did a quick search everything was setting it up or organizing. I need to know if it is ok to just throw it in the washer. My bag is fairly large and heavy nylon and/or canvas. (I have 2 that need cleaned). Can anyone advise if this is a good idea or if there is a better idea or way to clean it.

    I wasn't sure where to post this question and I hope this is the right forum.

    Thanks in advance for any and all advise.

    If it's pretty oily, it would be a good opportunity to put a turbo on the pressure washer. And don't forget the safety glasses. Safety first.

    If you're iffy about your home washing machine and what your better half may say - you can go to a laundry mat and do it there.

    Or, I'd probably get a scrub brush, dish soap, a bucket of warm water, and the hose. Then I'd sit on another upturned bucket and scrub. Then let it dry in the sun.

    That method will be easier on all the joints/seams/hardware than a washer + it'll actually SCRUB the crud off.

    I have dirt, dog hair and melted deodorant to get out of the weave/fibers.

    ^^ Here's your winner

    No it's not as easy as a machine, but he's right. There's just too much agitation on the seams and not enough between the threads.

    Plus this option will let you use some more aggressive chemicals (not TOO aggressive, maybe simple green ) if needed. Quality dish soap and a brush should get the job done.
    Be sure to try it out on a smaller spot for colorfastness (if that's important) and deterioration. Nylon and canvas will have different reactions.

    Either hand wash it OR...take it to the car wash, put it in the mat holders and then brush/wand it. I would not put it in a machine.

    A range bag is a little hot to travel in, but at least the dog was wearing deodorant.

    Things like backpacks, bags, etc I use the bathtub, brushes, etc like TF suggested. a fingernail brush or the like works wonders to get grime out of the fibers.

    100% agree on a brush and a garden hose with whatever soap you feel like. I wouldn't risk it in a washing machine.
