How to a clean suitcase


Just imagine how far your suitcase goes during the trip. No less interesting than you. How many hands touch it, in what corners it was lying. Never thought? But in vain.

It is not surprising that sometimes with it there are various unpleasant incidents. We will tell you how to neutralize their consequences.

General cleaning

The suitcase must be cleaned periodically, even if there are no noticeable dirt.

How to clean a leather suitcase
The first thing you should learn when cleaning: never vacuum the surface. There will be scratches. And no excessive amount of liquid-the suitcase may swell. The duster must be semi-wet.
Wipe the surface with a dry soft cloth. Use an old toothbrush for hard-to-reach places and corners.
Then take a leather cleaner (you can also use it for leather sofas) and use a soft cloth to clean the outside of the suitcase. If the suitcase is suede, use a suede cleaner, only in this case you will need a rubber brush. To refresh your suitcase and protect it from scuffs, treat it with a skin conditioner.

How to clean a fabric suitcase

Your best friend is a foaming upholstery cleaner. You can find it in a car or furniture store. Apply the foam, clean brush, and then vacuumed. Wash plastic parts with soapy water and a soft cloth or sponge (but with the soft side). Open all the zippers on the suitcase and leave it to dry.

Cleaning the plastic suitcase

Add and stir half a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid in water. Dampen and wring out a rag from microfiber. Wipe the suitcase, especially hard where dirt has accumulated. Don’t forget to change the water.


What will be useful:

disinfecting wipes
Germs are everywhere. Again, your suitcase saw a lot of things during its journey and many hands squeezed it. If you look at its surface under a microscope, the picture will look like a horror movie. The first thing you should do when you get your Luggage is wipe the handle, wheels, and bottom with disinfectant wipes. Or better, just the whole suitcase. Don’t skimp on napkins.

You can take it for ozone treatment if we really scared you.

How to get rid of bad smell in a suitcase
And sometimes it happens that a suitcase is released, and it smells like you were transporting durian (by the way, maybe) or a mouse ended its days in it. Airing on the balcony didn’t help.

What will be useful:

soda/coal/vinegar / spray neutralizer;
vacuum cleaner with a nozzle for upholstered furniture or for cracks;

Option 1: add a tablespoon of soda to the water and use a spray gun to treat the suitcase inside. After an hour, thoroughly vacuum.
Option 2: buy coal from a pet store, put it in a sock and leave it in a closed suitcase for a day or two.
Option 3: mix vinegar with water in a ratio of 1: 5 and treat the suitcase with a spray gun. Be prepared to air out on the balcony for a few days afterwards.
Option 4: the easiest way is to spray it to remove odors.
To keep your things always fresh, put a scented bag in your bag. Just make sure that the smell suits you. No rose scents if you are allergic to flowers.

How to remove mold on a suitcase

Yes, it’s been a while since you’ve been on vacation. Here is a suitcase saddened and covered with mold. And mold goes only to cheeses, and even then not all.

Don’t rush to throw your suitcase away. There are options.

What will be useful:

vinegar based on white grapes;
soft cloth;
medical mask.
For business:

It is important to clean in an open space, so either on the balcony or in the yard, while the neighbors do not see. Put on a medical mask and wipe the suitcase with a wet (not wet!) rag.
Pour the vinegar into a spray bottle and treat the surface. Let it soak in for a few minutes and wipe with a soft, damp cloth.
Leave an open bag or suitcase to air out on the balcony. You can do it in the yard if you trust your neighbors. At first, the suitcase will give off a sharp smell of vinegar. Don’t worry, it will pass.
