Discover these 3 tips for cleaning and taking care of your Neoprene Bag

Some might say that the best part of having a neoprene tote bag or a neoprene crossbody bag is how easy it is to take care of them. Unlike other large tote bags or crossbody bags that are not made from neoprene, you can use them every day and take them with you for any event without stressing about spilling something inside or staining them past repair. Today, we rounded up our top three tips for cleaning and taking good care of your neoprene bag.

Tip #1: Better safe than sorry

It’s always a good idea to try and prevent spills or stains from happening if you can. If you use tote bags for work or like using large tote bags for school, then you know how easy it is to spill your water bottle or your contact lens solution when you have everything just thrown about in there.

A great tip is to consider using a tote bag organizer that can keep all of your items in order, or using a small waterproof pouch to keep your cosmetics and day to day essentials all in one place.

It also makes things much easier when you’re looking around your bottomless bag for your keys when you’re in a rush!

If you do happen to misjudge how tightly you closed the lid on your water bottle and end up spilling some in your travel tote bag, you shouldn’t stress out about it, because the neoprene material is both water resistant and durable, making it a perfect weekender bag for women. It will dry out quickly and you’ll forget it ever happened!

Tip #2: When in doubt, air it out

Neoprene totes can effortlessly double as soccer or tennis bags for women who love to play sports, because unlike bulky duffel bags that are uncomfortable to carry around, these hand bags are lightweight and fit everything you need.

You won’t have to worry about your dirty running shoes staining your neoprene bag, because if they do then you can simply hand wash the affected area with some warm water and soap until it’s good as new!

If you’re worried about stuffing your post-workout clothes in your neoprene handbag and it getting stinky, there’s an easy way to get rid of any unwanted smells.

The neoprene fabric is very forgiving and it’s also a very breathable material, meaning that you can use it as a gym bag without worrying about long lasting smells holding onto it. Simply hang it to air it out and you’ll see how fast the smell of your sweaty workout clothes disappears!

Tip #3: Just throw it in the wash

Whether you use your neoprene bag as a diaper bag tote, take your neoprene beach bag out for a weekend of fun in the sun, have become obsessed with using it as your new neoprene lunch bag, or use it as all of the above, then by now you must know how easy it is to clean.

Let’s face it, this is probably one of the main reasons why you just can’t switch to using old backpacks or brown paper bags.

Speaking of lunch, you might be wondering: are neoprene lunch bags safe from staining? Yes, they are! This is why they’re a great alternative to other lunch boxes, because it doesn’t take much effort in order to properly wash neoprene lunch bags.

You can just pop it into your washing machine when it’s laundry day!

We recommend using a cold machine wash on a gentle cycle and making sure to use a non-harsh detergent. You can also hand wash your tote or crossbody bag if there’s just a small stain you want to get rid of by using warm water and soap.

Just avoid using stain removers or detergents that contain bleach, especially if you’re washing your favorite black neoprene bag! Also, make sure to skip the dryer, hang it out to air dry instead.

Whether you’re a carefree klutz that always seems to be spilling stuff on their favorite bags (and themselves!) or you’re a germaphobe that’s fond of items that are easy to clean and disinfect, you need a neoprene bag in your life.

Not only are they the most comfortable tote bags or crossbody bags for women that don’t have the time to worry ruining their favorite accessory because it’s not easily washable, but they’re the best option of travel bags for women that are constantly on the go from one city to the next.

They make a stylish yet comfy lunch bag that keeps your food safe without giving you any stress about removing that salad dressing stain from last Tuesday. Not to mention how you can perfectly take your large tote and use it as a neoprene beach bag without worrying about whether spilling your tanning lotion inside it or having your kids fill it with sand ruining it.

Bottom line, you need a carefree bag that fits your active lifestyle and that’s one less thing to worry about. If you follow these tips and take good care of your neoprene bag, it will last you for years and years!
