How to care for and maintain your NZ Tote Bag
To ensure that your NZ Tote Bag remains to look sharp for as long as possible, it's important to follow these care and maintenance tips:
- Spot cleaning: If your tote bag gets dirty, spot clean it using a mild detergent and a soft brush or cloth. Don't scrub print.
- Machine washable: Place tote bags inside out, inside a laundry wash bag to prevent the handles from getting caught in the washing machine. Gentle cycle cold wash. Do not tumble dry. Do not iron print. Dry in the shade. We also don't recommend using Earthwise or Ecostore detergent as they can cause print fading and we want your gear to look sharp for as long as possible.
- Avoid overloading: While the NZ Tote Bag is designed to carry heavy loads, it's important to avoid overloading it. Like any tote bag, excessive weight can strain the seams and handles, leading to damage over time.
