    Washing a Messenger Bag

    So, I've had my Timbuk2 bag for about 6 months now, and usually I just throw it under my desk for the day. Sometimes though, I take the train into the City for a meeting and take it with me. It looks cool enough, because they are kind of trendy these days (although I may be the only one with a spare tube and pump in my bag). But I noticed today that it wasn't smelling too good.

    What is the best way to wash my bag? Problem is the waterproofing is on the inside, so the nylon absorbs perspiration. I will probably just try rinsing it off. Maybe the Chrome bags repel perspiration a little better.

    scrub it

    Good old fashioned tub full of soapy water and a scrubbing brush. Smelly, beat up bags are cool - don't scrub off all the character.
    One crowded hour of glorious life is worth an age without a name.

    Simple Green

    I fill my washer enough to submerge my camelback and add 1/2 cup of simple green and let it soak for a day, then rinse it with the hose. It came out looking new and smelling good.
