As you may well know, whatever the fabric or object, the color white is a magnet for dirt, and cleaning it, it becomes difficult when difficult stains appear and common mistakes are made, the most frequent being the use of aggressive chemicals such as bleach. If you want to know how to clean a white bag properly, read on and practice this easy and inexpensive home method that will not disappoint you.
How to clean and remove stains from a white bag
Before starting any homemade trick, try washing with soap and water with neutral pH or with the detergent of your choice. You can do it in the washing machine with a gentle wash cycle, inside a cover and without any other colored garment so that it does not stain, or also by hand, immersing it in a basin of soapy water, rinsing with plenty of water until no more foam comes out and then pressing gently to remove excess moisture from the bag.
If with this basic cleaning method there are still marks of dirt or some liquid has been spilled on it, then follow this procedure and apply this remedy with baking soda and vinegar to remove stains:
- Before you start you have to empty it completely. Take out any objects you may have.
- Fill a container with water, add half of vinegar and 4 to five tablespoons of baking soda.
- Mix well and once integrated, moisten a white cloth in this solution and rub gently over the stain until it disappears.
- When you see that the stain has disappeared, with a dry and clean cloth, dry well all the wetted surface.
- Finally, let it dry in the open air, but without direct contact with the sun.
And in case you were wondering: Is it necessary to use exactly one white cloth? The answer is yes. A colored cloth could fade and cause accidental stains on the bag’s fabric.
With these simple and practical steps, you can leave your white bag impeccable and extend its useful life for many more years. And the best part? With environmentally friendly products that will not mistreat the material and disinfect it. Don’t hesitate to try it!
