How should I wash my Moleskine bag?
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS FOR BAGS MADE OF POLYURETHANE AND POLYAMIDE
Using a sponge moistened with water and mild soap, gently rub the fabric then rinse with a clean damp sponge and blot dry with a clean cotton cloth. Do not use soap or water directly on the bag. Fill the bag with a towel or material so that it doesn’t lose its shape and leave it to dry naturally, avoiding direct contact with heat or sunlight. If the stain is still visible or some areas have changed color, repeat the process on a wider area to get a uniform look. To avoid streaks or loss of color, do not use chemicals or solvents of any kind. Do not iron. Do not dry clean.
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS FOR BAGS MADE OF LEATHER
Leather is a living material, so any spots, wrinkles or other imperfections guarantee its natural origin. To maintain these original characteristics, use cleaning products that do not contain solvents, gasoline or alcohol. Use a small amount of the agent on a soft cloth and never apply it directly onto the leather. Gently rub the material with small circular movements. Repeated rubbing may cause discoloring. Do not immerse in water. In case of contact with water, dry as soon as possible by blotting the wet area with a dry cotton cloth. Do not rub moisture into the leather. Do not expose the bag to direct heat. Do not iron.
