By reading this tutorial, you can get some helpful tips and information on how to clean bags with natural remedies. If one of the accessories we have is one canvas bag and if you decide to clean it you can do it using different methods. Whichever way you choose, it is essential not to damage the fibers when removing accumulated stains and dirt.



  • Alcohol
  • Sodium bicarbonate
  • Lemon juice
  • Talcum powder
  • Cornstarch
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Milk
  • Cotton and white fabric.
  • Neutral soap
  • Clothes brush

If there are ink stains on the bag, this problem can be remedied by using alcohol. At first you should rub the part (without rubbing), then you should put a little talcum powder and leave it for about 10 minutes. At this point, you need to remove everything with the brush that is generally used for cleaning clothes. Then, with a cloth soaked in neutral soap, emulsify the stain, thus permanently removing the halo.


If the dirt in the bag is of another type, for example mud, food or coffee stains, you can intervene with another natural product. A great remedy is lemon juice mixed with baking soda to clean bags. The mixture turns into a paste and should be spread on the cloth bag, then dried. Then it is cleaned with a white cloth and a stain-free bag is obtained, without the presence of the halo. If the duffel bag is pure white, even a very small stain becomes visible. In this case, it is essential to apply the milk on the stain with a piece of cotton. It should then be dried with talcum powder and removed (along with the halo) with a clean brush.

A very dirty cloth bag with difficult to remove stains should be treated by washing it with a natural bleaching liquid. Instead of buying from someone of an industrial type, you can easily clean bags at home with negligible cost and in no time. It is advisable to pour the stains out of the hydrogen peroxide canvas bag, then let it emulsify for a few minutes, sprinkle with rice starch and finally remove everything with a brush. It is advisable to know that starch tends to harden the fibers after washing. This allows you to use the duffel bag for any type of activity, as a personal appearance and leisure accessory. In this way, the dirt stains are removed and the bag returns as before the treatment.
