Caring for your Eagle Creek Products
CLEANING YOUR PRODUCT PROPERLY
Clean your gear with a sponge with warm water to remove dirt and grime that will abrade the fabric. Use a non-detergent, powdered soap for tough cleaning jobs. To dry your bag, fill it loosely with crumpled up paper, and hang it in the shade. To preserve the integrity of the fabric coating inside of the bag, clean the interior with a damp cloth (no soap). Completely dry your gear before you store it.
NEVER MACHINE WASH YOUR PRODUCT
Unless stated otherwise on the care label, never machine wash or machine dry your travel gear or accessories. Do not use hot water, bleach, dishwashing liquid, pre-soaking solutions, or spot removers. Always use powdered non-detergent soap. Never use solvents to clean your gear or accessories as solvents may irreparably damage the materials and components of your product. *Any use of solvents will void Eagle Creek's Lifetime Warranty and No Matter What Warranty.
STORING YOUR PRODUCT
Clean and air dry your Eagle Creek bag or travel accessories completely before storing to avoid mildew, delamination, leaks, or foul odors. There is no remedy for mildew damage. Storing your gear or accessories while they are damp (even just a little) could cause the polyurethane coating to soften, stick to itself, and potentially pull away from the main fabric. Prolonged exposure to moisture will cause coatings to become sticky. Store your gear and accessories in a cool, temperate environment. Do not stack heavy objects on top of your gear and accessories and, if possible, stuff bags with clothing or crumpled-up paper to help maintain its shape. Odors, scratches, fading and scuffs are considered cosmetic damage, do not affect the function of the bag and are not covered under the Eagle Creek Warranties.
To extend their lifetime, keep your zippers clean, dry, and free of sand and grit.
