5 Tips for How to Clean Polycarbonate Luggage

It is impossible to prevent your luggage from getting a few scuffs and marks; however, with a little time and care you can have your luggage looking brand new. 

Thoroughly Clean the Entire Exterior Shell

After many trips around the globe, there is a chance that your luggage may have picked up some dirt and dust along the way. Find some time to give your luggage a little TLC with a hassle-free cleaning routine: To clean your polycarbonate luggage, begin by creating a mixture of warm water and dishwashing liquid. With a soft cloth or sponge proceed to wipe off the entire polycarbonate shell with the cleaning solution. Use a clean, dry cloth to remove the excess moisture from the shell.

Remove Scuffs and Marks

After grazing the pavement or bumping into other luggage overhead, your case can accumulate a few scuffs. When you see one, do not fear, simply use an eraser cleaning pad. An eraser cleaning pad can be used to buff out scratches as well as visible scuffs and marks. Remember to avoid cleaning agents that include acetone, ammonia, and benzene compounds as these may damage your polycarbonate surface and leave a sticky residue.

Wipe Down Handles and Wheels

When cleaning your polycarbonate luggage, do not forget about cleaning the handle and wheels. To clean handles you can simply use a damp microfiber cloth with warm soap and water, all-purpose cleaner, or a disinfecting wipe. You can also use this method to clean off the zipper and the wheels on your bag. In order to fully clean your wheels be sure to spin them on your damp cloth a few times to remove all dirt.

 

Vacuum and Wipe the Interior

While making sure the exterior of your polycarbonate luggage is clean, it is equally as important to focus on the interior cleanliness of your luggage. You can easily use the upholstery attachment of your vacuum to clean out the interior of your luggage. Make sure to get into all of the components and pockets in your luggage, so your luggage is spotless and ready for your next trip. Also, if something spills inside your suitcase, ROAM’s water-resistant lining can simply be wiped clean with a mild detergent and water. 

 

 

Avoid Cleaning with Nest Storage

If you are a traveler who truly does not have the time to clean your suitcase, you can keep all of your suitcases clean by storing each one in the other. What exactly does this mean? To store your cases, you may nest a carry-on in a larger size check-in case for space-saving storage. This method not only allows you to save space in your home, but also keep your luggage as clean as possible so you are always ready for a trip at any given moment!
