VIDEO TUTORIAL: How to clean and care for your jute summer bags

In this one and a half minute video tutorial we explain how to clean and take care of your summer or beach bags made with jute.

To clean your jute bags (or any other accessory made with jute) we will dilute coarse salt in a glass of water and apply it with a cloth in soft circular movements so that the entire surface is impregnated. Next, we let it dry in the open air and, once dry, we simply pass a brush over the surface.

If our bag has any stains, we will have to make a mixture of half a liter of water and a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide, apply the solution with a cloth, rubbing the surface of the jute bag with circular movements. Once dry, we rub the surface again with a dry cloth or with a brush.

Finally, to store our bag from one season to the next, we must keep it clean and dry, protected from moisture, if possible with newspaper inside so that it does not deform and we can wear the bag the following summer as if was new.
