Terra Thread products are eco-friendly, stylish and built to last. It’s important to know how to care for and clean your Terra Thread products to keep them in pristine shape for years to come. If you use a Terra Thread backpack or tote, daily wear can be harsh, thus why it’s important to regularly clean your bag.
We recommend spot cleaning your bag whenever needed or at least twice a year for regular maintenance.

Empty out all pockets of the bag, including front pockets, laptop compartments and main pockets, depending on the product. Remove any added decorations like pins or other DIY elements to the bag. If you have added patches to your bag, you may want to check if these patches can be safely cleaned.
Give your bag a shake outside. Shake upside down to get rid of any crumbs or junk hiding in the bottom. If extra dirty, turn inside out and shake again.
We recommend all cleaning of Terra Thread products to be done with cold water.
We recommend spot cleaning your Terra Thread items.
You will Need:
-Bowl of Cold Water
Start with a reusable cloth and cold water. If you bag is very dirty, you may need multiple reusable cloths. Dip the cloth in the water and gently blot stains and dirt. Apply light pressure when scrubbing stains, do not rub vigorously or damage may occur. Rise spots with cold water. Hang to dry, allowing 24 hours to fully air out.
You will need:
-Bowl or sink with cold water (must be large enough to fit product in)
-Laundry Detergent or Delicate Wash
If your bag or pouch is still dirty after spot cleaning, hand washing is the next best option. Fill a bowl or sink with cold water. Make sure this bowl or sink will fit your Terra Thread product. Add a small amount of laundry detergent or delicate wash liquid to your cold water. Mix the liquid up, allowing it to dissipate throughout the water. Add your product (or the section of it that has become soiled) and lightly scrub it in the detergent water. Repeat this until dirt or stains have lifted and rinse with cold water. Hang to dry, allowing 24 hours for the product to fully air out.
We do not recommend that you put your Terra Thread products in the washing machine, as this may cause damage to the product or other items inside the washer.
If you must wash your product in the washing machine, make sure to use cold water and a gentle cycle if possible. Do not put your Terra Thread product in the dryer, as this may lead to shrinkage. Air dry your product for at least 24 hours before use. Bag may lose shape after washing cycle, stuff with cloth or other product to help bag gain shape again.
