Travelling Tips: Cleaning your luggage

Do you have problems like me when it comes to keeping the luggage clean of stains?

I had bought a nice pink luggage back in 2008 because I thought the colour was bright enough for me to recognise it on the luggage belt! But the trouble came when I came home after my 2009 trip…
And after my trip in 2009 and 2010, I still didn’t manage to find a solution to get rid of those stubborn black oil stains so I went to add some more “dirt” instead.

And that was 2011, before my latest trip to USA.
What happen afterwards was something I never expected.
Not only did the dirt got worst, but the my drawings faded and the ink got smudged.
Now, currently, my luggage looks like this:

Stains like these have been there since 2009 and I’m dying to get it clean.
I tried googling and research online on any possible stain remover solution.
And I found this:
From one of the forum, there was a guy who was selling this previously until he mentioned that Home-Fix stores now carries this. So, I went to hunt for this.
Some of you may think, aiya, the stains can be easily wiped off with soap and water or Jif and water.
It’s not I have not tried them, I already did but the stains just don’t come off.
I was skeptic about this actually working so I bought a small bottle instead.
This small bottle ain’t cheap either. It cost me about SGD5~6; I can’t remember what was the exact amount but it is about there.
I found this Goo Gone solutions last year October, November (I think) in one of the Home-Fix store when I was out shopping with my parents but this sat on the shelf until now.
I never had the time to really pull my luggage out to try it but since I am starting to prep for my trip, I had pull out my luggage and I tried it.
The instructions say I have to pour the solution on the stain, let it soak for a while then clean it.
Here’s the results:
This product really works!!
It is amazing that I do not even need to scrub hard!!
Just a little rubbing and it all came off!
Well, pictures may be a little hard to tell, so I took a video on my mobile phone of me cleaning the luggage stains.
You can have a look here:


I also tired cleaning off the leftover sticker on my luggage.
Although it needs a little more cleaning solution and a little elbow grease, they all still came out!


Here’s what actually happened in the end:
I don’t advocate for this product nor this was sponsored.
I actually research for a resolution online and bought this product.
Nevertheless, I’m pretty impress with it.
You may want to try it out too if you have similar problems.
