How To Clean Dior Canvas Bag

Keeping your everyday bag as pristine as possible is no mean feat. Even the most low-maintenance of handbags can take some beating, and if you’re an avid mall-goer like most Dior girls we know, that means being forced to share space with other shoppers on a near-daily basis.

Whether you love it or hate it, the result is a regular onslaught of grime, grease and other less pleasant substances. But fear not—as with so many things in life, there are ways to beat the odds and keep your Dior canvas bag looking its best for longer. In this blog post, we’ll go through everything you need to know about cleaning Dior canvas bags.

What You’ll Need

For the most part, cleaning dirty canvas bags really is as simple as using a few household products. However, you will need a few extra bits and pieces if you’re cleaning older bags that have been regularly used for a number of years.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • Soft cloth (like an old T-shirt)
  • Cleaning solution (either water with a little mild detergent added, or an enzymatic cleaner)
  • Cotton swabs
  • Paper towels or rags
  • A soft bristle brush (for older bags only)

Identifying The Different Parts Of Your Dior Canvas Bag

There are a few key parts of every Dior canvas bag that you should be familiar with before you start cleaning it. They are:

  • The flap/over-the-shoulder strap
  • The bottom/inside of the bag
  • The inside of the bag
  • The outside of the bag

How To Clean Dior Canvas Bags

The majority of dirt and grime that impacts the appearance of canvas bags can be wiped away with a simple cloth and water. To do this, you’ll need to dampen a clean rag with a little bit of cleaning solution, like mild dish soap or enzymatic cleaner.

Here are some of the key areas you should focus on when cleaning your Dior canvas bag:

The flap/over-the-shoulder strap

These parts of the bag will take the brunt of the wear and tear, and therefore need to be cleaned the most regularly. Simply wipe them down with the damp rag and let them air dry.

The bottom/inside of the bag

This is where most of the dust, grime and grease will accumulate, so it’s important to find time to clean it out as regularly as possible. Simply wipe the inside of the bag out with the damp rag until it’s as clean as it can be.

The inside of the bag

This is where you’ll find the zips and any other small accessories that come with the bag. Simply wipe the inside clean with the damp rag in the same way that you would the inside of the bag.

The outside of the bag

This is the final key area to regularly clean. Simply wipe the outside clean with the damp rag just like you would anywhere else on the bag.


Keeping your Dior canvas bag clean is easy enough if you remember to do it regularly. You can make the task even easier by storing it in a fabric bag designed to keep the bag protected from dust and other contaminants. By following our step-by-step guide, you’ll be able to keep your bag looking pristine and ready to be used at a moment’s notice.
