Caring For Your Luggage

As is the case with most possessions, the proper care will ensure both quality and longevity. Much like the clothing that you wear, luggage must be cared for in accordance with its design and material used for its construction.

American Tourister, one of the leading luggage manufacturers in the United States, recommends cleaning hardside luggage using a gentle soap and warm water. After rinsing well, the company recommends that anyone wishing to preserve the luster of their luggage and add resistence to its covering should use a quality silicone-based automobile or furniture polish. “We do not recommend, however, that you try to clean the luggage with a combination cleaner-polish,” says American Tourister.

Softside luggage can be spot cleaned using mild soap and water. In addition, you can also use products designed for spot removal on clothing or a cleaner designed for car mats and/or automobile carpets. Remember, it’s important to rinse the luggage thoroughly after cleaning.

Storage is also an important part of maintaining the quality of beauty of your luggage. As such, it is recommended that you avoid placing your luggage where it would be susceptible to extreme heat or cold, which may cause aging. “Any American Tourister luggage which is being stored in an attic or basement should be taken out of storage, opened, and permitted to ‘air’ regularly,” according to American Tourister. This action will help to prevent mildew resulting from humidity, which is often present when/if an item is not used frequently.

If you own a luggage set, it may be a good idea to store it in the same manner as you received it. Most sets will come with the smaller pieces packed into the larger ones for convenient handling. Storing your luggage this way will also help to preserve the smaller pieces and will leave only the largest exposed to the outside air. In addition to frequent cleaning and allowing your luggage to air out by frequently removing it from storage and opening it, this method will protect the majority of your set from stains and everyday buildup that may occur if each piece were to be placed in storage separately.

Aside from the aforementioned methods of caring for your luggage, it’s important that you remain mindful of your items while traveling. Although a hardside suitcase is strong, it is not invincible. Depending on the mishap, this type of luggage can and will suffer damage though it is the strongest of all luggage. Softside luggage features the ability to expand, which means it is flexible and more likely to suffer tears or rips. Taking special care when handling your luggage will result in many long and happy travels.

The majority of luggage manufacturers, including Samsonite and American Tourister, offer warranties on their luggage. These guarantees are not enforceable in the event of misuse, but are a valuable promise of quality and will be appreciated in the event of a problem relating to the design or workmanship of the luggage. It is important to save all purchase receipts and documentation relating to the purchase of luggage, including warranty information, incase a claim should later need to be filed.
