Care & Cleaning for Samsonite and American Tourister Products

The Samsonite and American Tourister brands enjoy worldwide recognition and are synonymous with quality, style, dependability and innovation in luggage and travel accessories. Ensure the long life of your Samsonite and American Tourister products by following these simple guidelines:

Hardside Care

To clean hardside luggage, we recommend using a gentle soap and warm water, rinsing well. If you would like to wax the case after cleaning, any good silicone-base automobile or furniture polish will preserve the luster and add resistance to the covering. We do NOT recommend, however, that you try to clean the luggage with a combination cleaner-polish.

Softside Care

To clean softside luggage, we recommend spot cleaning with a mild soap (i.e. dish soap) and water. If this is not successful, try a product used for spot removal on clothing such as Spray 'n Wash, or using a foam type cleaner used to clean car mats or automobile carpets (sold at car parts stores). If the luggage has an offensive odor, use a vinegar (1 part) and water (5 parts) mixture. This may take the odor out but it will then need to be aired out for a few days. Also, we recommend placing charcoal in the bag for a day or more (depending on the strength of the odor) and close the bag. The charcoal will absorb the smell.

Storing your Product

Storing your Samsonite or American Tourister bag Extremes of temperature, as well as the extremes of humidity will tend to age luggage. Any Samsonite or American Tourister luggage which is being stored in an attic or basement should be taken out of storage, opened, and permitted to "air" regularly. This will help to prevent mildew from forming as a result of humidity. It also assists in maintaining the normal resiliency of the case itself. Following storage where extreme temperatures prevail, we recommend cleaning the luggage (see cleaning instructions above).
