    Washing/cleaning absolute strap?

    I have a Cadet and absolute strap which I LOVE. However I live where it is swelteringly hot all the time, and I started biking to work. The absolute strap is going to get gross just from the sweat and grime. What’s the best way to clean the absolute strap?

    Give the fine folks in Customer Service a call/email/IM, I'm sure they'll know the proper steps and kudos for biking to work.
    I like all the blues and greys...and all the happy citrus colours too! My search unicorn is the Sapphire Dyneema original Small Shop Bag...

    FYI here is what they said:

    For the Absolute Strap, we recommend cleaning it with mild soap and water, and letting it air dry completely.

    For the soap, try a mild dish soap like Ms. Meyers or 7th Generation. Don't soak the strap the way you would with our bags; just a good wipedown once a week or so as needed (perhaps with a quick damp-cloth wipe at the end of any particularly sweaty day).

    Biggest thing is to let it dry completely! The neoprene is porous, so any water that gets in there and doesn't dry out could lead to mildew and rot.
