Care Instructions | Scout + Onbuhimo

November 15, 2018

Get a little something on your carrier? Spot clean fabric when necessary with a gentle detergent and cool water.
Need a deeper clean? Here's how to do it!

1. Fill a basin with cold water and add a little liquid detergent. You want something free of optical brighteners and enzymes, we love Soak.

2. Gently swish your carrier around for 1 minute.

2. Lay out your carrier on a clean towel and roll to press out excess water.

3. Hang to dry out of the sun. Steam iron the linen, if desired.

4. If your carrier has leather - condition leather using a small amount of leather conditioner on a clean, dry cloth (preferably white). 

TIP! Conditioning your leather straps once a month, or so as needed will keep it soft and looking its best. 

We like Chamberlain's Leather Milk, Soak detergent, and for stains we love Buncha Farmer's Stain Stick.



To preserve the life of your Sakura Bloom Scout and/or Onbuhimo follow our storage recommendations below.

For Everyday Storage - We like to keep our Scout/Onbuhimo hanging by our door, ready to go, keeping them out of direct sunlight when not in use. On a hanger in the hall closet or bedroom helps preserve the straps evenly. For compact travel, both carriers fold up nicely into themselves. Added tip: you can detach the strap and secure it around the folded carrier for the slimmest profile.

Long Term Storage - If you plan to store your Scout/Onbuhimo for an extended period of time, we recommend not folding the leather straps as to not crease it.
