View Full Version : Cleaning old web gear ?

April 05, 2004, 19:36
Just got an old Finnish Mosin sling. It is in nice shape but quite dirty and just a slight bit of musty smell to it. It is webbing- cotton I think - and some sewn on leather tabs and a sewn in steel buckle. Don't want to lose the markings on the webbing but would like to clean it up a bit and deodorize it.
Ideas from the webbing pros ?

I use an old toothbrush and some liquid detergent in the kitchen sink. Bigger stuff, bigger brush. But a toothbrush does fine for a web sling.

I used dish washing soap DAWN, JOY etc.., and a brush to clean my web slings......cleans them like a champ.....and it smells good too :)
