When I travel, I always place a luggage tag inside my bag, just in case the tag on the exterior of the bag is removed. This trip I decided to attach two tags to the outside of my bag; a Gal Gear yellow tag and the Hartmann tag that came with the bag. Much to my surprise, the Hartmann tag was ripped from the bag. (see red circle in photo above) The Gal Gear tag was a little dirty, but still firmly attached. The dirt was easily cleaned with "Simple Green®" all-purpose cleaner. I don't have an affiliation with the company that makes Simple Green, I just know it works well on vinyl. Simple Green® worked very well on the luggage, too.
