How to Care for a Vintage Gym Bag

A vintage gym bag is probably going to have rather muted colors, but you still need to make sure that they do not run when you wash it. To do this, set the washing machine to use only cold water, rather than warm or hot. The default setting for most washing machines is hot water, so you might have to change this every time that you wash the bag. With cold water, the bag still gets clean, but the colors stay in place. 

Another thing to think about is the bag's durability. It is already a vintage item, so it could be rather old. The more abuse you put it through, the faster it is going to wear out. Run it through the washer and the dryer on a gentle cycle. It is often said that the washing of clothes - or gym bags - does more to wear them out than actually using them. The gentle cycle will keep it in good condition for longer. If you want, you could even hang it out on the line to dry, rather than putting it in the dryer at all. 

Finally, if there is a base in the bottom of the bag, it is probably removable. Make sure that you take it out before you start the cycle. This base could be made out of plastic, which could melt under the high heat, or cardboard, which could dissolve in the water. Put it back in after the bag has dried out.

Halloween Party

Wow, it's been a while since I last posted here. I have online tasks that expired on me because I got so busy and lazy updating this blog. It's my bad and regretful to let those opportunities to pass by. I will really do my best to be diligent and ensure to have those blessings well received or it may not come my way again. 

On another note, since I've been back in the workforce my social life becomes active again. My co-workers have a good way of easing up those pressures at work. During Fridays, after our shift, we sometimes get together and usually happens in a restaurant that opens until midnight or at 2am. We'll grab something to eat and them have some cocktails. I on the other hand do not drink so just be contented with the food and some juice drinks with of course the fun talks. 

This past Friday after work, we ended up having the Halloween costume party and also a birthday celebration of our co-worker and friend. It was fun and honestly it was my first time to attend a costume party here. We had so much fun and we all enjoyed the night that ended up also in a Pho Hoa - Vietnamese restaurant - for some hot soup in a cold early morning after party.
