Cleaning a Hiking Backpack

Keen skiers are happy to forego a summer holiday to go skiing. It is important to give hiking equipment special care. If regular cleaning methods are involved, the hiking equipment, such as backpacks will be protected from being abandoned early.


When it comes to hiking backpacks and any delicate or expensive bags, it is always recommended to wash them by hand. And some backpacks may be too large for your washing machine or they might wrinkle inside the drier.


To wash your hiking backpack, you should empty your backpack and remove any dust, dirt, small particles from the interior. You can use a small vacuum cleaner to get rid of persistent debris. And then remove the shoulder straps, metal frame, and any other detachable piece of hardware. After a bit of soft cleaner, use baby shampoo which has a more neutral pH than regular dish soap or cleaners to clean fussy fabrics. After you’re done with the insides, gently clean the outsides. After thoroughly cleaning the parts of the backpack, you should pay extra attention to the bottom of the pack and the areas around the zippers as they tend to attract plenty of dirt.

Cleaning a Regular Backpack

Regular backpacks such as school backpacks, drawstring backpack, personalized drawstring backpack, cotton drawstring backpack, etc., usually don’t need special care. But if you want to clean it, there are some steps to follow to make it as good as new.


Firstly, you should remove everything from the bag, and get rid of all the crumbs, dirt from the interior. For really stubborn debris, you can use the toothbrush to loosen it but be gentle on the fabric. In the case of mesh material, such as mesh grocery bag, small mesh drawstring bags and organic cotton mesh bags, you should replace the brush with a soft sponge. However, for those backpacks come with a plastic lining which can get damaged easily, we have to be gently on the fabric.


We cannot use the laundry to clean hiking bags, but we can clean ordinary bags. It is advisable to place the backpack in a laundry bag first to prevent the straps and pieces of hardware from getting damaged or from damaging the washing machine.
