Prepping Your Backpack
Remove any loose dirt from the outside. Use a damp cloth or brush to remove any loose dirt from your backpack. You don’t want any debris to get mixed in as you wash your bag. Don’t rub any dirt or grease deeper into the fabric.
Trim any loose threads. You may have loose threads around the zippers and straps that become prone to snagging or further damage. Trim the loose threads to ensure these areas do not get further damage.
Gather your cleaning materials. Depending on how dirty your backpack is, you may have to find specific cleaning agents to pretreat the stains. For example, you may need a grease remover or specific remover for any sticky substance. You may also need a toothbrush to clean the details of your backpack.
Check the size of your backpack. Backpacks come in all shapes and sizes. Determine whether your backpack is able to fit into a washing machine or whether it needs to be hand cleaned. If the label states, you may need to go to a professional to have it cleaned.
Empty your backpack. Make sure to check all the pockets in case you have missed any loose change or small items. You don’t want to wash an important thumb drive or lose any jewelry because you didn’t thoroughly check each compartment. Dirt may be stuck in between creases so use the hose of your vacuum cleaner.
