Disinfect Those Backpacks!
Backpacks aren’t as simple as they used to be. They come with so many buckles, zippers, and straps, you are more scared the washing machine will get messed up before the actual backpack will. To avoid any mishaps, empty every compartment of the backpack and make sure you keep them open. Now that your backpack is empty, place it in an old pillowcase and tie it shut. Add a small amount of your favorite detergent and place the backpack in your washing machine. Wash using the gentle or delicate cycle with lukewarm or cold water! Once the backpack completes the cycle, we suggest letting it air dry to prevent any shrinking, breaking, or melting from occurring!
No two backpacks are created equal. So, make sure you read the care instructions on how to properly clean your backpack before proceeding to make sure this method is safe for your child’s backpack!
