Cleaning a day pack

I got slime all over my REI day pack.  Can I put it in the washing machine?

 

Thanks.

Hi @Bill9 - Thanks for reaching out! Washing a backpack in a washing machine is not recommend.

We suggest using lukewarm water, a sponge, and some mild soap. If you have a bathtub available, it might be easiest to wash it there to contain the water and slime mess. For more details on the cleaning process, you can take a look at our Expert Advice article How to Wash a Backpack.

Hopefully this helps!
