Best way to clean a backpack
I have a 10-year-old pack that has seen a lot of use. It's still pretty sturdy, but it has an off smell for some reason, and I can't seem to shake out the dust and grime that has settled into it here and there. I'd like to use it for an upcoming trip rather than buy something new, but only if I can clean it up properly. No idea how to to that, though. I asked one drycleaner and they said they don't do it. Does that mean nobody does, or should I keep looking until I find a place that can handle it?
1 - wipe it with water. Don't use stain remover or dishwasher detergent.
2 - use a non-detergent cleaner to wash it if it is really dirty. I think they mentioned using a down cleaner or Woolite.
3 - stuff it with dry newspaper and hang it in the shade to dry.
They specifically mentioned to not use a washing machine or dry cleaning. I don't think this would affect the backpack itself... if it is Cordura. BUT, it will certainly affect all the foam padding, rigid stays/framesheet, etc.
Again, I'd suggest looking at their website for more details.
