When class is back in session, a spill, stain, or spot is bound to appear on the school supplies that endure the most wear and tear: backpacks and lunchboxes. While the items held inside may be perishable, these two essentials should last more than one school year. With these easy cleaning tips, you can keep backpacks and lunchboxes looking new year for years to come.
Hang to Dry
Promptly remove the backpack from the washing machine and hang to dry. Make sure to leave all compartments unzipped for ventilation.
To clean cloth lunchboxes, follow the steps above. For non-fabric lunchboxes, use our Spotless Kit to remove spills and smells. Spray the interior with Surface Cleaner and wipe with a Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth to remove food and drink spills.
*Fun Fact: The nontoxic, eco-friendly Surface Cleaner is safe to use around kids and food and can clean all surfaces.
For leftover lunch smells
Wet a Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth with Scented Vinegar and wipe down the interior of the lunchbox. The Scented Vinegar will deodorize without leaving a pungent smell in place for the next meal.
*Fun Fact: Vinegar is known for its powerful properties that fight stains, buildup, odors, and germs.
