 Step by step instructions for how to wash a backpack or any bike bag:

  • Protect working surface and lay item flat.
  • Spray evenly to outside of fabric. For large items apply in sections.
  • Rub in well with a damp cloth/sponge, paying attention to particularly dirty areas. Use a soft nylon brush if necessary to remove stubborn stains.
  • Rinse with clean water using a cloth or sponge.

Item(s) should be air dried. Allow item(s) to fully dry. Marks may appear on fabric if excess product is not wiped away. Test on a hidden area first. Use approximately 50ml of product per 1m2 of fabric.
