    Prep your backpack for washing. Use your hands to brush off loose, exterior dirt and dust. Then use a damp rag to lightly wipe down the outside of your bag. This gets off the big, surface dirt, and will help keep your cleaning water as clean as possible.[2]
    • If you pack has some kind of frame, make sure to remove it before trying to wash the bag.
    • Take off any detachable pockets and straps from the main body of the backpack, and clean them separately. This will ensure that each portion of the bag gets a thorough cleaning.
    • Cut away any loose threads or fibers close to the zipping areas.[3] This ensures that along with your clean backpack, you will have a backpack free of snagged and stuck zippers.
