How to Wash a Waterproof Backpack or Dry Bag
Here's how to wash and dry a waterproof backpack or dry bag made out of PVC material. The PVC waterproof material makes washing easy. All you need is water, some detergent, a rag or sponge, and a towel.
1. Empty the contents of the backpack or dry bag.
2. Rinse off the backpack or dry bag with a hose, under a faucet or in a tub of water.
3. Use a moist rag or sponge to wipe away tough spots such as mud and dirt. Gentle dishwashing soap can be added for extra cleaning power.
4. Rinse away any soap.
5. Towel dry.
6. Hang the backpack or dry bag (preferably upside down) to let it air out and finish drying.
Note that most Kauai Surf Co. waterproof backpacks and dry bags are made out of PVC and can be washed and dried in this manner.
Important! Do not wash a waterproof backpack or dry bag made from PVC in a washing machine or dry in a dryer.
