How to Clean a Herschel Backpack

Herschel backpacks are a very popular bag from Herschel Supply Co. in the US. These backpacks each come with their own washing instructions based on the style of Herschel backpack that you choose, however, the company is very clear that none of their bags should be washed in the washing machine. 

This limits your options from washing your Herschel backpack to spot cleaning with mild soap and water and a soft towel. Pay attention to the specific label on your bag and make sure to empty your backpack before you attempt to clean it by hand. 

Finally, do not put your Herschel backpack in the dryer as the intense heat of the dryer will damage your bag. Instead, air dry your backpack in an area that is away from direct sunlight. 

How to Clean an Osprey Backpack

Osprey backpacks are a popular outdoor backpack or daypack option for men and women. As these backpacks are built for the outdoors, they are more likely to get damp or dirty while you are out and about on the trails or camping. 

This brand is another that cautions against washing any of their bags in the washing machine. Instead, they advise that you wash your Osprey backpack by hand in the bathtub or a sink with mild soap and water. 

If your Osprey backpack is able to carry drinking water, you will need to rinse out the water reservoir after each use to avoid the growth of bacteria. If you need to fully clean your water reservoir, use water and diluted dish detergent.

Again, never dry Osprey products in the dryer. Air dry your Osprey backpack away from direct sunlight and use a drying rack for your water reservoir.  

How to Clean a Fjallraven Backpack

The Fjallraven Kanken backpack has become extremely trendy in the past couple of years, but if you are finding your Fjallraven is starting to get dirty after so much use you will need to wash your Fjallraven backpack.

Like other popular backpack brands, Fjallraven warns against putting their products in the washing machine. This brand recommends handwashing with lukewarm water, mild detergent, and a soft brush. They caution that their bags are made with sensitive dyes and that you should be extremely careful with how vigorously you scrub at their materials.

Also like the other brands on this list, do not put your Fjallraven backpack in the dryer. This will undoubtedly ruin your Fjallraven backpack. Instead, choose to air dry in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight.
