Our lunch bag has been designed for easy cleaning. It can simply be wiped with a damp cloth inside and out. The outer fabric is water-resistant so it should repel most stains. However, with kids around, we know there is still a chance it will get dirty! For tough stains or marks, you can rub gently with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Then allow to air dry completely with the lid open (you can prop it up as per example) before packing away or repacking.
We do not recommend soaking your lunch bag, or placing it in the washing machine for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the outer fabric is water-resistant and washing it in a machine will weaken this resistance so it won’t repel spills and stains as well as it should.
Secondly, with a machine wash the various layers of the lunch bag will be wet and could lead to a build-up of mould (ew, no thanks!) or delamination (where the coat on the tray could start to peel).
Our lunch bag has been designed for easy cleaning so you should be able to keep it just so, by wiping over with a damp cloth and treating spot stains as per instructions outlined in ‘how do I effectively clean my lunch bag?’
