Bumkins signature fabric is 100% polyester with a waterproof coating embedded into the fabric. We made our fabric wipeable, machine washable, and easy to rinse and hang after use. Here’s some tips on the way to ensure the best results.
Before Washing: Ensure all crumbs and food residue is rinsed off bags. Then flip bag inside out prior to washing and drying.
Washing: Wash in any temperature water. Machine or hand wash with regular laundry detergent in your normal laundry load. Do not use any bleach or any non-chlorine bleach additives. When washing in the kitchen sink, any liquid dish soap can be used.
To Avoid Stains: Promptly rinse bags in cold water and launder as soon as possible. Some foods, like tomato sauce or beet juice, may stain the fabric if left too long before washing.
Mold Prevention: Mold spores form when fabric is splashed with food or water and then left somewhere warm and dark while still damp. It is best to clean food from bags immediately, flip bag inside out, and then wash and fully dry prior to storing.
