How to clean lunch bags?

When people go out for work, they usually have best business laptop backpack or lunch backpack. We bring delicious lunches to the work every day. Everything is packed in the crisper. Inevitably, food may spill and leak. So the lunch bag can play a very good role. With the advent of ‘litterless lunches’, a lot more goes into and gets stored in lunch bags and lunch boxes. But how do you clean your lunch bag?

Usually, there are foam inserts between the outside and inside of the lunch bag, and it is lined with a soft plastic lining. The appearance is similar to the material of the backpack, so it is quite durable and easy to clean.

How to clean lunch bags?1. Clean the lining
The inner lining is divided into completely waterproof inner lining and car seam inner lining. The waterproof inner lining can be cleaned without worry. You can directly pour water into it for cleaning. If there is a peculiar smell, you can wipe it with edible alcohol, and put it away after volatilization and drying.

If the inner lining is made by sewing, please pay attention to whether there is moisture in the inner seam of the inner lining. If so, be sure to place it in a cool place to dry. Many heat preservation bags have peculiar smell because the soup overflows when the food is loaded, causing the seam to absorb Caused by full soup.

Use edible alcohol to wipe clean as much as possible, and place it in a ventilated place to dry for 2 to 5 days. After the peculiar smell is greatly reduced, continue to use it. If the insulation bag is used every day, it is best to clean it once a week to avoid accumulation of peculiar smell, which cannot be removed for a long time.

2. Clean the appearance of lunch bag
If you want to clean the dirt on the surface. You need to confirm the material used for the appearance of the insulation bag, try to pour water on the surface, and then press it with your hands to check whether the water will be sucked in by the surface material.

If the surface is absorbent, be sure to let the surface dry before continuing to use it. If the surface is not completely dry and you put it away. The next time you take it out, you will find that the surface is full of off-white mold. At this time, you have to clean it with detergent (cleaning with detergent may cause the surface material to fade).

We will use the same cleaning method as the backpack here. It is best to avoid using a washing machine to clean your lunch backpack. First fill the sink with warm water and mix in a small amount of dish soap. Wipe the inside and outside with a sponge or cloth. The best way to rinse is to use a soft cloth dipped in clean water. Finally let it dry completely. Sometimes I will put it in place, open it upside down in my strainer and let it dry overnight. You can also put your lunch bag in a cool place and wait for it to dry. It is best not to put it in the dryer.
