How to CLEAN sleeping bags for camping

January 03, 2015

These can usually be washed, but because many contain down or fiber filling, you should always check the care instructions before cleaning. Sleeping bags should be washed separately on a gentle cycle. Add detergent to the washer and partially fill with warm water. Submerge the sleeping bag in the water to expel air, then allow the washer to finish filling.

Periodically stop the washer, open the lid, and press air from the sleeping bag to help ensure good cleaning. Tumble dry at regular temperatures. You may try adding a clean tennis ball to the dryer to fluff up the filling. If you find the bag to be too bulky for a home washing machine, Utopia Cleaners would be happy to take care of it for you.
