Pflegeanleitung: Die richtige Reinigung für den Rucksack

Wie “wasche” ich meinen Rucksack?

Rucksack Pflege, Rucksack waschen, wie wasche ich einen Rucksack?

Gelegentlich braucht auch ein Rucksack eine Reinigung. Entweder weil er verschmutzt ist oder schlecht riecht. Durch die richtige Rucksack Pflege hält dein Rucksack länger und schützt den Inhalt so wie am ersten Tag des Gebrauchs.  

Wichtig: Den Rucksack NIE(!) in der Waschmaschine waschen- auch nicht mit Feinwäsche oder Programmen wie Handwäsche!

Ist der Rucksack leicht verschmutzt:

  • Größere Verschmutzungen außen, kannst Du mit einer Bürste entfernen. Flecken mit einem feuchten Tuch oder Schwamm bearbeiten.
  • Rucksack umstülpen, so dass die innere Seite nun außen ist.
  • Gut schütteln, so dass loser Schmutz wie Staub und Dreck herunter fliegen. 
  • Mit einem feuchten Tuch oder Schwamm gröbere Stellen abwischen.
  • Den Rucksack an einem warmen Platz aufhängen und komplett trocknen lassen. 

Ist der Rucksack stark verschmutzt: 

  • Den umgestülpten Rucksack in einer Badewanne oder Dusche abbrausen. Wer eine Badewanne hat, kann den Rucksack darin auch “baden” lassen. Du kannst dazu auch sanftes Reinigungsmittel verwenden. 
  • Die dreckigen Stellen mit einem Schwamm oder Tuch sanft reinigen. 
  • Gründlich mit Wasser ausspülen. Polsterungen wie Hüftgurt und Träger gut ausdrücken und vom Waschmittel befreien.
  • Hänge den Rucksack an einem luftigen, warmen, nicht direkt Sonnenbeschienenen Platz auf und lasse ihn komplett trocknen, bevor du ihn wieder verstaust.

Hänge den geöffneten Rucksack an eine Stelle wo er gut durchtrocknen kann. 

Zu guter Letzt: Verstaue Deinen Rucksack nie feucht! Lasse ihn am besten umgedreht trocknen und kontrolliere mit den Händen, ob Du noch feuchte Stellen findest.
