Here's a guide on how to clean your insulated lunch bags and cooler bags, and make it a fun task for the whole family.
1. Empty You Lunch Bag
Empty the bag: Before you begin cleaning your insulated lunch bag or cooler bag, make sure that it is completely empty. This will make it easier to clean and will prevent any food or drink residue from being left behind.

Clean the interior: Once the bag is empty, use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe down the interior of the bag. If there are any stubborn stains or spills, you can use a mild cleaning solution or a mixture of water and white vinegar. Be sure to rinse the interior thoroughly before moving on to the exterior.
3. Clean The Exterior
Clean the exterior: Next, wipe down the exterior of the bag using a damp cloth or sponge. If there are any stains or spills, you can use a mild cleaning solution or a mixture of water and white vinegar. Be sure to pay special attention to any zippers or snaps, as these can often collect dirt and grime.
