Game Bag Care and Washing

If taken care of properly, our ultralight game bags can be used many times. Cleaning your game bags is simple and easy and can be done following these few steps.  

Washing Your Game Bags

  1. Remove as much hair and meat as you can that are stuck to the game bags. This is easily done outside with a hose, or by soaking the bags for 1 minute in water as the meat and hair will separate more easily. 

  2. In a bucket or sink, mix a solution of unscented bleach and a small amount of laundry detergent with warm water. The amount of bleach will depend on the size of the bucket and how much water you use, but a stronger bleach solution will also help clean off blood stains. Submerge your game bags into the bucket and let them soak for 10 minutes.

  3. Remove your game bags and spray off the inside and outside with clean water to get excess hair and meat off.

  4. Rinse bags with clean water until the soap and bleach are out of the game bags. We like to do this in the kitchen sink, or outside with a hose.

  5. Hang your bags to air dry. 

  6. Put Game bags away and start dreaming of your next hunt.

Cleaning Tips

  • Do not wash in your washing machine. It can be done, but it can cause the reflective logos to come off. 
  • If your bags have some hair and dried chunks of meat on them, it will be much easier to get both off after the bags have soaked in water for a minute.
  • If you want your bags to be as white as possible, use a stronger bleach solution and let them soak a little longer. 
  • Always air dry your game bags.
