How to wash your hiking backpack Kajka

Written by Henrik Andersson 6 May, 2013 in "Product Care"

A hiking backpack can easily become dirty, so how do you wash your Kajka backpack if it get’s dirty?

The outer fabric on Kajka is made out of Vinylon F, it should be washed gently with lukewarm water and a soft brush. If you wish to use gentle soap to remove dirt you have to be prepared that some of the protective wax may disappear.

You can re-wax your backpack with our Greenland Wax warmed on a low heat. Vinylon F is sensitive to high-temperatures so only use the lowest setting on your iron.
