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. In a bucket, 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. 
  2. Remove as much hair or meat chunks as you can that are stuck to the game bags (don't spend too much time on this as it will be easy to remove all meat and hair once the bags become wet). 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 get ready to go hunting again.

Cleaning Tips

  • 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.
  • If you want your bags to be as white as possible, use a stronger bleach solution and let them soak a little longer. 
  • You can machine wash your bags with warm water on gentle cycle, but your washing machine will not look pretty if you have meat and hair in your bags. We don't recommend it.
  • Always air dry your game bags
