Stinky Camelbak!

I noticed my Camelbak starting to get Funked up, so I threw it in the wash today. I'll dry it out in the sun and see if that works.

What have you guys done to clean up your Camelbak?

try using water and baking soda then shake it to make bubbles, leave it for goog hour, then rinse thoroughly, you'll have a clean and nice smelling camel back

Have you put in anything other than water into your pack?

I just throw mine in the washing machine on cold and gentle cycle. Then air dry it. Comes out good as new.

I was talking about the actual pack itself, not the bladder. I haven't really washed my bladder out. I haven't gotten any foul tastes either. Maybe if you use it every day like I do, there is less chance of mildew or bacteria, or whatever gets in there.
