Cleaning my camel

What is the best method to clean a camelpack? Is it safe to use a little bleach and water and soak for a short period? Thanks in advance.

well, you know, you have to right click on the images to get the url directly. that took a while.



what really took the time was filling out the marketing survey/email-trawling-ploy so they'd enter me in their sweepstakes.

This may sound a bit wierd, but I toss my empty reservoir in the freezer. Nothing grows in it, and it feels good on the back for a while .. plus, I am very lazy.

i add some SCOPE mouthwash diluted with some water.
nothing grows on alcohol and it makes anything you put in it minty fresh.

Don't forget to brick it before you use it for maximum capacity.

Cheers...Gary
