How do I clean a mouldy rucksack?

Hi,

I've got a 45 litre podsack that's not had much use that's unfortunately a bit discoloured with grey/green mould from being stored in a damp cellar.  Any ideas on how to clean it?  It's a bit big for a domestic washing machine and 'tech wash'.

Thanks,

David

I used soapy water and a hose down outside followed by a standard anti bacterial kitchen surface cleaner just to kill anything else off.

In reply to Kalna_kaza:

Fairly similar to me. Some eco washing up liquid and left the rucksacks on the washing line for a week on the hunch that uv might kill the mould. Seems to have worked but I haven’t been allowed to bring the worst affected sack into the house. Looking forward to hearing if there are better ways of doing it.

In a bath? Tech wash and rinse off. Repeat if necessary

I always techwash in the bath as previous experience with using washing machines has shown me that it's virtually impossible to clean other detergents out of their systems.

That's what I was thinking... surely most/all frames are removeable?
