Step 2

Turn the bag upside down over a trash can and shake gently to get rid of loose residue.

Step 3

Wipe down the interior of the bag with unscented baby wipes to remove most of the buildup.


Step 4

Drizzle a few drops of mild laundry detergent over a damp rag and wipe away any heavier buildup. Rinse and wring out the rag, then wipe over the inside of the bag to remove any leftover soap.

Mist a light coat of hairspray over any ink stains and blot with the damp rag.
