The ChipmunkBag will resist odor well as it is made from synthetic material (nylon). However, when the time comes to wash your bag, follow these steps:
1) Unzip the divider. You can wash the divider as well, just have it detached from the bag so it doesn't unnecessarily pull at the seams.
2) Remove the metal closing clasp. We recommend doing this so the clasp doesn't damage your washing machine.
3) Wash on a gentle cycle with cold water and a mild detergent.
4) Hang dry.
Please note that it is not recommended to wash your ChipmunkBag each time you do laundry. Constant washing will break down the materials and quality of the bag. However, washing your bag periodically is expected.
