Care & Cleaning

What is the best way to clean my PackIt?

Hand wash the interior of your PackIt with mild soap and warm water or wipe thoroughly with an all-purpose antibacterial wipe. You can spot clean the exterior with a gentle sponge. You must allow the PackIt to air dry completely with the flap open before freezing to prevent frost from forming on the bag. PackIts are not washing machine-, dryer-, dishwasher-, or microwave-safe. Do not use bleach or any other chemicals other than laundry detergent to clean the bag.

Will condensation form inside the PackIt?

It depends on the external environment and the items placed inside the bag. The PackIt is intended for use with frozen, refrigerated or room-temperature food and drinks. If warm items are placed inside the frozen cooler or if the cooler is used in a hot environment, some condensation may occur. However, the bag is waterproof so any moisture inside will not leak through to the exterior.

Are PackIt coolers mold resistant?

Though freezing the PackIt may kill some forms of mold that would form in other coolers, we can’t guarantee it. We recommend regular cleaning of the PackIt to prevent bacteria from growing inside. If you use the cooler on most weekdays, it’s best to clean it weekly. Whether you’re using soap and water or a wet wipe, allow the bag to air-dry completely before freezing to avoid the formation of frost.
