  1. There’s some really helpful information in this post. I especially like the idea of wrapping baking soda or green tea in fabric or newspaper and placing it inside shoes to keep them smelling fresh. Most backpacks can be washed when they get really bad – I’m thinking kids school backpacks here, but it’s better if you have a front loading machine which is gentler on items. Good tip about the tents too, as we have a tendency to just stuff them into their bag rather than folding.
