1. Running Packs: take it in the shower with you and give it a good rinse. Use mild soap to clean it and dry it upside down. Avoid throwing it in the washing machine as you risk rubbing the water resistance off the fabric. Make sure to lube your zippers periodically. They will last forever if you do. Please read the specific blog post on how to maintain your zippers.
2. Flasks: it is recommended to clean and rinse your flask(s) after every use.
a) Mouthpiece: can be completely disassembled to be washed. Push the inner plastic piece off the tubular silicon. With the right pressure, it will come off.
b) TPU flask/bladder: use baking soda to remove and clean any residue or organic matter. Dry upside down using a long kitchen spurtle.
c) Tubing: trickier when left alone after a work-out and some moisture was left inside. Mold will grow if the temperature and the moisture level is right. Tube cleaning brushes are inexpensive and help scrape the inside but are inadequate for longer tubes. Handy people use a paracord and pull a knot through. Anyhow, several remedies include soaking in vinegar, baking sodas, or using specifically made cleaning tablets. You'll need to experiment based on the severity of the build-up. Make sure to leave it as dry as you can once rinsed or cleaned. Some are also leaving them in the freezer after being cleaned and dried.
3. Running Belt + Dog Leash: rinse and wash it periodically in water with mild soap. Lube the zipper periodically. Do not throw them in the washing machine as carabiners may damage it. Hang dry and get back out soon!
4. FITLY Towel: the official version is to wash them in cold water and hang them dry. We have always washed and dried them with the rest of our running gears and have yet to experience any issue...
