How to Clean a Coleman Sleeping Bag

In many outdoor and sporting circles, Coleman is a name synonymous with camping equipment and supplies. The company began to manufacture products at the beginning of 1900, and now manufactures tents, lanterns, beds, sleeping bags and other supplies. The regular use of the sleeping bag means that you will need to wash it to remove dirt, sweat and other contaminants and protect the bag of stains and odors.
