HEY BACKPACKERS: Here's How to "De-Germ" Your Contaminated Backpacks!

The Backpack, one of humanity’s most favored tools for secure traveling on foot, is also the carrier of more germs than a public toilet. We bring our carriers with us almost everywhere – to school, work, the gym, on a hike, or somewhere over night –but it’s not often that we truly consider the many surfaces we’ve set them upon.


If you are not selective with where you place your backpack, you are doing yourself a disservice. Cross-contamination can increase the spread of harmful bacteria from the floor, ground, and public spaces onto surfaces, such as your kitchen counter or bathroom sink. It sounds impossible to avoid, but with Higene you can decrease your chances of catching a nasty, preventable illness. Our multipurpose formula immediately prevents smelly odors from being detected by absorbing those funky aroma-compounds, while also halting the growth of harmful bacteria by immobilizing it and eliminating its presence. Whether you wash your laundry on the day of treatment or the following week, Higene gets rid of the bad stuff so you can wash your clothes when you have the time. Remember, Higene is a pretreatment, not a dry detergent – wash your clothes!

Take advantage of the sterilizing and deodorizing features of Higene to decrease your chances of catching a nasty, preventable “backpack” illness:
