The first day of school beckons.

But before you head back to school, have you mastered the science of a perfectly packed backpack?

From helping you be more organized to decorating your locker to doing your chores, these backpack essentials from 3M are must-haves on your first day of school.

Scientific solutions for a perfect first day of school

  1. Your picture-perfect memories deserve to be admired. Adorn your locker or workspace with Scotch® Wall-Safe Tape and Command™ Picture Hanging Strips. They stick securely and come off cleanly on wood, walls, metal, mirrors, or glass.
  2. Take your studying to the extreme. Get organized for the semester no matter where you like to work! Post-it® Extreme Notes make leaving notes and reminders simple, rain or shine!
  3. Trying to look sharp but those clingy pieces of lint are cramping your style? Rely on the Scotch-Brite™ Lint Roller Refills to keep your clothes crisp and clean. For extra stubborn fluff or fuzz, try Scotch-Brite™ 50% Stickier Lint Roller.
  4. Did you forget to clean out your lunchbox? (It’s okay, we all do it). Never fear. Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Dishwand, Scotch-Brite® Scrub Dots Heavy Duty Dishwand Refills, and the Scotch-Brite® Heavy Duty Scrub Sponge can help get rid of even the most stubborn messes in your favourite tupperware.
  5. You play hard, and sometimes it catches up to you. Whether it’s a small paper cut or a pesky bruise, protect it with the Nexcare™ Waterproof Bandage. If you pick up a sprain, use Tensor™ Sport Self-Adhering Athletic Bandage to secure your ankles, wrists, knees, or elbows so you can get back to the playground or the bleachers.
  6. Organize your keys, belts, jewellery, and pencil cases with some flair! Hang copper Command™ Small Metallic Hooks on your walls for a trendy, yet functional solution.
