Handbags, luggage, boots, shoes, and other accessories made of fabric are usually not washable. Even items made of commonly washable fabrics such as cotton and nylon risk losing their structure if washed. Instead, spot treat stains and freshen linings. For leather and suede bags, be sure to only treat the lining!
Do not use paper towels and certain types of sponges because they may leave lint or residue behind.
Remove soap and dirt. Dampen cloth (as needed) and repeat the process until satisfied. Be sure to remove all soap.
Freshen: Freshen and deodorize by spraying both interior and exterior with your favorite fabric freshener, such as Delicate Spray.
Items such as upholstery, drapery, carpeting, and mattresses are often not launderable via traditional methods. The Laundress offers options for safely treating stains and odors on these items to the best of our ability. For more tailored advice for your individual item, contact the manufacturer.
