    Default How to clean a coach tote bag??

    Hi
    I bought a COACH Scribble large tote on ebay and its kinda dirty on the outside and was wondering if i could put it in the washing machine on delicate cycle with some shout out sprayed on it?And then just let it air dry would this ruin the bag?

    I have machine washed a small scribble tote. It turned out much better than if I'd let it stay the way it was. Just use gentle cycle and a gentle soap. I spot treated the worst grime areas with a little tide and a very soft toothbrush to scrub the detergent in. Even putting it inside of a net bag for "delicates" wouldn't hurt. Good luck.

    Did I read this correctly? I would love to see a picture of your bag. That's crazy the fabric didn't bleed.

    haha yes. I have washed a couple of the smaller scribble lunch type totes. I also washed a large white Hampton tote that had Brit tan leather accents. That one ended up looking much more clean but because it was all white, the brown dye from the leather did bleed a little bit onto the white. I was able to improve the bleed marks with a Tide to go Pen so it was wearable. So yes, you do have to be careful. I"ve done a lot of bag "rehabbing" and Coach bags are really tough, but the newer lined bags probably need more special care. But in desperation, I did wash some and mostly, I've had great results
