I have a lovely canvas holdall type bag with leather straps which I use as an extra bag for eg small amounts of groceries/my book/taking on a plane/bunging bits and bobs in. It was fairly expensive but I don't want to get suckered into dry cleaning it every few months (which is what the label recommends).
Has anyone machined washed a bag with leather straps? Was thinking a 30 mins gentle cycle and no spin. I am pretty blaise about such things normally but am wibbling a bit on this one as I do love this bag and would be v upset to ruin it.
Other alternative is in the sink, trying to avoid getting the straps wet, I suppose. Might be more sensible.
