I have a leather hold all that I managed to spill icing sugar inside (don't ask).. Anyhoo, we're away to a posh hotel tomorrow night and I meant to get it professionally dry cleaned but forgot and left it too late. I have wiped it down, hoovered the inside, but imagine there's still sugar in seams etc and don't want it all over my clothes.. Do you think it'd be ok to pop it in a delicates wash?
If not, it'll be an Adidas hold all as our luggage is in storage and I can't get to it today.. Organised aren't I?
You could use a brush to move it out of the seams, then hoover. Use the crevice tool attachment. I really wouldn't wash it in the machine, it will destroy the leather and the finish. It's the equivalent to putting a pair of leather shoes in the wash.
Stick tape may also be able to lift off any residue that the hoover can't get.
I certainly wouldn't put it in the machine. If it was me I think I might hoover out the inside first and then try vanish carpet spray. Not if it was a designer bag worth thousands though! Or I think you might be able to get a dry cleaning type of spray. That would be less than �50.
