cleaning canvas bags

  1. there are lots of threads about cleaning leather bags but what about bags that are made from canvas? does anyone know if i can use Apple Suede and Nubuck Cleaner for canvas bags?
  2. I'm wondering for my L.L. bean tote, too. It's navy on white. I wonder if I can just throw it in the wash? I'd be afraid it'd lose its shapes or its colors would run.
