I need some help ladies. I've finally decided to use my tattersall travel tote. And it has started to get dirty. Will sending it to the dry cleaners help? Or has any of you tried to clean this particular tote?

Thanks all!

I've been wondering the same thing, so I'm curious to see the responses. I bought a pre-owned white bumble bee tote last year that needs some TLC. I'm not sure what to do because the white fabric and the suede flowers both could use some cleaning.

I've sent a signature print jacquard bag, a suede coach wallet and a large patchwork bag to the dry cleaners, and they did a great job of having them cleaned up. They sent them to a leather specialist and he did the actual work. It took a little longer than normal, I think that my stuff was at the cleaners for about 3 weeks. It wasn't expensive either. I say go for it.

no dont do it!!! If you want to have your bag cleaned send it to a place that specializes in cleaning bags. There is actuily signs at the dry cleaners around here saying they will not clean bags. I asked about the signs and they said they have had bad experiances with trying to clean bags, and even when they warn people that, they have had people try to sue them for a new bag (not saying you would, but thats the reason they told me)

Thank you for your responses ladies... at least now I know there's always an option of sending a bag to a specialist for cleaning...

I put one of my hobo bags in the washer and it came out clean lol. I dont reccomend it in case your material was different. But I was desperate. It was my first bag, and I feel while carrying it and got blood and dirt all over it. It came really clean
