    I live in Hanoi and spring weather is terrible with extremely high humidity (can be up to 95%). Mould & midew grow everywhere includes my beloved neverfull :sad:. Last year similar thing happened and I handwashed it with shower gel. This year I was lazy so just put it in a mesh bag, run a delicate-plus cycle, cold water with normal detergent. The bag came out super clean with fresh smell. I didn't use any conditioner for the leather part.

    Here is the result :biggrin:.

  2. Holy smoke!! That is awesome. Are all the leather parts okay? Wow!
     
  3. That's impressive! It came out beautiful
     
  4. What!?! I can't believe that didn't damage the bag. It looks great!!
     
  5. Wow, I am speechless. That is truly amazing.
     
  6. Oh my gosh, you are brave! The result is fantastic!!!
     
  7. Oh my goodness! It looks amazing!

    Thanks for sharing!
     
  8. I would never have been so brave, but I can see why you did it. Not to do anything the mould would eventually destroy the bag anyway. I am so grateful I dont have this problem where I live. I think the bag came out great though & you need a bravery medal !!
     
  9. Woah!!! :amazed:

    That's amazing! Brave indeed!
     
  10. Wow

  11. All leather parts are more than ok. They are soft, glossy as usual and I don't think they need any special conditioner :biggrin:.
     
  12. WOW!! Who would have known?? My SA did tell me recently about washing my bags with Dove soap and water ~ may be old news to some ~ but she did not mention the washing machine! :lol:So happy it worked out well for you.
     
  13. That looks brand new!! You're very brave, I'd never do that, but it looks great!!
     
  14. My heart stopped, you are so brave!
