Yes, they’re washable! July 10 2015
Mary received a Casco Bay Tote as a gift. When she emailed us asking if it was safe to wash, we responded with washing instructions—and we were so happy to hear (and see!) the sparkling outcome:
“I apologize for the lousy photography, but I wanted you to see my beautifully clean bag! This was a Christmas gift last year, and although I initially hesitated to use it because there was so much white material, I liked it so much I couldn't resist. It has had almost a year of heavy use, bottom and sides had picked up dirt and a few stains from car/house floors and the handles were soiled from being carried so much. I followed your care directions, (also gave the handles a couple of shots of Shout), and you can see the results - Excellent!” -Sincerely - Mary - one very happy customer!
Mary, thank you for the tip! We hope you get many more years of enjoyment from your tote. Hope you get many more years of enjoyment from your tote!
Since it may not have been totally clear when you received your tote, our care instructions that are now included in all packages, note up front whether or not a bag can be machine washed.
