How to Wash a Vera Bradley Bag
Before I went away to college, I had no idea what a Vera Bradley bag was :( I guess I was sheltered when it came to material things like that. Well all of a sudden I started seeing these adorable floral bags in all shapes and sizes, and they even sold them in the campus bookstore! I was hooked on Vera Bradley from that moment on.
I have fallen in love with Vera Bradley bags because there are so many color options to choose from, they come in a plethora of shapes and sizes (I'm dreaming of owning the luggage one day), and they can be washed!
Before having William being able wash one of my purses wasn't that big of a deal. I have always been careful about taking care of my things, but now my darling little boy doesn't know that the Coach purse I got for Christmas doesn't need any orange juice :(
That is where my lovely Vera Bradley comes in. If William spills something, I can just wash the bag easy peasy. (I actually used to be terrified of washing them because I was worried I would mess them up)
The Vera Bradley website states: "Machine wash cold, gentle cycle, only non-chlorine bleach as needed, line dry". This is basically all you need to do, but I throw in an extra step to protect my bags and it is super simple. A pillowcase.
As always, make sure you double check that your item can be machine washed. Vera Bradley has a couple items that can only be spot cleaned. If you're not sure if your item can be washed just check on their website because it should be listed there.
