How To: Cleaning Nylon Prada Wallet and Bag

Recently I noticed a few of my Prada bags are dirty. Well, taking gal pal's advise, I wiped a Prada nylon wallet (with grainy leather interior) with a mild soap solution.  Becoming slightly adventurous, I quickly rinsed off outside of the wallet with water and dry with a towel.  Afterward, the wallet was air dried for about 2 hours. I really should have wiped clean with a damp towel repetitively instead of rinsing off under a faucet. Becoming more comfortable, I gently hand-washed nylon totes and a backpack with mild soap, rinse with water, press almost dry with large clean towel and air dry for a couple of hours. Gal pal threw her nylon Prada backpack in a net laundry bag and washed on gentle cycle. I don't know if I am adventurous enough to do that to my bag but hers came out alright. How do you clean your nylon bags?

  2. I washed a nylon purse in a similar way. I find you really need to get all the water out or it dries strangely.

  4. eek i'd be scared to throw in the washer/dryer too. I think i'd just use a damp cloth with very little soap and spot clean.

  5. I have never owned a nylon bag, so I haven't yet encountered this situation - luckily. It sounds intimidating. :/

  7. I am very tempted to try. Savvy Sis did the same thing with her Prada nylon tote (well it was a baby baby for her) and it came out fine as well. Most friends who threw Prada totes into washers used it as a baby bag. I guess mild soap with damp clothe won't do it uh.....

  8. I got my liners in the mail last week, which was a nice surprise since I forgot that I requested my free sample.

    Try the delicate cycle and no spin. It should work just fine.

  10. Omg I envy your bravery and now I envy your skills as well. A few of my very expensive designer bags (Prada and LV) are dirty and I'm too terrified to wash them for fear of ruining them!!
