    I have allergies so I use euclan for everything. It's really gentle and gets stuff cleaner than any of the regular detergents.


      I broke the rules too--on my shop bags. I put them on the hand wash cycle in my front-loading washing machine, and turned off the spin cycle. Pulled them out, brushed off the excess water with a towel, and air dried. I am obviously not going to do it every week (maybe once a year?) and I am fully aware that the guarantee is now void. They were very dirty.

      I've washed my Synapse successfully in the bathtub with Ecover delicate wash, and it turned out well. I am amazed at how quickly the bags dry-- the fabric doesn't really get wet with the water-resistant coatings.
      TB Stuff: Cadet (steel/iberian), Pilot (verde/steel), Synapse 19 (Black/Wasabi), Synapse 25 (New Nordic/NW Sky), Swift (Aubergine/NW Sky), Makers Bag (Black/Steel), Aeronaut 30 (Black/Zest), Aeronaut 45 (Black/Ultraviolet).
