    Man, you're right. That is wrong. Even if you spill marinara sauce on the baby.

    "Just like a baby, wash your TOM BIHN bag with gentle soap in the kitchen sink."

    No! I'm glad you posted it. I think you brought up a good point and posted about something a lot of people ask us about/already do. Some people listen to our warnings and still choose to wash their bags in the washing machine (a few of my family members included) and feel that the risk of the bag not being covered by the guarantee is outweighed by the convenience of machine washing.

    i can understand if someone may not have realized that it isn't a good idea to put a bag into the laundry machine. but i can't believe anyone would think of putting a baby into a laundry machine!!! and they make a detergent for this???

    babies, no matter how dirty they may get, must be washed gently by hand - not in the laundry machine!!!











    sorry - i couldn't resist - in one of those moods this evening. you understand, right?

    :D

    Washing your bag in a washing machine will void the guarantee, period. Even if you use laundry detergent for babies and the delicate cycle in a front-loading eco-friendly washing machine!

    Here's what I would do if my bag was doused with marinara sauce:
    Thoroughly rinse the bag off in the kitchen sink
    Turn bag inside out
    Fill the kitchen sink with warm water
    Add dish soap or gentle laundry detergent (maybe something nicely scented to get rid of that marinara smell)
    Let the bag soak for a while
    Swish the bag around in the water, scrubbing the bag against itself
    Drain the sink

    If especially dirty, repeat the above steps. If not, rinse thoroughly. Lay bag on towel until it's not drippy anymore, then hang on indoor clothes drying rack. If it's just a Cafe bag, it should dry overnight.

    hey darcy,

    any recommendations for those whose bags get friendly friendly with the marinara sauce?

    everybody loves a good marinara! - except those who have an allergy to tomatoes.

    how about a delicate cycle where the washing machine doesn't cause a lot of agitation to what's inside?
