Well, obviously you totally can, but, phonetically, it’s close. The following is an ever-evolving care center to help you get the most out of your Machir Bag. It includes helpful instructions and suggestions to keep your backpack, tote or school bag looking great for years to come.
Rather than machine washing, consider using a rag or sponge to spot clean your Machir Bag. When absolutely necessary, hand-wash using a gentle powder laundry detergent, taking care not to soak any part of the bag. (Soaking does not damage the bag but can cause certain areas to lose shape.)
Always air dry your Machir Bag. Machir Bags are not designed for machine drying and may lose their shape or become damaged if you attempt to dry them using a machine. Hanging the bag upside down often yields the best results, helping to speed the drying process by preventing water from pooling in corners of the bag.
Our bags are made tough but are not flame-resistant! The polyester and nylon fabrics present in most Machir Bags will burn or melt if exposed to direct flame or extreme heat. Take care not to place them (or yourself) in any direct source of heat or flame.
Great news! The fabrics we use for our bags — including nylons, polyesters, and Machir signature material (a durable houndstooth proprietary material) — are relatively stain-resistant and easy to clean. For basic stains like oil and grease, warm soapy water with a liquid detergent will usually do the trick. If the stain persists, blott the area with denatured or isopropyl alcohol before washing again.
Don’t let your beautiful bag suffer the ill effects of a poorly-made pen!
That forgotten chocolate melted in your bag, huh? Happens to the best of us.

Every Machir Bag is already a beautiful work of art — no need to accentuate.
