Per advice from Pinterest – which we all know should be taken with a shaker of salt – I popped my sad looking Longchamp pliage bag in the washing machine on gentle cycle in an attempt to give it a new lease on life.
The results were pleasantly surprising. The first picture is how it looks now, followed by three before pictures and similar after pictures. As you can see, there are still a few spots on the bottom – what did I set that thing in??!! – overall it looks like it did 2 years ago and I’d recommend anyone who owns a pliage bag that’s seen better days give it a go.
