Yep.
And the outcome was?

I've often thought about washing my luggage but usually just end up hosing it down and scrubbing off with the bike cleaning brush.

Oh sorry, I was just answering the question :wink: Yes, outcome was fine. Usually, if they need a wash then I just do them by hand in a bucket though.

I’ve put mine in without issue.

Anything that is welded/glued etc and I wouldn’t, buy anything stitched should be ok. 30*C BTW
