5-step guide to washing a Vera Bradley ID holder
Prepare the ID Holder
Remove all cards, cash, or other items from the ID holder. This ensures that the contents won’t get damaged during the washing process.
Spot Clean Stains (if necessary)
If there are any visible stains on the ID holder, spot clean them before washing. Use a mild stain remover or a gentle soap and gently rub the stained area with a cloth or soft brush. This helps to pre-treat the stains and improve the chances of removing them during the wash.
Use a Gentle Cycle and Cold Water
Place the ID holder in a mesh laundry bag or a pillowcase to protect it during the wash cycle. Set your washing machine to a delicate or gentle cycle with cold water. Cold water helps to preserve the colors and prevent any potential fading or bleeding.
Use a Mild Detergent
Add a small amount of mild detergent to the washing machine. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can damage the fabric. A gentle, fabric-friendly detergent will suffice for cleaning the ID holder effectively.
After the wash cycle is complete, remove the ID holder from the laundry bag or pillowcase. Lay it flat on a clean towel or hang it up to air dry. Avoid using a dryer, as high heat can shrink or damage the fabric. Allow the ID holder to dry completely before reinserting your cards and other items.
