I only own ONE Vera Bradley purse (neighbor's adopted me as their "Mom" and gave it to me for Mothers Day). So..I've been using it since May..and it needs a bath! lol It has the washing instructions on the tag..but I need to know if I leave the plastic stabilizer in the bottom..or remove it. I tried taking it out..but it's not wanting to come out!

Gee I love the internet....did a search "how to wash a Vera Bradley purse" and here is some information...but not how to remove that piece, but it does seem like you should if it's not plastic.

Here is one persons washing instructions...have to scroll down to read. one thing to dois to close the zipper.

When I wash mine, I just remove the hard bottom and zip it up and wash in machine on gentle. I dry it by hanging it on the door knob with zipper open and when outside is dry, I turn it inside out and let it dry some more.

All is well! Took some fighting, but I did get the stabilizer thingy out of the bottom. Glad I did..it's cardboard. Thick cardboard...but cardboard! Mine doesn't have a zipper, so I just snapped it shut. It's hanging and drying right now! Sure looks a lot better!!

Thanks!!

Glad you to the time and effort to get the cardboard out....and that it washed well. You would think they would put a note in bags telling you this part wasn't washable OR why not find a plastic that would work...

I wash mine by hand just like all the others said. No problem at all. Hang to dry.

"You would think they would put a note in bags telling you this part wasn't washable..."

Vera Bradley does include a small tag on the inside of each bag that has a removable bottom piece. The rag reads:

"This Vera Bradley bag has a solid base. Please remove base before washing."

The only problem is they don't give detailed instructions on how to get the darn thing out LOL!

I recently washed mine, but reluctantly thinking it would pucker up, fade or whatever. But it looks good as new. The bottom in mine just lifts out, must be cardboard covered with the matching fabric. Watch their site--they sometimes have some good markdowns. Not sure if I'll get another print, their blacks are so nice and black. That might be next.

I removed the bottom cardboard (there was a tag that came with the purse) and washed it in my washing machine with two towels. Line dried. I had to wash it, it came from my DDIL and they have cats. Everytime I used it I was sneezing and my eyes itched like crazy. It came out beautiful! My bag is one of the very large ones.
