Can Luggage be Dry Cleaned ? Many people has asked me this question 1000's of time. And my answer is it totally depends upon the luggage that what treatment it needs to be cleaned. Luggage are not cheap products that once it becomes dirty or a small point of leather or fabric torn out then you put the whole thing in the garbage.
Luggage are designed to be tough and durable and can face adverse weather conditions and the gentle handling from the baggage handler. (See the video)
