I actually was curious after my daughters white bow had gotten dirty so I threw it in the wash to see if it would get clean and also hold up and it did. My Emma used to take her bows out and throw them on the ground, which 9 times out of 10 ended in the only mud puddle, oily spot, etc. I tell my customers that they are machine washable, but I do advise to only wash with small loads or delicate loads (just to be safe).
