I bought the Convertible Carry-on a few years ago, and have taken it everywhere without mishap. But flying out of Ben Gurion Airport after buying a lot of Palestinian olive oil, one of the bottles cracked and went all over the suitcase. It smelled delicious, but I thought I would have to throw it out. As a last resort, I put it in the tub with about 1/2 cup Spray 'n Wash and some Tide detergent. Soaked it for a few hours, rinsed it, and let it hang to dry. It looks beautiful again, and no oil. Thanks for making a terrific and sturdy carry-on. Ready for my next adventure now! PS, visit Palestine if you can--it was amazing!
