    Default Cleaning and care?

    How do you ladies clean your Balenciaga?

    I've never owned one so I don't know what would be the best way to clean and maintain the new love of my life!

    Its so pretty I dont even want to hang it with the rest of the handbags on my rack!

    a lot of people use one of the following brands, but i don't have any experience with Balenciagas:

    (1) Apple Garde Leather Care
    (2) Lovin My Bags
    (3) Wilsons

    I wouldn't use the actual heavy-duty cleaner unless it's really dirty.
    Wishlist: get out of debt

    so totally :banned2:

    I have always had good experiences with the Apple products. The Apple Care is a great conditioner with light cleaning and the Apple Garde is a wonderful rain & stain repellent! HTH!

    Aghhh! My 4 year old sibling slammed the car door on my tassel and it was instantly cut off! I swore a spare tassel came with my bag, but now I can't find it! I'm turned my room over looking for it but no such luck.


    *Correction: apparently my mother ever so kindly threw the shipping box (with it inside) away yesterday, and my father took it to the dump along with other bulky items! I'm so upset! Rawrrr.

    Balenciaga didn't include extra tassels this year. But don't worry you can order replacement tassels.

    I have used Apple Guard products on mine before and I totally agree with Zombie that the Protectant Spray is the best! Your bags black, right? I usually don't treat my black bags because you really can't see if they get a little dirty but the protectant spray would help keep it rain proof in case it gets wet or something spills on it.

    I agree with zombiegirl and QC about applegarde products- I've used the cleaner and conditioner and it works wonders! I've also used the spray repellent on my lighter bags.

    I've also used lovinmybags' For Handles Only on a couple of my lighter bags.
