    Default Cleaning White Leather Bag?

    I am looking for some advice on how to clean blue pen marks from my white leather handbag

    The bag is not a designer one, but it is all leather and one of my favorites.
    Does someone have any ideas/tips/suggestions on how to clean and make it look spiffy again?


    Thank you SOOOOO much!

    I'm not sure how well this works on leather, but hairspray gets any kind of ink out, from sharpies to pen. Just spray some on, let it sit for 5 minutes, and clean it off.

    If you're wary about doing that, try taking it in to a shoe/bag store where they do cleanings, and they should be able to help.

    I got a small pen mark on my white leather Juicy, I used alcohol wipes (very, very sparingly) and baby wipes and it got it right out. I'd be super careful with the the alcohol though, as it can dull a shiny finish.

    Yikes! Good luck with getting that out! Hair spray does work wonders on ink on stuff but idk what it would do to your bag.... test first? *This is why I BAN white from my home!*

    I find baby wipes help a bit with denim transfer to my white Gaucho.
