    Default Tips on how to care for Patent Leather


    Pictured Above: Versace Mini Quilted Patent Leather Satchel

    I love patent leather handbags. In fact, I would say I'm pretty much obsessed with patent leather. Something about patent leather is just so edgy, but yet sexy to me. Regular leather can be so boring sometimes, and I see patent leather as the "more" fun version of leather.

    What really catches my eye about patent leather is the shininess of it. I always thought regular leather can be so dull looking, then you have patent leather that has that shiny sparkle to it.

    I currently have two patent leather handbags, that I take very good care of. I will admit though, patent leather is really high maintenance.

    The best way to take care of a patent leather handbag, is to simply not use them as everyday bag. I say this for two reasons: Patent Leather loses it shine after a while when used everyday and it also scratches very easily. One little scratch on the leather and it's there forever. If you aren't the type of person that is extra careful with your handbags, then it's probably not in your best interest to get a patent leather handbag.

    On the other hand, patent leather is very easy to clean. If you ever spill soda, or get food on the bag you can easily clean it! Soda or food would normally stain a canvas or light leather handbag. With patent leather, you can easily clean the leather with a wash cloth, water, and some soap.

    Patent leather has it's pro's and con's, but it looks amazing on a handbag. If you don't have a patent leather handbag I suggest buying one and I promise you'll never regret it!

    I like patent leather, especially the new kind of patent leather that's wrinkled or crinkled because it's slouchy and requires hardly any care.

    OMG if someone can help me with getting STAINS off a patent bag i would love them soooooo much!

    it's a WHITE Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Patent Leather Wallet, i love it to death it was my first luxury wallet, but after using it for just a few months, it got REALLY dirty and now it's an off white colour and i've tried EVERYTHING~!

    i've tried: Toothpaste, olive oil, nailpolish remover, rubber, petrol.. you name it i've tried it!

    i have given up for sometime now that it's uncleanable, but perhaps someone can HELP ME!?

    or does anyone know of a way to DYE the patent into a different colour?

    Couple comments on this one:

    1. Magic Eraser has been working great for me to remove certain stains/scuffs from my patent leather shoes and bags. Do a test spot on darker colored patent leather in an 'unseen' area since different material can vary based on the manufacturer.

    2. It's disappointing to think that just because a bag is patent leather it cant be used frequently. I prefer to use a purse hook like the one I got on so that the only time it can be damaged is if I'm clumsy enough to knock into something. It prevents me from having to worry if there is something sharp or dirty on the floor/chair/counter nearby.
