    Default What products do you use to clean your bag?

    Just wondering what products you use to clean you LV's .
    I just have a Mono Speedy and have got various ideas from people on what to use.
    Some suggestions were:
    Lovingmyhandbags products
    Wilsons
    Just Baby wipes.

    Any one know which is the best by experience?

    As far as I know Wilsons is not meant for untreated leather. Lovin' My Bags is probably the best, its pH balanced and non-darkening.

    I'd like to know too! I heard baby wipes work really good
    *Dumb me* Brought my damier speedy to a pub, and guess what? My bf's drunken ass friend spills beer all over it I tried wiping it off with water in the bathroom, but I know it is still there! My bag is gonna stink, I'm sooo mad!

    i used baby wipes to clean my Monogram NF GM straps
    but my straps has start to become honey brown , due to the wipes or naturally will change color.
    But it is consider the cheapest way of cleaning the canvas leather.
    i have used the wipes to clean the dirt on my coach white strip too and it is much cleaner than before and of course, you have to air the bag lst before keeping it again before it turn mouldy

    Make sure there is no alcohol in the baby wipes, first of all, then I like Apple Care for my own bags, I've had good luck.
    Oh, and the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for darker marks but be careful, test on a spot that doesn't show first.

    Ya. i make sure the ingredients do not contain alcohol. cos it will stain the leather. anyway, a reasonable budget of maintaining the leather bags .

    I've used..
    - normal white eraser on the vachetta and it works a treat. Then moisturise with Apple Leather Care.
    - Magic Eraser, but I freaked out cause the leather turned dark when you first use the wet eraser but it lightened again eventually
    - Apple leather cleaner sparingly - only once the vachetta has turned a little bit honey
    - Baby wipes (non-alcoholic) for little spots.

    But whatever you do, make sure you moisturise after as the leather will be dry.

    We already have a thread on this somewhere...I will see if I can find it.

    *EDIT*
    Here is one: Has anyone ever used...

    and another: Before and After Pic of my vachetta cleaned with white pencil eraser

    We really should merge these threads or make a cleaning and care sub forum.
