That is such a good idea! Many of my girlfriends are far too lazy to create this themselves, one of my more crazy friends spends thousands of pounds every few years on bags. As soon as the slightest mark appears she chucks it to the back of the wardrobe and then buys another. I'm not too anal about marks if it's a cheapy knock off but if I splashed out on a designer one I'd love to fashion something like you did. Have you considered making them for particular styles of bags and selling them? I know of at least 8 people who would buy one of these.
juts wondering, is candy check (pink) coated canvas or pvc? :( i have what looks like dark stains on the side maybe from jeans. I tried magic eraser, soapy water with a toothbrush, baby wipes... nothing seems to work :(
please correct me if i am wrong, but I thought that coated canvas is PVC?
This might sound weird, but I have a Liz Claiborne polyvinyl purse that is in good condition, but very dirty. It's very soft and feels similar to leather. I took a regular kitchen sponge and gave it a good scrubbing. This left the purse clean but dull and dry looking. I then took a paper towel and dipped it in vasoline and gave the entire purse a light coat. I wiped it with a clean paper. Looks like new. Brought all the life back to the purse. Not sure this will work for everyone, but my purse looks great.
PVC coated canvas will get stains even due to the rain. But be careful of jeans color transfer and pen which is very difficult to get off. I use Wilson's products wipes, conditioner or spray to clean & condition my Burberry bags and wallets which works great.
i have the same problem with my burberry novacheck pvc. my black slacks transferred its color to the bag. OMG it is so depressing coz i tried really rubbing it with an old toothbrush and dishwashing liquid to no avail! i even used wipe out, still no improvement. now i have to carry it the same way everytime so the stained part would always be hidden ;(
please guys if you happen to discover a procedure that can remove or at least lighten the stain please post it here.
just a little update guys, today i went to a professional bag repairshop to have my burberry wallet stitched and i was using my good ol' burberry pvc bag which i mentioned above. i showed it to the repairman and asked if pen marks and stains can still be removed and he said not anymore =( it could fade alittle but not totally disappear. so there =(
