How do you guys keep your white Chanel's from getting dirty and discolouring with age?? Im 99% positive I will get my first white Chanel this week but dont really want to spend the money and have it turn a horrible yellowish colour!! Please help!! TIA x
i have a white GST that has been sitting in the cupboard for over a year as I am terrified of dirtying it.
It seems the consensus on this thread is to pretreat the bag with AppleCare. However, the SA I purchased it from warned me specifically not to use an treatment products on the bag as the leather is already pretreated. She also warned me that there will be color transfer from jeans which cannot be removed. They are also unable to redye the color for me.
This is my one and only Chanel baby and so I really want to take good care of it. (sometimes i wonder WHY i bought the white...) Will the ladies who have white bag/bags please just reassure me that i am NOT killing the bag by using AppleCare?
I have the evening star flap which is patent white but the straps are just leather (not patent leather). One day I noticed black marks all over the straps! I was recommended "Meltonian all-purpose cleaner and conditioner". This took out the black marks and now the leather is clean again! I am very happy with the results!
Surprisingly, the white caviar is pretty low maintenance. I use baby wipes to clean the bag after several usage and that's basically it. I've had it for 3 years and it's still look as new. But again, I do baby it quite a bit. I never set it down on the ground, it's always on my lap. If I put in on a chair or a table, I would wipe it down with my hand.
White is the easiest to take care of. If I get any transfer I just use meltonian shoe polish in white and apply to the area and buff it off. Very easy. And I have never experienced any yellowing my in my flaps.
i want to buy some lamb skin white color purse.
but i always worry about ...change color soon, can see used mark easily...
so never have in my purse collection.
mine is mostly dark color. but love light color too.
how is your white color lamb bag?
