one more questions ladies! i just received my apple cleaner and was wondering, so do i just clean away even at the white threads on the jumbo? please help i wanna do this right.... i can't imagine sitting here cleaning every diamond.
So, I guess I am the party pooper who had a bad experience with a white caviar jumbo flap. It was such a proud moment when I got it (on my birthday, in New York) and I treated it so well. Unfortunately only two weeks later, my husband commented that the back of my back was "dark and smudgy" and he was right!!! Apparently, my black clothing had rubbed off onto my gorgeous bag!! I tried everything to get it clean but apparently, the color can rub onto the bag and sort of burn into the leather. That's what the SA at Neiman Marcus told me. So, sadly that was the end of my gorgeous white jumbo flap. The good news is that the Chanel store where I bought it was very accommodating and let me return it since they had told me that there would be no color transfer when I bought it. I still miss that bag. Just bought it in black with gold HW, which is fabulous, but that white bag was just so dreamy. So, better luck to the rest of you!!!!
LucieLovesCoco: I can understand the pain :( Usually light coloured bags are more prone to color transfer, which i think it happen to your lovely white caviar jumbo. You can pre-treat white caviar against future stains and possible color transfer. If anything happens, you can too send your bag back to Chanel Store for refurbishment (though my quite surprised they can't do anything about it anymore as I heard that it can still be redyed back to original color)
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.
