I just recently bought a sale bag and it had a few scratches. I called Chanel and asked if they could buff them out. The SA suggested rubbing either Windex or tooth paste on the scratches! I was VERY hesitant to try it at firts but, let me tell you, it works!!!!! Of course, the scratches were not really deep but still noticeable! After rubbing Windex on them, they almost diappeared!!!! I "treated" the bag a few times and it looks much better now!!!!

Seriously bag-addicted
Windex? really? Did it affect the color or the sheen in any way? Wow!

Thank you! I didn't take any before/after pics because I honestly didn't think Windex would work (who would've though????). I wish I did though!!!!!

Nope, nothing changed! Except, of course, for scratches...they're almost gone now!

Bonjour!
Interesting! I would think the alcohol in Windex would damage the bag. Good to know.

Well, I asked the SA if Windex was safe and she said that it was! Plus, my bag is black, so she said you can be more experimental with it (not that I wanted to be more experiemental with my CC bag!)!
