While I was in Palms Springs in scorching temperatures, the coating on my leather sunglasses case got all over everything in my LV Speedy. I haven't cleaned the Speedy yet, I'm not sure where to send it so if someone has any suggestions I'll take that too. In the mean time I used a little nail polish remover & q-tips to remove the melted coating from everything else including my YSL patent leather make-up case. While it didn't damage anything else I used the nail polish remover on, it did take the shine off the areas I applied it to the make-up case and now it looks terrible. Does anyone know what I can do to restore the the leather?
"Restore the shine of the patent leather with petroleum jelly. Put about one tsp. of petroleum jelly on a clean, soft cloth. Use the cloth to apply the petroleum jelly to the surface of the leather. Be sure to thoroughly rub the jelly into the leather and do not apply additional amounts of petroleum jelly. Too much jelly will leave a residue that can attract dust and stain hosiery."
I have a sticker residue issue on patent leather. After buying a beautiful Marc Jacobs patent leather wallet at a vintage boutique, the store put a sales sticker inside on the patent leather and RUINED the wallet- I can't get the rest of the sticker off, or some of the residue. Any advice?
Okay Purse Forum enthusiastists! I actually solved my own problem with the removal of adhesive residue from my Marc Jacobs patent leather wallet. I read and read and finally found something that sounded reasonable: Windex! While it worked for me (and I rubbed and rubbed), I still would like to know if it has worked for others? It didn't destroy the finish, and took all the ugly sticky off with no consequences. Yay! Good luck with cleaning patent leather- it is a pain! :)
I am working on getting a foul odor out of a Coach handbag I bought off eBay (seller will not even discuss it) and am trying Windex there too. Seems to not damage the patent at all. A little different situation, but hope it helps :)
