Cute bag! I never saw that one before. I've also been thinking of a new white bag, I'm debating between chloe off white hobo, or the LV lodge pm in white. But this coach bag is really peaking my interest! Thanks for the photo!

I don't have that bag, but in my experience white leather can get dirty easily. Can that bag be re-dipped?

Cute bag. White is good if you don't use it everyday! I would spray some protectant on it before using and be careful about where you lay it and it should be okay.

Does white leather turn yellow with time and wear?? If it does are there ways of preventing it?

I don't know about white leather.... I know that some manufacturers (i.e. Chanel) warn customers that white PATENT leather can turn yellow.

Yuck!...That's true, I've seen that happen. I don't think white leather turns yellow though.

It does........................

Every year my company have to sent back white purse to the warehouse. Even white fabric as well. We think it is because of the glue that they use to make the purse. So far nothing can be clean
even we tried to use stain remover or goo-gone.

If you use leather conditioner your bag will be uneven color.

Real white leather can discolor but it depends on how you take care of it I think. I'm not sure. Patent leather definitely will turn yellow eventually I think.

I'm sure this has come up before, but I can't find it...

I'm about to take my new ivory Kooba Sienna out of its dustbag this weekend, and I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to keep it pretty and white - at least until my trip in a couple of weeks. Obviously I'll try not to drag it in the dirt, set it on the floor, etc. Can I safely Scotchgard the gorgeous Kooba leather? Coach leather protector? Any other tricks?

Thanks in advance!

Hippie:

I sprayed my new white bag with Apple Garde after seeing so many posts on TPF. I feel better about carrying it but I haven't carried it enough yet to know whether it will stay clean. I've also read that some on TPF like Shining Monkey. I chose the Apple Garde because I can buy it locally rather than having to order online.

Thanks! Do you know where I could get Apple Garde at a retail shop? The website wasn't very informative about that.

Shining Monkey...the car wax? Interesting!

I don't think that the Shining Monkey product everyone uses is the car wax, but rather a product by that company that is used to protect leather and fabric car interiors.

For Apple products, go to their web site and look for the "Where to Purchase" button:

Burlington Coat Factory carries Apple Garde products.

I have posted the question in the YSL section as well, but I hope to get responses from anyone with tips on cleaning white leather. I have dirtied the YSL white Muse, and I have tried Coach cleaner to no avail. What do you all do? Secrets? Or am I stuck? The marks are reddish brown in nature.


Thanks in advance.
