I just got a jumbo patent classic in blush. I would appreciate any thoughts about protecting the bag both before and after I use it. I also have a white Chanel-I don't know the name but it is white slouchy bag,in white pebbly leather. I couldn't find a picture on the site. Any thoughts? Finally, I went back through the threads to try to find these answers and came across discussions about protecting a caviar bag. According to the discussions, the caviar is pretty indestructable and can be cleaned after use with baby wipes. Any thoughts, particularly about the patent and the white, would be so appreciated. Thanks.
