Just thought i'd share this story with you guys... When we go out together, my boyfriend has a habit of stashing his own stuff in my purse instead of holding them himself (phone, keys, wallet, etc.) .... does anyone else's SO's do this by the way??? Well last week we were at a baseball game. We were walking to our seats when I hear this sloshing sound. Then suddenly something WET drips onto my leg and I realize it's leaking from the side seams on my mono 30 papillon! I look over at my bf in shock and all he can say is a really quiet "uh oh". Apparently while I was in the bathroom he had decided to put one of those mini bottles of coca cola in there which ended up exploding. EEEK!!! I guess all those beers we had at the stadium caused him to have a temporary lapse in judgment, because I don't know WHAT he was thinking putting a bottle of coke in my purse!!! ush: So I seriously stop in the middle of the walkway, proceed to dump everything out on the ground, and it is awful. Everything in there (my damier koala wallet, his damier wallet, both our phones, lipgloss, tampons, our game tickets) was literally swimming in soda. I thought I was going to kill him right then and there, the only thing I could do to salvage the purse was to soak up all the soda inside and then use sopping wet paper towels from the bathroom all over the purse, including on the light vachetta, to try to clean it up. I threw a big fit and made us go home right away, and of course the bf was pissed off at me for caring more about my "stupid ugly purse" than us staying and having a good time. There is a semi happy ending to the story: I used tons of babywipes all over the entire purse, had to repeat this about 3 times before the stickiness went away. This is my testament to the amazing durability of vuitton canvas. Despite being soaked through to the seams in coke, (which has been proven to dissolve teeth!!) it came out remarkably well. Thank god for the waterproof leather lining inside the papillon! And the paper towels with water on the vachetta left no stains since I soaked it uniformly, even leaving behind a nice patina The worst out of the ordeal was both our cell phones that ended up dying. My damier koala wallet was easy to wipe clean as well. Moral of the story: Be nice to your louis, and make sure your SO treats your purse with the upmost respect as well!
