I've seen quite a few stain threads posted so I thought I might as well tell you my tale... Movie and Date Night with Husband. Hairspray...the Musical. Started out well... I laid my purse on the seat...gave Hubby the popcorn and told him to hold it while I went to the bathroom. I came back and found the popcorn sat on the seat next to my bag (Brand New Andrea Breuckner Luxembourg satchel) AND that 3 pieces had fell out and sat on top of the outer pocket. Three butter soaked peices. I went ballistic. Big oily dark spot right above the pocket. I could have cried. He was so upset apologizing. Saying he never even thought not to put the popcorn next to my bag. He was all beside himself. He said we'd send it to LMB immediately and he would pay whatever it would take. I whimpered and whined that she probably couldn't fix it...so then he said he's buy me a whole new bag even at the 685 retail price. I tell you it ruined the movie for me. BTW...the movie was okay but we both liked the orginal version with Ricki Lake better. I sat there wadding up my knit shirt and trying to blot out the grease the best I could. Hell with the shirt. I did get a fair bit out. When I got home I plastered on the corn starch, rubbed it in and held a lit light bulb up against it to heat it. After about an hour I sucked it all up with my Dustbuster and brushed it with a toothbrush. Surprisingly it did pretty good and got most of it absorbed. I plastered on more and will leave it sit over night to get any more out if it can. So...Hubby is still being very very nice to me...and the bag looks okay. I'm still in horror of it, but I don't think it needs LMB. Overall, I'm glad it wasn't a First Date! LOL It might have been my last...unless he bought me a new bag.
