I tried to search but can't seem to find recent recommendations for bag cleaning services in Singapore. Am hoping to clean/disinfect a pre-loved chanel lambskin bag which is on the way to me now! Would appreciate if you can share some experiences - shops to avoid etc? Thank you!

I was googling and narrowed down to Cleanique and Trista Handbag Cleaners. Anyone has any experience with these?

Thanks for replying! Have you tried both of these companies? Do share more if you can!
Dr Bags is quite popular.... I go to their Plaza Sing outlet. Friendly service and the staff or manager there is knowledgeable. Have sent 2-3 bags there for cleaning, colour touch up and HP coating. So far, so good. Only thing is if you do HP coating (water proof)... the bag becomes more matte in colour. Take note that I havent brought very dirty bags there - just vintage or preloved bags I bought and wanted a proper cleaning.

Honest crafters I went to Plaza Sing too but I think they moved to City Hall. Sent for cleaning and mend of stitching on 2 bags - came back well done but I had to wait a month or more.

I find both shops trustworthy... but do note that bag cleaning services in general not so cheap.....

Thank you! Did you have to wait long for Dr Bags services? I've asked around and it seems that most places seem to take quite a while - shortest is 3 weeks and longest is up to 90 days! I think it would cause me anxiety to have to wait so long :lol:

I sent my chanel flap for cleaning and to remove tarnish on chain. Ard 150 bucks but had to wait a while cos of backlog from circuit breaker measures.. probably drop them a watsapp msg to enquire abt the waiting time?

Thank you for sharing! Have decided not to send my bags in for professional cleaning at the moment but will consider for future! :flowers:
