Nowhere out of ordinary.
Is there any product to use to clean or get the stains out of Chanel handbags??? I'm extra careful with mine, and if there is a product I'd love to have a bottle. I keep worrying I'll stain one of mine, and I need a product to clean it or get the stains out of my handbag to ease my conscience, that if something does happen, or it does get a stain, I can get it out. Please, can someone help, or reccommend a product that works???

I know shoe repair shops sell patent leather cleaner but I don't have a patent Chanel so I can't tell you if it works on Chanel's patent.
I do know (from experience) that patent leather is difficult. Ink stains and then starts to "creep" or spread. I have one LV patent bag that faded from a neutral light blue, to an aqua!:cursing: I never took it to the beach or sat in the sun with it. At least it faded evenly, so it's still wearable, but annoying as aqua doesn't really go with a lot of things.
Lots of people have just sent their bags back to Chanel for a "professional" cleaning.

I'd take it to Chanel for cleaning - for standard leather products I use the Lexol leather conditioner to keep it from getting stained - but if my bag got a stained I'd send it to the designer to fix as they know it best!

I'd definitely recommend that too. But my SA just told me a trick with White Caviar Handbags. If it looks dirty, you might want to rub the dirty part with a rubber. That's what she told me. :biggrin::yes::tup:

I have a Chanel evening bag. I'm not sure what would get a stain or mark out of that. Has anyone heard of Margaret's Purse Cleaning??? I was thinking of sending my Chanel's there, by mail, to get them cleaned every three months or so.
