  1. Non ink stains. Any ideas on cleaning dingy lining?
     
  2. I purchased a bag with Alcantra lining for the purposes of doing it up
    . The inside was filthy and so I used a cleaning/scrubbing brush with soap and water
    Not sure if I'd have done that if I hadnt purchased it to restore
    But it worked perfectly :smile:
     

  3. Thanks. I was thinking the same. How long did it take to dry?
     
  4. I'm not sure as I did it just before I went to work. I left it to dry for a full day in the open air though so as to ensure it didn't get damp at all.

    It was still damp during the second picture and isn't done yet, but a pretty big difference all the same! I was pretty impressed
     
  5. That is impressive!
