Got this response from customer service when I was inquiring about the leather hobo. (You may want to verify)


We do not recommend the use of Coach cleaner or moisturizer for this particular collection. For cleaning, we recommend diluting a mild soap with some water. Using clean cloths, gently rub out any surface dirt that is on the handbag with the soap and water mixture. Then, go over the material with a lightly damp cloth to remove any soap residue. Finally, use a dry clean cloth to remove any moisture and let the handbag air dry for 24 hours.

We hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,

Lauren

Here is my concern... what about conditioning these bags? The same kind of care is said about the hailey bags, but I would feel odd not conditioning any of them!

Thanks for the info. I used Apple conditioner and rain/stain spray on my peach Kristin hobo and it looks and feels great.

Good to know. I have the "white" Kristin Tote and I'm very nervous about color transfer. I'm hoping using the Apple will provide some protection for the bag. I would just cry if it was to get dirty/stained. I take really good care of my bags, but even after washing my jeans a million times, I got color transfer on the suede 'c' on my inlaid peyton, but was able to remove it right away. Thank goodness! Don't want this happening to my new white bag, but then again, I don't wear jeans alot in the summer. Sorry, I'm just blabbering!!!
