Hi ladies,

I have a few Chanel lambskin bags and I'd like to keep the leather supple. Do you ladies know of any products that work on dark and light leather? The bags are so expensive that I'm scared to try anything without a really good recommendation!

Also, what do you use to clean your caviar leather bags?

Thanks! :smile:

I've use the apple conditioner on just about every bag.
I have also clean my black classic lambskin with the apple condition and it worked great. No fading at all.
As for caviar, because its texture and the leather isn't porous I think a wipe down with a damp cloth is good enough for cleaning.

A lot of LV addicts use the conditoner and spray on the vachetta on their LV's. Make sure you get the conditioner and NOT the cleaner.

The spray is a great water repellent, it protects your purses from watermarks. I also like the vectra spray as well.

You can purchase it online or from your local Burlington Factory store.

I haven't tried it on any light color chanel lambskin BUT I have used it on my white bulga and no problems at all.

As for the Vectra spray I do know a few people that have spray down their white reissue with no color change.
Althought the reissue is calf...I don't think there will be a prob. with lambskin either.

Of coz company will suggest you to Professional clean only.
But Coach leather cream cleaner in clear color work really well.

After doing alot of research I think my bag is about 16 years old and I believe it is made in calfskin not lambskin. There are so many different types of leather and styles that its hard to figure out exactly what is what.
