I bought a Poppy wristlet in he sparkle leather (with pink leather trim) off *bay and it came FILTHY. I only paid $28 for it but I'd like to try cleaning it.

I tried using a baby wipe (the cure for everything in my house) and it just made it look dirtier!

Any advice would be great...thanks

I don't think you can use anything on them to clean. The leather is similar to nubuck and suede.

I agree, I think it's considered "dusted suede" for the sparkle leather.
It's actually not suede. Suede is the backside of the hide. Sparkle leather is the front side of the hide roughed up with sandpaper then covered with foil to give the sparkle. It's delicate like suede though.

I used a magic eraser on my Julia scarf print wallet a while back and it didn't bother the silver stripe on it, but I'm not positive it's exactly the same type of leather as your wristlet.
