ok. so i've had this dilemma for a couple of years now and i still have not been able to figure out how to effectively clean my bags! i've taken them to dry cleaners (i don't think they were very effective because they are liable for damage to the purse), and i have even thrown them in the washing machine (and ruined the interior of two of them). however, i have not been able to really clean them - especially the lighter colored bags! i still love my bags, and i would really love it if i would be able to clean them and use them again. so if anyone has ANY tips, i would very much appreciate it! THANK YOU!!!
