I just decided to change my wallet for the holidays and took out my LV red vernis from the drawer where it's been sitting for over a year...and it has 3 pen marks on the back!!! I feel like crying. Does anybody have any idea as to how to clean vernis please? Please help, I am soooo upset...Thank you.

Poor you! what sort of marks?
if they are like pen marks and only on the surface, u can use non-acetone nail polish remover on q-tips and gently dab them away.

They are like a few cm.s long marks. I will try the non-acetone npr, thank you very much, I really hope it works. Would it damage the colour?

I think some of the ladies here use the mr clean magic eraser!
yeah, i owuld try that first before putting anything on it.

and if you try the nailpolish remover, try it out first on a spot you don't recognize so much, cause IF it should harm the vernis, i'd rather have it in a hard-to-see coner instead of right in the middle...


good luck!!!

Well, one out of the three happened when I was using it last year (I haven't left any pens without caps in my bag, I still maintain it may have been a jealousy scratch!), the other two, I have no idea!!! It is like a mystery and a very depressing one at that.

I live in the UK, I don't think we have this Mr Clean product here. Darn...

I would not use Magic Eraser on Vernis or any patent leather for that matter, ME will remove the top shiny coating on the vernis leaving a dull spot and ruining your piece. Try 90% alcohol.

You realize you replied to a thread that's 8 years old, right? :huh:
