My most used and abused LV item was starting to look worn out and kinda crusty, it's once shockingly-green lining, black, dirty, encrusted in lint and other unmentionables :shame: So after remembering that my Alcantara sofa's care instrucions reccomended soap and a damp cloth to clean general dirt, I (literally, a minute ago, with about 2 seconds hesitation) threw any caution to the wind, filled my bathroom sink with warm, very soapy water, THREW it into the water and began scrubbing at the insides with warm soapy water with a spare toothbrush. It's looking immediately cleaner and vividly green once again , as it hangs from an open window being air-dried (after stuffing it with absorbent paper and sitting on it to get any excess water out it ). But, time will tell if it's had any bad effects on it ... I'll report back in a few hours once it's fully dried... In the meantime, place your bets - is it: A) Ruined or B) Good as new!
