Hi, I recently purchased a pre-loved Speedy and would like to clean the handles and the monogrammed canvas. The handles have developed a honey patina which is beautiful, but I noticed some dirt on them and would like to clean them. Also the canvas, the canvas looks good, but could use an overall cleaning. What products should I use? I have heard that Lovin My Bag products are wonderful and Apple Garde. Anyone have a preference to either of these products? Can the monogrammed canvas be cleaned with either of these products.

Hope to hear from someone soon with any recommendations

Hi, the mono canvas would only need to be cleaned with water and perhaps a little mild soap. Be careful not to get water on the leather though.

The leather with patina will still be about the same after cleaning with LMB etc. The patina is part of the charm of older LV:s.

Also see the sticky threads here in the FAQ section.

Good luck.
