Anyone have any success doing this before using cornstarch or talc powder? My mom recommended it and I looked online and others recommend.

My brother stuck greasy, chicken finger and mozzarella stick hands into my bag removing items, even when told not to. I now have grease spots inside my Josie. I'm thankful he didn't get lipstick inside of the bag b/c he kept opening my gloss and waiving it about- I know that would have not come out.

I have nothing to lose by trying, wondering if it worked for anyone. TIA.

I've never used cornstarch before, but I've read accounts of it working.

Good luck! And don't kill your brother.

Thanks. Will try tonight. No killing- no worries. He is at an age where he acts like that to be annoying (13).

This is kind of a general question, so I am going to move it to Handbags for you... :yes:

Good luck!
