This looks like the same thing that happened to my reverse PM! I took it to the LV store and they were able to put some "cream" on the canvas. I can barely see the damage now.

And yes, the SA told me we need to be extra careful with hand sanitizer around our bags. EDIT: Sorry for the double post!

Yikes. That hurts. Sanitizers have alcohol in them so they do damage some surfaces. Like the other poster said, take it to LV when you get the chance. Maybe they'll have a special polish to fix it.

Good luck.

Get some Apple love conditioner for leather. Use with clean cloth to apply on. which could probably revise it

Oh no. So sorry this happened. I hope there is something that will make it a little better. Yesterday I realized a vial of matiere noire broke inside my bag and my round coin purse discolored a little on one side but it looks nothing like this.

I’m so sorry. I’ve seen multiple posts on Facebook where this happened. It has scared me enough that I’ve put my LV up until I’m no longer using so much sanitizer. My YSL has accidentally gotten some on it multiple times and still looks the same...:smile:

Before going into a LV Boutique, they squirt hand sanitizer into your hands!!!
I got such a large squirt in my hand, I was afraid it would leak onto my handbag!

My store had it out and asked us to use it on our own. I'd be upset if they did what yours did. However, this is also why I am not carrying LV bags and only using slgs right now.

They have been putting up disclaimers online that sanitizer can cause damage to canvas.
