    I think I have posted this here before, it is on my blog:
    CLEANING AND CARING FOR SUEDE HANDBAGS
    So, how do you to protect, clean, and remove stains from suede Celine bags?
    • Apply a protectant
    • Brush regularly with a firm, stiff brush
    • Clean with an unscented baby wipe
    • Use a dry eraser to remove stains
    • Keep it dry and stuff with tissue when not using
    eHow in the UK used has a video that shows you how to remove stains step-by-step

    Here is a link http://www.ehow.co.uk/video_5996057_clean-suede-handbag.html

    They also have an article on cleaning colored suede http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_6926770_clean-colored-suede.html

    Their resource was Mrs Clean, and this is a REALLY good article on removing stains http://www.housecleaningcentral.com/en/cleaning-tips/clothing/cleaning-suede.html

  7. My 4 year old Celine bag has broken hardware.

    Does Celine do repairs, and who would I contact?

    Thank you so much.
     
  8. Thanks for the tip! Do we need to use both apple and collonil? I just got a dune micro in pebbled leather and I'm so scared that it will rub on my jeans and get discolored!
     
  9. I'm using both leather care and the collonil...cos I'm from very humid, rainy, & hot country... my bags need more protection...

  10. Does anyone know how to keep the shape of the luggage bags? My shoulder luggage has shown a teeny bit of sagging after a couple months and it's really upsetting :sad:
     
  11. Do you stuff it when not in use? I think that helps a lot.
     
  12. Yes, stuffing it with tissue helps, and I think some gals use certain purse organizers or base shapers??? I wish I could remember the thread where I read about them, but maybe if you search you can find it.
     
  13. Thanks for the tip!
     
  14. Thank you!! I'm buying them now on Amazon!
