You probably use your purse every day, and it goes pretty much everywhere with you: the car, the office, the bank, restaurants, public restrooms, etc. Your purse really gets around! One of these days it’s bound to wind up with a tough stain, and most purses simply cannot be machine washed. So when you drip sauce onto your favorite bag, you’re going to need a stain removal guide. Ladies, when you need to remove stains from purses, just follow these tips.
1. Patent Leather
If your favorite bag is made from patent leather, try this. Dab a little white vinegar onto some cheesecloth, and then use that to gently rub the stain. This actually works remarkably well most of the time. If some of the stain remains, grab your nail polish remover (the kind with acetone — yes really!). Dab in a cotton swab and then carefully run that over the stain.
If you’ve got a scuff mark, try an eraser or “magic eraser” to rub out the stain, then spray a paper towel with glass cleaner to finish it off.
