There is no doubt that no one wants to see these high fashion and fairly expensive products being damage or deterioration. That is why it is important to clean them in the right ways. In this post, we will show you how to clean Louis Vuitton Bag with some useful tips from experts.
How to Clean the Outside of a Louis Vuitton Bag
As you can see, the first thing that impresses buyers is a product’s appearance. That is why first of all, we will talk about how to make LV bags’ outside new again. Since Louis Vuitton Bags are crafted from various materials, you will need to use different methods to clean them.
Clean Monogram Canvas
Since canvas is a PVC coating, not leather, you can use baby wipes, cleaners such as micellar water, or slightly soap water to give the pieces a good cleaning. Remember to take a fragrance-free and alcohol-free brand to avoid color transfer.
Clean Louis Vuitton Vernis Leather
Vernis Leather features a shiny surface. For this reason, you should only use water and a non-abrasive damp rag when cleaning it. A plus tip for you: If there is an oily stain on your LV items, put a little cornstarch and rub the affected areas softly. Then, vacuum that area. Cornstarch is really useful in absorb grease and reduce stains.
Clean Vachetta Leather Handles and Trim
Vachetta is natural cowhide leather that is often used to make handles and trims. We do not recommend you clean it with any chemicals. Just give the leather once-over with a baby wipe to preserve its original patina. It will be better if you add a leather waterproofing agent after cleaning to help protect it from rain or snow.
Polish Tarnished Brass and Brass-Tone Hardware
Continue with the bag’s hardware. With these parts, you can use baby wipes first. Then, try a specific cleaner like a dry Magic Eraser to gently buff out the discoloration. Should you want to do a full restoration with a metal polish, you must be really careful when polishing hardware because it can damage the Vachetta leather.
