Over time, handbags get stains on their insides and outsides from makeup, ink and other materials. Expensive bags, such as the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag, cannot be cleaned in the washer or have harsh chemicals or cleaning products used on them without damaging the bag. The best way to clean the inside and outside of an expensive handbag is to use a combination of gentle cleaning wipes and natural stain-removing products that will eliminate the stain without damaging the fabric of the bag.
Things You'll Need
- Baby wipes
Create a paste from milk and cornstarch. Place the paste over the ink stain on the bag. Allow the paste to sit on the ink stain overnight. The paste should draw out the ink stain from the inside or outside of the bag. If the ink stain is not removed, repeat the paste-application process.
Spray the surface of the bag with hairspray. Allow the spray to sit on the stain for a few seconds, then rub the area clean with a dry paper towel. Do not let the hairspray dry on the bag or else the spray will not remove the stain.
Wipe out the inside and outside of the bag with baby wipes. The wipes will remove any makeup residue from the bag. Wipe the bag with a clean, damp paper towel to remove any residue that the baby wipes leave.
