I had makeup in my coach purse and I took it to my local dry cleaners. It came out just fine. Good luck.
You may not be able to get all the stains out but a small amount of simple soap and water on a damp rag will help alot without causing possible damage. My way of thinking is that as long as it's clean is a Blessing and especially that the stains are on the inside, that no one will really see except for you, rather than the outside. ;-)
My suggestion is to use a spray cleaner like resolve on the inside, and dab it with a clean white cloth until the stains are lighter. I know this is not a thrifty suggestion, but since it must be an expensive purse. I don't want to suggest anything which might ruin it. Good luck!

Makeup Stains Inside a Coach Purse
How do I clean the makeup off the inside of my coach purse?

RE: Makeup Stains Inside a Coach Purse
If it were me, I'd take everything out of your purse then turn the lining inside out and using an old toothbrush I'd apply baby-bath or baby shampoo (because it rinses out super-easy) or any shampoo or your favorite stain remover (like Goop hand cleaner is good to remove make-up, oil, and grease stains). Just put some on of the cleaner on to the toothbrush then scrub only the stain, then rinse with as little water as possible by using a a clean, damp wash cloth.
A second idea, take your purse into a dry-cleaner and ask them what to do. (12/29/2008)
