Question: Eyeliner on a Coach Purse

By nikku 1

I own a small Coach purse, it's not big enough for a make-up bag, so I thought nothing of it to put my eyeliner (pencil) in there. When I went to look in it, there was eyeliner marks all over one side, so I got a Q tip and put water on it, I then began to notice that it was coming off, so it started to use a towel to get the marks out, it didn't help. Did I ruin this purse? Is there anything that I can do to get it off?

Thank you.

I have been told that Wilson's (the leather store) leather cleaner and moisturizer is a cheaper substitute for the coach purses and other leather ware. It supposed to work just as good as the coach cleaners and moisturizers, but for less money. I have never tried myself so I can't give you an opinion on that. Good luck.

Tip: Removing Ink Stains from Your Coach Purse

By melissa25 2

This is so very simple. I wish I had figured this out a long time ago. I had 100's of ink stains on the inside of my Coach bags. I had never tried to get them out, until the other day. I had an alcohol swab and began to rub and rub. Eventually all, yes all, of the ink marks came out. I couldn't believe it.

You will need a lot of alcohol swabs or just buy a bottle of rubbing alcohol and a thin cloth. You have to work at it for a little bit, but it works. Now I'm ready to sell what was once ready to throw out! I'll definitely get more money. I was excited it worked so well!

Later I'll post on how to clean the outside. There are two ways. Check for that post, coming soon. First I want to see how this works for you. Please post pics and let me know.

    Question: Cleaning a Stain on a Coach Leather Purse

    By Melissa C. 1

    I bought a Coach small hobo purse in light blue and aqua from a friend. The really pretty white leather looks horrible. It's like she had the sunless tanning lotion on and it rubbed off on the white leather. I have no idea on how to get the strap white again. Do you think I could put it in the washer on delicate? Please help.

    No. Don't machine wash leather because it will fall apart. I had a beautiful leather coat and made the mistake of machine washing it. It is totally ruined. Perhaps someone here knows how to clean leather. I don't know how but I do know not to machine wash it.

    Question: Sharpie Stain on White Coach Purse

    By Sarah Marsey 1

    I am at a real loss. Some how I got sharpie on my new White Coach bag. The purse is made from nylon and has a been "pre-treated" so not to get any stains. Every other time I get anything on it, I just wash it and it's gone. Not this time. I didn't put it in the dryer, but a little bleach and a turn in the machine did nothing. Please help!

    Tip: Tips for Cleaning a Coach Purse

    By Ladygreenbyrd 1

    I buy awful looking Coach purses off eBay clean them up and resell them. In my experience this is what I have found that works best. If it's a fabric purse whether it's satin, canvas, or even cotton this product that is sold at the DollarTree is all you need. It's called "Awesome" it's yellow and comes in a spray bottle.

    You can clean anything with this stuff; it's great. The label says dilute, but I use it straight. I spray the whole bag and saturate the dirtiest areas. I then scrub with a toothbrush. After that, I wash it in the machine with towels or some bulky items, then if the stains are still there, repeat. I've only had to do that once because the bag was really dirty. Once washed clean I pack the inside with towels to hold the shape. It looks like new!

    I will also use a tarnished cloth to shine up the hardware. Sometimes the leather lightens on the corners. I lightly go over it with a Sharpie of the same shade. The suede and patent leather purses are a lost cause. Once dirt has dried on suede it is so hard to get out. I have yet to find anything that will take the black marks off the patent leather.

    Coach purses are made very well so don't worry too much about washing it in the machine. It won't hurt it.

      Question: White Pebbled Leather Coming Off Coach Purse

      Here's a challenge question? I have a white pebbled leather Coach purse that the white has rubbed off with the slightest of touch. How can I restore the white color back onto the bag. It's turning a greenish color from the leather under the white color. With it being pebbled leather also this is a tricky one. I'm stumped and upset. The first time I tried cleaning it the corners and very front upper white starting coming off. I only used a wet micro fiber cloth and that's all. I barely even wiped it.

      Hi - I really meant to say that Coach states they do NOT allow their products to be discounted in any store that legally buys from them.

      Some of the eBay sellers do sell legitimate Coach handbags and some do not. Always be very careful when purchasing something like this and as always "if it is too good to be true" it probably isn't.

      It is legal to sell used authentic Coach purses.

      Clean the area that is stained with saddle soap. Apply the saddle soap with a soft cloth and follow label instructions on the saddle soap. If the saddle soap is glycerin based then spray directly onto the leather.

      Then put on a shea butter based conditioner using a soft cloth in circular motions. Do this twice a year if it is exposed to the elements frequently. Once a year otherwise.

      Spray your black leather suitcase with a water repellent product designed only for leather. This will make spills bead up and not soak in the leather.

      If it is a vinyl or leather purse, try some Dow Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner. I have used it on vinyl shoes and handbags, and it works great. If it is a fabric purse, I would take it to a reputable dry cleaner to get it cleaned. Then I would spray it with Scotchguard to protect it. You could probably just use a damp soapy cloth from then on to spot clean it. Hope this helps.

        A good shoe repair shop can work wonders for your bag. After all, they work with leather most of the time and produce excellent repairs. You can describe what you would like (and how much the bag means to you!) and you will get a cost estimate for the work.

          I'm "oh so rough" with my purses. I bought a second hand Coach ban online because I don't want the guilt of trashing an expensive bag but still want to look good. So for the price, I got a nice bag but it was pretty dirty. Yuck! But I can't complain for what I paid.

          Just like the earlier posts, I tossed it in the wash on delicate with two towels. OMG, it looks amazing. Huge improvement. I used a little bit of laundry detergent and hung it to dry. Now, I didn't have much to risk, so it's your call if you have a real pricey one.

            After reading the tip about throwing your Coach bag in the washer I thought I'd give it a try. I had found the purse as I was cleaning up after the last tenant moved out of the rental property I own. The purse looked like new except it was a little dirty. Since it was a found item I figured, why not? I put it in the washing machine on delicate cycle with a couple towels as previously recommended, used cold water and Woolite and hung it up dry. It came out perfect; looks brand new. It is a sateen finish bag with leather handles and trim.

              RE: How to clean a coach leather handbag?

              I had this great leather purse made in ITALY and the leather was a light camel color and ever so creamy soft. One day while dining at a restaurant I, by mistake, picked up a pat of butter under my little medicine container, that I brought with me and placed it in my purse. When I went to use the purse the next time I found (you guessed it) a large greasy stain that had gone right through the lining.

              I called several businesses that deal with leather as well as brought it to 3 different shoe cobblers. No one would touch it. Even after I suggested how it might come out if it were to be dyed a darker color, like navy or black, they all told me the same thing... no guarantee. Is your handbag lightly soiled or badly stained? You could always try good old fashioned saddlesoap which you can purchase in a good shoe store. Good luck. (02/14/2005)

              Mink Oil

              I have used mink oil and also the inexpensive leather shoe cleaner lotion in store. I have 6 coach purses and have used it on all of them. It is much cheaper. (05/29/2006)

              Cleaning Suede and Leather

              To clean suede use a suede cleaning eraser ( it has pumice in it and rubber) the combination removes dirt very effectively.

              To clean leather safely you should use a leather cleaner that is pH 4.5 matched to leather. Most cleaners are detergents and soaps (coach has a list of leathers that you SHOULD NOT use with their cleaner). The safest cleaner on the market is called Lovin my Bags. It is safe for unfinished leathers too. If the cleaner doesn't do it, they have professional services to restore the leather.

              Good luck!(06/15/2006)

              Cleaning Ideas

              i work with handbags and to clean little spots in the Canvas (signature) handbags, a little seltzer water, some gentle soap (like Dove) and a toothbrush usually works. For leather try a baby wipe, the Coach leather moisturizer, or even a product called Goo Gone (look in craft stores or Home Depot), but test the Goo Gone on a "hidden" spot before using all over the bag. When all else fails take it to a VERY trusted dry cleaners. (06/25/2006)

              RE: Cleaning a Coach Purse

              Do not use any kind of soap, pH is 7 at best if it is neutal. Leather is 4.5. The chemistry is important or leather will rot. Ink comes out with a white eraser, if you catch it in time. No vinegar on leather it is too acidic and can pull out the color. The best cleaner is the Lovin my Bags brand. It is safe for ALL leathers and has a pH of 4.5. It is made specifically for delicare designer handbags. I work with leather and this is the only product I would recommend for any designer leather handbag cleaning. (06/28/2006)

              RE: Cleaning a Coach Purse

              I actually have a white Coach purse and it is the cloth material. I use a clean wash cloth with regular ol' dish soap and the hottest water you can stand on your hands. Get the bag soaking wet, then get your cloth wet. Put about a half-dollar size amount of soap onto your cloth, when you rub it on the purse you can scrub it pretty hard. After I get it nice and soapy I rinse it off just a little bit and I've thrown mine right into the washing machine on super gentle and I have had really great results. If you take the purse to the dry cleaners the purse WILL turn yellow. Good luck. (11/14/2006)

              Unscented Baby Wipes! They have worked wonderfully on my two-year old khaki Signature bag. They were recommended by a Coach store manager. Important that you get unscented and non-lotion type wipes. I have had excellent results with Huggies Unscented Natural Care wipes and also Kleenex Moist Wipes in a box. Just lightly scrub into the fabric and you will see the soil coming off into the wipe. Doing this every 3-4 weeks takes off the surface dirt and really brightens up my bag. They also a great for a quick cleaning of leather bags and shoes. (03/25/2007)

              RE: Cleaning a Coach Purse

              For bags of canvas/cloth or cloth sections - I always spray with Scotch Guard or similar anti-stain spray before wearing, carefully avoiding the leather! It repels most stains and makes them much easier to sponge off. I have a lovely La Coste bag I was given that I won't use until I have sprayed it. (04/18/2007)

              • Unfortunately, we do not offer a cleaning or refurbishing service. We do offer a Coach Leather Cleaner and Moisturizer Set for our Classic Collection.

              How can I clean my COACH shoes?

              • To maintain suppleness and a clear complexion of the leather, use a wax based polish, mink oil or bees wax.

              • Calfskin, Waxy Leather, Natural Grain or Spazzalato - Wipe shoes clean with a dry cloth. Apply shoe cream to leather using circular strokes.

              • Nubuc or Suede - Brush gently with a soft suede brush to remove stains or marks. For stubborn stains use a suede eraser first, and then brush gently with a suede brush.

              • High Polish Calf - Wipe shoes clean with a soft, dry cloth or damp cloth if shoes are soiled. Use small amounts of Meltonian Wax, if necessary. Polishing will gradually reveal more of the base color.

              • Burnished pull-up Calf - Wipe shoes clean with a dry cloth or with a slightly damp cloth if shoes are soiled.

              • Quilted Signature - This fabric that has been specially treated to be water and stain repellent. We do not recommend the use of Coach Leather Cleaner or Moisturizer.

              • Metallic Leather - To remove surface dirt, lightly wipe clean with a damp cloth and mild soap. To add luster, lightly apply shoe cream with a soft cloth and gently brush leather surface. Excessive rubbing or polishing will damage metallic surface. Metallic leathers are volatile to scuffs and abrasion during wear.

              • Buffalo and Vachetta - Wipe with clean, dry cloth. Any application of cream or polish will change leather color. These leathers are naturally tanned so the color may darken from daily wear and exposure to the sun.

              • Signature Jacquard Fabric - Brush with a soft bristle brush. Treat with Scotchguard if weather-proofing desired.

              • Hamptons Twill - Brush with a soft bristle brush. Treat with Scotchguard if weather-proofing desired.

              • Patent Leather - Wipe with a clean, dry cloth.

              • Webbing - The Coach webbing fabric has been specially treated to be stain resistant. It can be cleaned with mild soap and water.

              Sunglasses

              • Rinse with warm water to remove dust particles. Use non-moisturized liquid soap to clean sunwear. Dry with a maxi-velvet cleaning cloth.

              The white coach purse with colorful C's

              Listen ignore the vinegar stuff and the buying the special cleaner stuff. The best thing to use is honestly, some Dial Antibacterial Hand soap. Just get a towel and you can put soap on the bag or the spots or even on the towel. It doesn't damage the bag or the color. However do not wipe the leather handles. The white can rub off if you rub too hard, if you want to clean it rub gently and lightly and once you see brown strikes stop right away.

              Make sure the towel is wet and keep wetting the bag with the towel and the soap, it gets the stain out faster. Also rub and scrub it takes some scrubbing and pushing into so just don't be scared to scrub. I got this bag almost a year ago and I got it dirty like crazy. I just cleaned it for the first time in basically a year. I just cleaned it actually two minutes ago and it looks brand new. Trust me on this one. (07/20/2007)

              I was on the verge of tears when I sprayed Scotchguard on my patchwork/leather coach handbag and it left bluish spots on the brown leather. The Coach conditioner didn't work, soap and water didn't work. Finally I tried Shout Ultra Gel stain remover. It works on my clothes so well I thought "why not". I put a small amount of the Shout gel on a wet washcloth and worked it into the leather, miraculously it came out! (09/20/2007)

              I was able to clean blue ink marks on my white leather Coach purse with 70% solution of rubbing alcohol. Put some on a cotton ball and dab the area, don't rub. Let it dry for about 15 minutes and you will see it works! The area will be dull but you can put on the leather moisturizer to bring the shine back. (09/30/2007)

I went to the Coach store and they were no help at all, so I just bought a suede care kit at my local food store that came with a suede eraser bar and a brush. After about 20 minutes of rubbing the stains, they disappeared! I highly recommend using this if you are trying to clean a suede purse. (01/09/2008)

              White Scribble Hampton tote

              I agree with the mild soap and hot water tip. On the official Coach website it even suggests soap/water for a number of different bags that you can't use their cleaner on.

              If you plan on keeping your purse forever, you can also do what I did and tack "feet" to the bottom of your white purse. This will keep the white bottom from touching whatever surface you set it on. I had a friend that also put a piece of matching colored felt, (or any other material) on the bottom of her purse with "Glue Dots" in the corners. No one will ever notice unless you flip your purse over, you won't get the actual purse dirty, and the "Glue Dots" come off without ruining the purse. You can find them at your local craft store.

              I hope this helps to all you Coach lovers out there. (03/28/2008)

              I wouldn't listen to the Coach people. As much as I like them, they're wrong. When you call Coach and ask how to clean the bag, most of them say "sorry, you can't" just because they want you to buy another purse. I just used Dove bar soap and a washcloth. I have the purse made out of fabric with the scribble Cs on it. I took the washcloth and put it under hot water, smeared the soap in it, wrung it out and then scrubbed gently to remove the stains. It worked! NEVER, ever, spray Scotchguard on fabric purses! (08/27/2008)

              I agree with Jackie's posting using the dish soap. I personally used Bath and Body Work's shower gel to promote a better smell, but the dish washing liquid would probably clean it better, especially if there is grease or oil on it. I do have to disagree with the comment that the Coach people won't help you because they just want you to buy a new bag. They are the ones who told me to try soap and water. I wouldn't try that unless it was a last resort, but it was a filthy second hand bag. It worked well. (06/17/2009)

              I just wanted to say thank you for the suggestion of using an unscented baby wipe to remove stain from a fabric Coach purse. It worked like a charm. I'm not sure where or when I got the stain, but it came out with a little scrubbing with the wipe. (10/31/2009)

              Can I wash my fabric coach purse in the washer?
