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. ;-)

I had makeup in my Coach purse and I took it to my local dry cleaners. It came out just fine. Good luck.

Most of the information presented about how to clean a Coach bag/purse will have to do with the type that has a fabric liner.
First - Coach stores offer a free purse cleaning (available to use every 3 months); you have to call the store and make an appointment for this service. Not all department stores that sell Coach offer this service but I do know that Neiman Marcus did at one time. Anyway, worth a try.


DIY - Usually a good beginning is just plain water with a little blue Dawn does a good first try. Wet small areas with a damp cloth and then a spot of Dawn. Let it sit for maybe 5 minutes or less and then wipe it clean and then rewipe with a clean damp cloth.

There is a cleaner that some recommend (I've never used it); product called: Tuff Stuff - can be found at Walmart or Target or online. This was used with a small brush & a wet washcloth.

Here is one YouTube video on this subject (there are more sites).

Here is a link to Coach website that has a lot of information about their products:
