How do I get smudges out of a patent leather designer bag? Any suggestions? Thanks!
Have you tried Vaseline? I used to clean my patent leather shoes with it. Just rub it on, let it set awhile, then wipe it off. (07/10/2009)
I was always able to get smudges off of patent leather shoes with fingernail polish remover. You might test it on the purse before putting a lot on it, but it worked wonders on getting black smudges off the shoes. (07/13/2009)
I haven't tried this on patent leather, but I wonder if Goo Gone would work. If you try it, try a small section on the bottom of the bag first. Some people say vegetable oil works as well as Goo Gone. Good Luck! (07/13/2009)
Is that food markings or what? Have you tried just a simple pencil eraser and erase them all away? I do that when black shoe marks get put on our kitchen and bathroom flooring. Good luck and keep us posted on what you end up doing. (07/13/2009)
I use what the military wives used, Miracle whip. My grandmother shined my grandfather's dress uniform shoes, and she did mine as a little girl. Be careful of solvents, patent leather is man-made and will turn to jelly with most anything but soap and water. (07/13/2009)
