Constructed from the highest quality leather and suede, Lucky Brand leather purses feature fashion-forward trends and style inspired by rock music. For leather handbag collectors, maintaining your premium designer handbag is essential to extending its life beyond a few uses. If your Lucky Brand purse is dirty, you can clean and treat the leather at home and inexpensively.

Things You'll Need

Eliminate debris from the handbag’s interior. Pull the lining of the handbag out of the purse. Pick up lint and dirt with a lint roller. Use a vacuum cleaner brush attachment to remove dust or hair lodged in between the seams of the lining.

Clean the exterior of your Lucky Brand purse with soap and water. Mix 1 part mild liquid soap with 5 parts of cold water. Dip a corner of an old towel or t-shirt into the soapy water. Wipe the leather bag to clean. Use a clean white cloth to pat the leather dry.

Add shine to patent leather bags with a vinegar solution. Mix 1/2 cup of cold water with 3 tbsp. of white vinegar. Remove any traces of white vinegar residue with a clean white cloth. Dry purse away from the heat. Ammonia-based window cleaners also polish dingy Lucky purses easily.

Moisturize leather with a cream paste polish. Using an old cloth diaper or cheesecloth, rub a neutral-colored cream polish on the leather. To cover scuff marks, apply a matching colored polish. Avoid using wax polish on your handbag. Wax is too heavy for purses.

Brush suede and canvas bags with a bristled brush. A suede brush loosens trapped dirt from the nap. To remove dirt stains or scuff marks from suede, rub a pencil eraser into the leather. Clean canvas bags by brushing with a hard-bristled brush without water.

Tips

  • For large water spills on suede, take your handbag to a purse specialist for immediate cleaning.

  • As an alternative to water and soap, clean your leather purse with pre-moistened leather cloths.

  • For dirty embroidered Lucky leather bags, take the bag to a professional cleaner for repair.
