You can clean Lucky Brand leather purses easily.

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

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.
