Removing red dye transfer from your handbags and purses

One of the most common stains we see on the exterior of handbags and purses is blue or black dye transfer from a newly-purchased pair of jeans.

Occasionally, we see red. Take this Gucci GG fabric handbag with brown leather trim we received a few months ago.

In addition to the red dye transfer, the handbag exhibited the normal soiling (on the exterior fabric and interior linings) one would expect from any canvas handbag as well as ink stains on both interior linings.

The following before and after photos reflect the transformation from stained and soiled to spotless:

By the way, if you're looking for a handbag cleaning specialist, please remember this: All handbags, purses, wallets and backpacks should BE CLEANED by hand, never BY MACHINE. And, then, only by a cleaner who specializes in these accessories. And, the only way to ensure that the cleaner does, in fact, specialize in these accessories is to make sure that the cleaner has a FULL TIME handbag and purse cleaner ON PREMISES.

RAVE FabriCARE is the only cleaner in Arizona, and one of the very few in the USA, that employs a full time handbag cleaner whose sole job is to hand clean handbags, purses, wallets and backpacks. Unlike other cleaners, we'd never clean by machine and we'd never send your accessories to outside third parties for cleaning. That way we're able to deliver the very best technologically achievable results and return your items, in most cases, in a week and a half to two weeks.

RAVE FabriCARE serves clients throughout the USA, Canada and Mexico through our  Nationwide Clean By Mail service. We are, literally, as close as your front door.

    Thanks for the reminder. I used to clean my stained handbags with a washing machine.
