We provide extraordinary care for fine
garments & household textiles
White handbags, purses, wallets and backpacks are the perfect
The problem with these white leather, suede, canvas, nylon and
combo accessories, of course, is that they magnify any evidence of
soil, dirt and grime.
So what to do?
On the internet everyone's an expert. So it's not surprising to
find a variety of "solutions" to the problem of cleaning white
handbags, purses, wallets and backpacks. Using an array of products
you might find in a kitchen, bathroom or laundry room. Products
such as lukewarm water, mild detergent, glass cleaner, lemon juice,
tartar sauce, vinegar, petroleum jelly, rubbing alcohol, nail
polish remover, saddle soap, and the like.
Certainly, you could decide to experiment with one or a
combination of these products. An alternative is to consider
entrusting your white handbag, purse, wallet or backpack to a handbag
Consider this Jimmy Choo white leather handbag, for example. Our
client, who lives in Florida, was considering donating it to
charity before she decided to call us seeking advice.
Clearly, this handbag was not fit for further use.
It took about 2 weeks to hand clean this handbag inside and out,
but the results were impressive: bright white outer leather and
stain-free lining. And the cost to "save" this handbag? $145 (this
same handbag in black leather would have run about $95).
The before and after photos reflect the transformation:
I understand that you could save some dollars by attempting to
clean a handbag, purse, wallet or backpack yourself. You have a
50:50 chance of getting it right. But you also have a 50:50 chance
of ruining the handbag, purse, wallet or backpack forever.
An alternative to DIY cleaning is to entrust your handbag,
purse, wallet or backpack to a handbag cleaning specialist. This
way you eliminate the risk of experimenting with one or a
combination of kitchen, bathroom or laundry room products.
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 dry 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.
