The handbag

This Louis Vuitton Neverfull handbag is as practical as it is chic. With a price tag not for the faint-hearted, the bag was no doubt carefully looked after. And yet, using the bag on a daily basis would have entailed risks — in this case, the customer's bag came to be marked by numerous ink stains and even soaked in spilled apple juice.

When this customer reached out to us for a free diagnosis/quote, we offered to perform a deep clean of the bag's interior as well as treat the bag for its noticeable apple juice odour.

Interior clean and stain removal

We used chemical-free, water-based agents to clean the delicate interior of this bag — these agents penetrate deep into the fibres to loosen up grime and extract ink and other stains. Ink stains in particular are typically difficult to remove, but we are often able to at least significantly reduce their visibility if not remove them entirely through specialised ink stain removal techniques. It is important not to attempt ink and other stain removals at home as the application of harmful substances and excessive abrasion can result in discolouration and irreversible damage — whether to leather or fabric.

Odour treatment

We applied a special agent to disinfect the bag's interior, remove the odour and help protect it from bacteria / mould growth going forward. This type of treatment works generally for liquid and food spillage, cigarette smoke, perfume leakage, and musty / mould odours.
