PLEASE do not use baby wipes on your bags. Please. This has been discussed extensively. They can damage your bag.

Of course it is up to you, but PSA.
I got a stain on my bag last week. My instinct was to use a baby wipe. When it didn’t get the stain out I brought it directly to my local boutique. You should have seen the look on the SM’s face when I said I used a baby wipe…. Needless to say, I’m hoping my “efforts” didn’t make it worse!

My bag was sent to the spa in NY so we shall see………:whut:

I am happy to report back that they were able to completely rid my bag of the stain from hand sanitizer ! I cannot tell where it was before !
It was ready to be picked up 11/5 and I shipped it to my store on 10/2 so Impressive turn around . Of course Now I am SO scared of hand sanitizer !!

Glad it worked out! (I was traumatized, lol, by a pochette Métis photo on this forum with the exact stain at the start of the pandemic, I've been uber careful with sanitizers since then)

Just noticed today I have this mark on this baby !! I’m assuming it’s either some water mark or hand sanitizer ..could be a number of things .. I tried to rub it off w microfiber wash cloth that was damp but nothing changed
Any recommendations would be appreciated
Is this something that needs to go to spa ? View attachment 5211253
I have the exact same type of stain on my black Kelly sellier. I am dropping her and one of my Birkins of at the spa on Rodeo Drive this week. It is a hand sanitizer mishap. In the meantime, my SA invited me to a Spring/Summer preview this Sunday while I drop off my bags. OH NO! I am so so weak. I keep reminding myself that next year’s stock market will not be as bullish and it is time to watch my spending.

Good luck @haute okole on the bags as well as previews ... I went to my store this past wkd to have my moms coat altered..I said to myself I am going to stick to the game plan . But my SA had several RTW pieces put aside for me to try on ... needless to say I had several purchases that day ..

@Chrismin, I feel your pain! I so love love my special invitations to Hermes, but WOW, I don’t think I will ever feel truly comfortable with the amount I spend. I am the type the buys each and everything that looks good on me, but I am a stay at home Mom. Where on earth will I wear all of this Hermes RTW. I live in Hermosa Beach, the land of Lululemon. Re: the hand sanitizers, they are poison to our Hermes.

The sad thing is I keep mine in my makeup bag inside but I have a pump in my car and I think I prob used it and moved my hand and dripped on the outside. I don’t even recall exact moment .. it’s like one day I saw my bag and was horrified
But apparently w pandemic they are seeing a lot of sanitizer related injuries

I know ! The items add up so quickly ! I was really proud of myself that I didn’t buy all the items of RTW, although I will say I kept thinking about one top and am still proud of myself that I didn’t text my SA the next day to see if it was still available ..
