Title says it all, I have searched online and found many opposing way to clean leather purses. I have called the stores and they can’t advise me as they can’t be liable for damage (Kate spade only rec their cleaner). So here I am!
i have a red leather Kate spade which has pretty normal wear and tear around edges and handle. The handles on my LV are getting the black grim on them. Has anyone cleaned their bGs themselves? Also do you monthly condition or do anything to prevent cracking peeling?

No one cleans their purses 🙁

I use saddle soap on a barley damp soft sponge and wipe it off after. Worked pretty well on a white purse that got stained from my jeans. You could also try looking in the auto section of a store like walmart for a leather car seat cleaner

Allyg: probably no one wants to tell you what to use on your fancy purses and have you flip out if it doesn’t work? I mean, I usually buy purses with an eye towards being clean-friendly, like my synthetic vegan leather or duck cloth bags that just need a warm damp cloth.
my guess is there are other forums out there more specifically devoted to fashion/designer leather that would do for your question.

I agree I was just seeing if there was anyone on here that had first hand experience, thanks!

Allyg: I take mine back to Nordstrom and they send it back to Chloe or Balanciaga.

Allyg: Sorry, i’ve never tried cleaning it either. I go back to LV and have them replace the handles if it looks that bad.

I’d use saddle soap. You can pick it up from feed stores or order it online.
