How to Remove Ink Stains from Longchamp Bags

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Baglove called me last night to tell me that her HSBC bill, which I'm guessing was laser-printed, stained the lining of her fox orange Planetes. Imagine her bill permanently imprinted on her bag! I was laughing my ass off until I noticed that she was not laughing with me. Me, bad friend! To redeem myself, I shared with her Teacher J's tip. After around 30 minutes, she texted me to say that the tip worked. Me, good friend!

Teacher J shared with me her secret to removing ink stains in Longchamp bags. It's MILK! 

The Steps:
  1. Dip the tip of a wash cloth in milk. Teacher J used evaporated milk but I guess any kind of milk will do.
  2. Gently rub the milk-soaked tip of the wash cloth in the stained area.
  3. After each rub, pat dry the area with another clean dry cloth.
  4. Repeat the steps until the stain is gone.
I must admit that I was very skeptical at first but Teacher J swears by it. She already tried it twice on her pink Le Pliage with much success. I finally decided to blog about the tip after Baglove confirmed that it really works.

Thanks for the tip Mrs. G. My mom who has a Longchamp will be happy to know this. She loves her bag but could not use it for sometime because she did not know how to get the stains out.
