There are different methods for cleaning Dooney and Bourke purses. The steps depend on the material the purse is made of, but generally involve mild soap and a damp cloth.
Dooney and Bourke have many styles of purses. Some are made of leather while others are made of fabric or canvas. Follow the care instructions for the particular material.
Leather purses can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Use distilled water and a mild soap. Most Dooney and Bourke leather purses do not require any leather conditioner.
Fabric purses are cleaned in much the same way as leather purses. Use a damp cloth and mild soap. If there is an oily spot, remove the liquid and apply a small amount of talcum powder to absorb the stain.
