How Do You Clean Velour Handbags?

Cleaning a velour handbag takes a variable amount of time, depending on the severity of the stains and the amount of time the handbag takes to dry. In order to clean your velour handbag, all you need is water, soft white cloths, a bucket, a hairdryer and some bleach-free detergent.

  1. Prepare cleaning mixture and cloth

    Pour some cool water and a small amount of bleach-free detergent into the bucket. Allow these liquids to mix briefly before taking one of the soft cloths and dampening it with the cleaning solution.

  2. Blot the stains off the handbag

    Using the wet cloth, gently blot the stains off the handbag. Don't rub directly, and be very gentle while you work. This helps prevent damage to the bag. Use different parts of the cloth over time as you clean.

  3. Dry the bag with a cloth

    Take another clean, dry cloth and begin brushing the edges of the wet stains. Don't start in the center of the stains. Instead, work your way in from the outside. If you want to avoid water stains, try to dry the bag as quickly as possible. You can use a hairdryer with cooler air settings for the last stage of drying.
