To clean a fabric or nylon Kate Spade purse, wipe the purse with a damp cloth, using a water and gentle soap mix. To clean a leather purse, use a damp cloth and leather cleaner. Evening bags and straw purses are not suitable for home cleaning.

It is easy to clean many different kinds of Kate Spade purses at home, using the following steps:

  1. Clean the inside of the purse
  2. Empty the purse and take everything out of the pockets. Shake it upside down to get rid of large particles. Pull the lining inside out and use a lint roller to remove dust and dirt. Alternately, use the upholstery attachment on a vacuum cleaner to vacuum up dirt.

  3. Clean the outside of the purse
  4. For fabric and nylon purses, use a damp cloth and some gentle soap to carefully wash out stains and marks. It is a good idea to do a spot test first, as water can stain some fabrics. Wipe the purse dry after it is clean. For leather purses, wipe away stains and marks using a damp cloth and leather cleaner. Alcohol-free baby wipes can also clean leather.

Do not attempt to clean large, or deeply set stains at home. Also, as straw material is very delicate, they should not be cleaned at home either. Instead, take delicate or badly stained purses to a professional cleaner to avoid the risk of damaging the purse.
