I find that baby wipes (fragrance free) are really good at removing all sorts of marks and stains.

Would help if you told us what the handbag was made of. Plastic? Leather? Satin? Also what the mark are. Fingerprints? Ink? Curry sauce?

Am sorry.............am just having a knee jerk sneer at the thought of a white plastic handbag......ok I'll admit it....I'm a handbag snob!

"magic erasers" aka microfibre sponge will get most marks off most smooth surfaces and you don't need anything but water. Just google 'magic eraser' to find them.

I too am a great fan of baby wipes for leather..especially ones with aloe vera or lotion in them.
Magic erasers are good but can 'dull' the surface.
HildaW...I too am a handbag 'snob'...only wear uggs or fitflops on my feet ...but love my leather handbags.

I have a new Mulberry handbag that is unlined, am I going to have problems keeping the inside clean ?
