All are water repellent, resistant to most scratches and may repel surface dirt. If any clear plastic merchandise gets something sticky or greasy on it, cleaning should be done with a soft cotton cloth slightly dampened with distilled water (sodium-free seltzer water may be substituted) and a mild bar soap, applied in a circular motion. Repeat with distilled water only to ensure no residual soap remains. Some scuff-marks may be removed with the use of a soft white eraser used in a gentle circular motion, with only the slightest amount of pressure, so as not to dull the clear finish. No creams, polishes or leather conditioning products should be used on the Vacchetta Leather trim and handles. Please note that it is a natural characteristic of Vacchetta Leather to darken over time with use and exposure to light. NOTE: These instructions cover all clear plastic Dooney & Bourke products. Please keep in mind that variations in trim should not necessarily be treated in this manner; but should be treated using the instructions specific to the particular leather or fabric used.
