Mulberry Handbag Stain Removal

The Mulberry Bayswater handbag in oak is a new modern classic and deserves to be kept looking its best. Unfortunately, this customers came into The Handbag Spa with a grease based stain on the front. After undertaking a Degreasing treatment, followed by a Full Clean and Colour Restoration treatment, you can hardly tell that a mark was ever there! Our technicians here at The Handbag Spa have plenty of experience with restoring the rich oak colour back to Mulberry bags.


The bottom of leather handbags can pick up all kinds of stains and marks over time and with use, but don’t let this deter you! Our specialist treatments ranging from Full Cleans, Degreasing and Colour Corrections, can rectify problem areas. This oak Mulberry handbag is a great example of the Stain Removal results we can achieve here at The Handbag Spa.

Overall, this blush pink Mulberry Bayswater was in great condition, apart from the oil stain in the corner! To remove a stain like this, the best treatments would be our Degreasing process followed by a HBspa Full Clean and Colour Correction.


This gorgeous Mulberry Bayswater had an unfortunate accident, which created an unsightly grease patch on the front. The Handbag Spa technicians extracted the grease with our Degreasing Process, HBSpa Full Cleaned the Bayswater and Re-Coloured the area where necessary. The results were truly amazing…

We are all guilty of carrying a drink in our handbags, but what to do if it leaks and leaves a stain?! This fushia pink Bayswater had a large water mark on it’s back from a spillage. After it’s HBSpa Clean and Colour Restoration at The Handbag Spa this Bayswater bag has been brought back to life and ready for use!




After attaining unsightly marks this unique Mulberry Alexa came in to The Handbag Spa, in need of some TLC and stain removal. It undertook a HBSpa and Colour Touch Up, leaving no trace of it’s previous stains.


This Mulberry Del Rey was booked into the spa for a Full Clean, Stain Removal & Colour Touch Up. The customer was so happy she tweeted: @TheHandbagSpa picked up my Mulberry bag and purse this morning, you have absolutely rescued them both. Thank you so much, amazing work!!


Purses are exposed to all kinds of potentional staining hazards whilst in our handbags (pens, perfume and drinks to name a few!) We refreshed this customer’s Mulberry purse in oak with a handclean using specialist cleaners for unfinished leather.


Mulberry Handbag Cleaning

The day to day dirt build up on fabric bags can soon become unsightly. A deep cleansing treatment called HBSpa Clean, (which is unique to The Handbag Spa and works on both leather and fabric), was perfect for this Mulberry. This specialist clean removed all the set in dirt, whilst keeping the bag hydrated and ensuring the whole bag staying beautifully soft. Not only did it clean the exterior, but this treatment cleaned up the interior too!


Mulberry Handbag Patent Clean

This patent leather Mulberry Bayswater was looking dull and the shine had gone. This Patent Clean restored the shine of the leather making the bag look as shiny as it did when it was new.


Mulberry Handbag Lining Clean

This Mulberry handbags lining was looking a bit grubby before it’s trip to The Handbag Spa. The zip had left dark marks on the interior and overall it had gone dark with dirt and use. It had a HBSpa treatment, so the interior and exterior were fully cleaned using this unique cleaning system. Now the lining of this Mulberry bag looks so much lighter and the zip marks have reduced considerably.


The inside of this Mulberry handbag had definitely seen better days. The lining on this everyday bag had seen make up spills, liquid staining, dirt build up and more. An Interior Clean was carried out lifting all the dirt particles and removing the staining in the lining. Now it is looking fresh and ready for a few more years use!


Mulberry Handbag Mould Removal

This Mulberry Bayswater had been stored in damp conditions and mould had infested it’s interior… not what any handbag lover wants to see! Here at The Handbag Spa, we have professional mould cleaning processes, which eliminate mould and ensure that it doesn’t come back! The suede interior in this case cleaned up beautifully and the nasty mould odour was removed too.


Mulberry Handbag Dye Transfer Removal

Does this look familiar? Dye transfer can be an unsightly addition to your much loved handbag!  Fortunately this common problem can be treated here at The Handbag Spa.

This Mulberry Taylor really needed some TLC from dye transfer and general wear. After undergoing our exclusive Mulberry Handbag Cleaning treatment and Colour Restoration process it looks rejuvenated, refreshed and ready for the weekend!



This Mulberry SBS cleaned up with an exclusive HBSpa treatment and dye transfer removal treatment, so no colour work was required!









Many of the Mulberry’s that come through our doors have been been well used and well loved, this Mulberry Daria stachel is a good example of severe suede dye transfer. When satchels are carried using the long across the body strap they are in real danger of picking up dye transfer from jeans and trousers.

Thanks to the HBSpa treatment combined with Dye Transfer Removal, the marks were minimised. You can prevent dye transfer with the regular use of a protector, such as Dermo Protect.

PLEASE NOTE: Suede cleaning may lighten the dyes and we cannot guarantee full removal of stains.


Mulberry Handbag Colour Touch Up

Ostrich leather has a really unique texture and look to it, so any restoration work should be carried out by a specialist technician, with expertise in exotic leathers. The staff at The Handbag Spa have plenty of experience in this field and in the case of this Mulberry purse, were able to rectify the noticeable colour loss with a Colour Touch Up treatment. Our technicians are trained to colour mix by eye to ensure the best coverage possible is achieved.


We can all relate to that annoying wear and tear that shows on the corners of our bags. Luckily we have the remedy here at The Handbag Spa with our Colour Touch Up treatment. We match every colour by eye, on the day for each individual handbag. Nothing is pre-mixed, so you can rest assured we will get the exact colour for your bag.

Mulberry Handbag Colour Restoration

This Mulberry Phoebe lost it’s lustre due to the dyes fading from UV damage. After a HBSpa clean and Colour Restoration it’s been saved for many more years of use to come!

This bag had seen a lot of wear over the years and needed a lot of attention to get it back to looking it’s best. The customer chose the package which included a Mulberry Handbag Cleaning treatment, Piping Repairs and Full Colour Restoration. An additional Detox treatment was also carried out as the bag had suffered from pet urine stains and smells.


The base of bag can see some serious wear and tear, which was the case with this Mulberry Bayswater. In order to restore this iconic bag back its original oak shade, it came into The Handbag Spa, where the technical team first fully cleaned it inside and out. The next stage was restore the colour, by using an interior tab, which had been unaffected through the seasons, as a reference point. Now this Bayswater is back to looking its beautiful best. We have plenty of experience with Mulberry handbags and definitely have the expertise to transform yours.


Mulberry Handbag Corner and Piping Repair

Handbag corner’s can see a lot of wear and tear, but not to fear – The Handbag Spa’s team of experts are here! This Mulberry Alexa had exposed piping and worn corners, but after our technicians skillfully repaired the corner and colour restored the area, no-one would now be any the wiser of it’s weary past…


This has to be one of the most common problems we see on Mulberry Bayswaters, a bit of an Achilles Heel of this almost indestructible bag. Our solution to this problem is to replace any damaged piping in that area, and seal up the area using glues, fillers and pigments to rebuild the area so it’s strong and ready to face the elements. This means we don’t have to de-construct the bag keeping it as close to the original as possible which is always our number one concern here at The Handbag Spa.


Don’t wait until the damage gets worse with exposed corners! Send your handbag into the spa (like this customer did with her Mulberry Bayswater tote) for a Corner Repair and we’ll get your handbag looking fresh again. In this case the piping itself hadn’t broken yet, so the technicians worked to restore the area and then undertook a Colour Refresh to get this Mulberry Bayswater Tote back to looking its best.




The piping on this Mulberry Bayswater was actually broken when it arrived at The Handbag Spa HQ. After the Piping Repair and Colour Restoration treatments, this handbag has plenty more years left in it!


Mulberry Handbag Turn Lock Replacement

Here at The Handbag Spa we do not stock original hardware but we can replace parts. The turn lock on a Mulberry is quite a common part to break and we do offer the replacement of that part whilst keeping the original top plate intact. This is a perfect example of that hardware repair.


Mulberry Handbag Colour Change

We do love a challenge here at The Handbag Spa and there is nothing more satisfying than completely transforming a handbag!

This Mulberry handbag is another example of our specialist and bespoke Colour Change treatment. The customer opted to turn her bag into a navy colour, instead of it’s original cream colour (which as we know can be hard work to keep cream!) The work was such a success, that now onlookers wouldn’t have any clue of this Mulberry bags original colour.


Changing a brightly coloured bag via a Full Colour Change to black is a great way to ensure your designer handbag remains timeless and ready for many more seasons to come! This Mulberry Alexa handbag had seen better days and was looking worn, with visible color loss on all four corners. Thanks to a Colour Change from mandarin orange to black at The Handbag Spa, this Mulberry bag left looking refreshed and revived.


Sometimes staining can be so severe that a Colour Change is the best option for even coverage. This was definitely the case with this Mulberry leather purse, which had underlying grease present and many marks. After a review it was decided that dying it to a darker shade or brown would see the best results. It’s amazing to see what a difference the colour change had on the completed Mulberry purse! Here at The Handbag Spa, we use professional products which will not rub off or run over time.

The trim of this scotch grain Mulberry handbag is another example of stubborn staining, which would not lift during the cleaning process. So after consulting the customer, the technicians colour changed the trim from it’s lighter shade to a darker chocolate brown colour, giving this Mulberry handbag a new look.


Mulberry Handbag Ink Removal

Ink marks are very common and can really ruin the appearance of your favourite arm candy! Luckily, this Mulberry owner knew better than to undertake a home remedy and sent her handbag in to the spa for expert attention and restoration. After a Mulberry Handbag Cleaning and Ink Removal Treatment followed by a Colour Touch Up to blend in any colour loss, this Mulberry Mitzy was back to looking its best.


This Mulberry Daria Hobo handbag has been well used and well loved. The owner decided to send it into The Handbag Spa for some needed TLC and to get rid of the ink stains, which were blighting the exterior. After undergoing a Mulberry Handbag Cleaning treatment, Ink Removal and Full Colour Restoration process, this Mulberry looked ready for many more years of use!


The inside of a woman’s handbag can see a lot of use and subsequently the interior can get a little worse for wear! This Mulberry Bayswater had ink marks and staining blighting its raw suede lining. After an Interior Suede Clean and Ink Removal treatment carried out The Handbag Spa the marks had pretty much vanished.

PLEASE NOTE: We cannot guarantee full removal of ink from fabric, suede or nubuck, but we aim to reduce staining as much as possible.



This customer sent in her Mulberry purse after a pen leaked and left a stain. Luckily after calling The Handbag Spa, we were able to remove the ink and Colour Touch Up the area – leaving no trace that the stain was ever there! A lucky escape for a beautiful purse…

The first rule with dealing with a handbag or purse emergency is DON’T PANIC!

If you get an ink stain on your precious bag or purse do not attempt to remove it with house hold remedies, cleaners etc you will probably make the situation worse. With aniline style leathers rubbing an ink stain can only send it deeper in to the leather making it even harder to remove. There is also the chance that you will flatten the grain pattern on the leather which can be extremely difficult to reverse!
