Saddle soap can be used to clean a purse made of white leather. Liquid shoe polish is also ideal for cleaning the purse and removing scuff marks. Other cleaning options include white toothpaste and white leather cleaners.
A little white toothpaste on a toothbrush can get rid of ink stains on white leather. Remove the toothpaste with a damp cloth and buff the area dry with a soft cloth. Some products designed to clean white leather, such as White Wizard, may be too harsh for a purse since these cleaners are designed for cleaning shoes made of white leather. Water-based cleaners such as detergent should not be used on white leather, as the detergent can damage the material. Treating the purse with a stain and water repellent can also protect it from further damage and stains.
