how do i care for my Coach purse?

I just got my first coach purse. I need to know how to take care of it. It has suade on it. Can i pre-treat the suede and the fabric with something to protect it from dirt and such? I am just so nervous, i haven't even put my things into it yet.
It's so pretty
BTW, this is what it looks like.
TIA! oh, and this may sound like a stupid question, but i am supposed to take off that little leather coach tag, right?

Congratulations Jen!! That is a beautiful bag!

As far as caring for it... The suede will be the most difficult part to keep clean. Thankfully, it's a dark color, so you're somewhat in luck . You won't be able to prevent it from getting dirty, but what you may want to do is pick up some leather/suede protectant that will at least keep it from getting water damage should you get caught in the rain . Check out stores like Foot Locker, City Sports, Clark's, Berk's, or any other sporting/outdoor/leather goods store for the spray. Coach makes a leather cleaner, but nothing to clean suede that I'm aware of.

As far as the jacquard (signature fabric) goes, if you get a stain, a little soap and warm water should help. You can also bring it into a Coach store and they will clean it for you (they may have to send it out, so you'll be without it for a few weeks). Do not use Shout Wipes or any of those other detergent spot cleaners/treaters because you will risk bleaching/staining/discoloring your bag.

Oh, and keep the hangtag on! You don't have to take it off, but if you want, it also makes a cute keychain/keyfob.

Congrats again!

thanks Anna. you are a big help. And i am so excited, as i love the rish browns in this purse. i jsut wish the suede was leather instead. i am awful hard on purses.
and i am in luck. i have some leather/suede protector already.
So, i don't need to treat the fabric then? awesome

oh, and thanks about the coach tag-so, i can keep it on, or take it off, right?

You shouldn't have to treat the fabric. I've been caught in the rain with signature bags before, and they don't get water-stained. I spilled soda on one of my bags before and some soap, water, and a hairdryer helped get it back to new.

Hangtag is up to you -- on or off -- either works Coach sells some really cute charms that you can use instead of the hangtag

Just wondering, I'm looking at the white/chestnut turnlock wallet and its so pretty! But I wonder if the white nylon will get dirty easily, and if so, how do I clean it?

I'm quite alright with the Coach fabric, I use soap and a damp cloth. But I'm not sure about Nylon..

Well, I personally would get that white dirty so fast it's not funny! And I'm not sure how to clean nylon...
