    okay so this was my very first designer handbag and i didn't take much care into it...i own a burberry nova check purse that is in the canvas style material and i wear LOTS of black so the black then rubbed off and stained my purse. Is there anything i can do to clean it or can i do anything with it at all like return it? (I bought it in Nordstroms and a friend told me that i can return anything there.)

    A light spray with a blowtorch should remove that awful Nova Check :ninja:

    I don't know Nordstrom's returns policy (I imagine www.nordstrom.com will tell you) but they're not very likely to offer a refund on something you've damaged.

    The dye should be fairly well set in the fabric if it's well made so a light dab of fabric cleaner won't upset it too much. It really depends what it is you've stained it black with.

    Since it is that plasticized canvas stuff... Soap and water should do most of the work...

    I mean.. you can't really ruin canvas... if it was leather, it'd be a diff. story.

    Saddle soap is what LV recommends for their coated canvas bags, and Burberry uses the same type of material (so they told me when I was luggage shoping). I wouldn't use soap and water, just to be safe did you consider maybe calling Burberry? Nordstrom's actually might take it back, they have a great return policy (none at all really--your friend is partialy right--they almost invented customer service), seeing as its kind of dumb that you can't wear black with a bag without it picking up the color. The bag actually might be defective. The purpose of coating a bag is so that it doesn't pick up stains. I doubt that could be proven though, unless it was fairly new and mostly unused.

    yea nordstrom's return policy is excellent...i got a shirt there as a gift and didn't like it and i ripped the tags off thinking i would wear it and they returned it with no questions asked and gave me cash back with no receipt....good luck
