    Managed to stain a clear wallet! Help

    I carry my TB clear wallet in a front jeans pocket with another leather wallet. I noticed the clear window of my wallet is now stained black. Is there any way to clean this? I washed the wallet but it did not come out. Picture:


    Love the wallet. And I am known as a world class spiller, so I can get anything dirty.

    Thanks

    hi joiedwards!

    you can empty your wallet and wash it with a mild natural dish soap. the urethane, the ultreasuede dividers and the 1000d cordura or 1050d ballistic nylon (whichever may be on the back of your clear organizer wallet) are all washable.

    let your clear organizer wallet dry completely before replacing the contents.

    is the clear urethane stained on the outside of the wallet or on the inside?

      Hi joiedwards,
      A couple of questions, what kind of soap did you wash it with, is that stain black from the leather or blue from denim jeans? If washing didn't work maybe Katy or Darcy will have some ideas.
      Take care,

        I washed it with liquid laundry soap. The stain apparently happen with a black leather wallet in the front pocket of jeans. After washing, the urethane was just as stained as you see in the picture. The stain is on the outside.

          Ok, well, if you consider it wrecked anyway, and while not "green" I find lighter fluid sometimes removes stuff that nothing else will. The problem with that is that it might have a less than friendly effect on the plastic of the wallet. Have you emailed Katy or Darcy. They probably have seen something like this before?

              Pure acetone should work. You can get in the beauty section of most drug or grocery stores. I'm just not sure how it will affect the plastic.
