and hairy too
I have this bag that is made of very supple leather. The kind you can't take out in the rain or spill water on because it will immediately soak/stain into it. Do you ladies know of a good cleaner that can lift these types of water stains?
Thanks!

Great question!

I was washing my hands after voting this evening and I spilled some water droplets on my bag . It hurts! Hoping for tips while I do some research! TIA!

Just relax...
You can get rid of water stains just be rewetting the area evenly with a clean, soft cloth or paper towel. I use bottled water only - and use a white cloth so there is no risk of color transfer

Try wetting it out to a seam, or if the spot is in the middle, just gradually fade it out evenly. I used this on my whiskey Chloe Silverado - it really works!

Good to know, couture_addict -- I'll have to try it the next time I get a water spot on a bag.

When you think about it, frequently water spots are due to (a) residuals in the water being left behind or (b) migration of dye from the water. In the former case, using pure water (e.g. distilled) should dilute/move the residue around so that it's not as prominent.

once I get some spots, I usually wipe the whole area and it all blends. It's part of the beauty of natural leather sometimes.

I got water stained my leather bag. It already dried but the spot became a little shiny. Can leather conditioner balance out the color and leather composition like nothing happened?
