The Plan B Dusty I got last night is already dirty :( I was wearing a dull, red dress today and somehow the bag picked up a bit of the color. Totally a bummer since it's still brand new, but I can't dwell on it.
With that said, does anyone know where I can pick up AppleGuard and Magic Rub in NYC?
I am going to assume you just meant chocolate on the leather
(If not, just let me know)
Just follow these directions:
Make sure there is no extra/excess chocolate
Mix a very small amount of lukewarm water with (like a half cup) with about a tablespoon of mild soap. With a clean sponge, gently "dot" at the stain while intermittently gently swishing around. The leather is going to be darker for a bit because it is wet of course. Wipe it clean, and let dry. The stain should be gone. If there is any trace of a stain, powder the stain with baking soda (Arm & Hammer) or a light dusting of cornmeal. That should really take care of it. After that's all said and done, I would suggest lightly conditioning the entire bag. =)
Thanks Gung, but the apple conditioner did the job, the stain was on the outside leather. And I did condition the entire bag too and looks great!!
This is a great thread! Question - has anyone had a water stain on a lighter color? A friend just suffered a water spill on her brand new Dusty Steady :( I suggested she go to professional, but is there a way to treat it on her own?
oh dear... i got a cream MAB and the handles darkened! what a nightmare! i tried to clean her using the apple stain thing, but it made it WORSE! though when i did check the cotton ball, it was all black. how very strange!
i wish i could do something about the handles :( they are nearly black, compared to the rest of my lovely bag! what should i do?
Missjenny did you use the cleaner? If the cleaner doesn't work, try a white plastic eraser or even a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (remember to test everything on a small spot first before you do a larger area). If all else fails maybe take it to a professional?
