I found a good vachetta cleaner (might be just UK)

  1. preliminary lesson: never use baby wipes with alcohol

    I use my azur pochette as a cosmentic bag, and the strap was getting a litle grubby from being handled all the time. So I baby wiped occasionaly it with some wipes I already had. I didn't bother to check the ingredients because it was just the odd wipe. Wrong! the vachetta began to dry out and crack a little. :push:


    On sunday, I decided to tan it on the window sill and then I remembered that I had some leather cream for shoes and bags. I decided to give it a try seeing as it couldn't be worse than babywiping with alcohol :sweatdrop:. So I applied some with a soft cloth and it cleaned it up a bit more, and brought back that velvety vachetta texture.

    I don't plan to use it often, but it's probably worth considering for the occasional touch-up. You can get it in Tesco
