Okay - here's the whole long process. Outside: Started with Applecare products Leather Cleaner to get it cleaned. The cleaner works really good at cleaning dirt/grime from leather and coated canvas without ruining the finish. Then treated outside with Apple Leather Conditioner. two coats on the leather parts. Stripe: Taped off black area with masking tape. White stripe was Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint in Magnolia White. This is a softer white that most matches the bag. (I tested about 5 colors) Black was DecoArt Americana Black Used a small brush to paint on width-wise. (not length - caused streaks). "moved" the stripe as it was drying to prevent cracking. Applied a very thin layer of Americana Gloss for shine. Turned bag inside out because it was a big ole mess!! Had to. Inside: Used Woolite to start cleaning the inside. Didn't work. Moved to Tide with Color Guard - worked like a charm! Used a soft-bristled brush on most parts to scrub clean, toothbrush for corners/piping areas. Smells: Lovinmybags Odor Out Candies. I had one left from my prior order, it was a bit old, but tried it anyway. it's been pretty good but hasn't totally removed the smell - it's faint, but still there. Ordered a fresh one for one final stink removal. It should work. What didn't work: Prisma paint markers in black, brick white. You could see the paint - the white didn't really cover, and the black looked more purple. Had to remove it. Sponge-brush. It caused streaks, paint was a bit too thick. I don't know if this was just me - I think others have used a sponge and it's been fine. In one spot, the masking tape was not as secure as it should have been and there was a splotch of white paint on the black stripe. I used a q-tip and soapy water, gently rubbed the area and then pushed back the paint with my nail - and removed the excess. Whew!!! Glad it all worked and is finally over!
