hi girls- so i've seen some threads with qu's about how to care for your HH leather. there isn't really any guidance from HH, and not much field testing on tPF so maybe you will be interested in my little drama today. yesterday i got my new Suki Ladybag in Saddle and promptly & excitedly took her out today. towards the end of the day, i noticed that the side that faces me had turned a smokey charcoal color, a dye transfer from my black jeans. i tried not to cry and promptly got myself to a computer to search tPF for advice. some people recommended applecare products, baby wipes, going to a cobbler/leather professional, and using a white eraser (like on the tip of a pencil, but only the white ones). to stave off the tears, i had to do the quickest thing possible... so the pencil eraser it was. after 20 min or so of gentle rubbing (testing a hidden part 1st), i have to say it worked really well. there are still 1-2 small (pea sized) areas that are a bit darker, but the big huge smokey smears that looked like a fingerpainting project gone horribly wrong have vanished!! using the eraser is a bit nerve wracking, because it removes the stain, and then the leather looks *lighter* than the non-stained normal leather around it. but if you just run your finger over the cleaned up areas, it turns back to the normal color (maybe the oils in my finger?). these jeans have been washed many times and never rubbed off on other bags i own, so i am a bit terrified now about the softness/vulnerability of HH leathers that are unfinished and super soft/porous seeming like the saddle. loving this bag so much just shaved a year off my life i think!! i'm going to be alot more careful from now on, and probably carry an eraser with me!
