    i have them too. sa said it's rubbing.
    she said go to sears and get milk, it's for shining shoes, and it will clean it up quite a bit. she has used it on a few of hers and heard of it from another sa! have not tried it yet, but have also heard of using an eraser.

    I agree, I tried meltonian lotion milk and it doesn't darken the vachetta.

    You can buy the leather conditioner lotion milk that I use, it's called the "Meltonian leather lotion" cleans, polishes and preserves, it's for leathers, patents, imitation leathers, reptile skins & vinyls.

    It works on pretty much everything. It's a gentle lotion.


    Okay..I pretty much just answered my own question doing a search for milk on this forum...therefore, I know others wondered the same thing -what is this millk....now we know!!!
     
  8. Question is then....guess we aren't suppose to use it on new bags? Then when? After a year? Then how often? just curious...thanks!!!

    BTW..those of you who own All-clad Stainless pots/pans - need a good cleaner to clean excess marks you can't get from normal washing/cleaning I found this AWESOME stuff at Williams-Sonoma -Mark's Bartenders Best Friend - something like that, it's a cleaner like Comet - and it will make your All-clad SHINE like NEW!!! It was amazing and a steal for only $2.50....okay now :back2topic:
     
  9. its actually for shoes!

    the manager as Saks in boca told me to use it. i have a speedy 30 that is from 1995 and has some minor cracking. she brought up the milk to me. its from sears and its only , like, $6.95. she said she has only put it on older bags, never new.

    you let it sit for about two mins and rub/wipe/buff it off with a soft old tshirt or soft cloth. keeps the canvas looking 'clean' and 'bright' and really lovely.

    I AM NOT SAYING TO USE IT ON YOUR VACHETTA OR LEATHER PARTS!
    THIS IS FOR THE CANVAS!!!!!!!!!!!

    just so that last point is clear, i don't want to be blamed for botched bag-jobs!

    it is nice, i like having something to keep the canvas supple and moisturized, even though many people say there is nothing you can safely use, i like this stuff.

    it is called milk , ill see if i can find it online or even post a pic or more info on it!

    later ladies, sorry it took so long for me to get to the post!
     
  10. and i dont know how old the bag has to be to use it. the new bags i have are not in danger of cracking, or stretching or anything. i dunno, maybe you go by feel. whatever and whenever you feel your bag may need it. wait until you have a patina at least.

    with a brand spanking new bag, make sure to use you shining monkey stuff. i have not used that, but others here SWEAR by it! you spray the whole d@mn bag and it is protected!
     
  11. photoobsessive vbmenu_register("postmenu_1745080", true); -thanks so much for the follow-up, much appreciated!!!

    shining monkey stuff - guess this stuff is used for the newer bags, I should go out and get some -but where, anyone know?

    thanks again for your feedback!!!
     
  12. shining monkey is a product to avoid you can get alergies, On of the pfers got a very bad skin reaction.

    Shining monkey is a car product not to use on a handbag


    As for meltonian milk it's great to clean the vachetta
     
  13. Thanks for your feedback...guess I won't buy any of the shining monkey stuff - I don't want an allegeric reaction.....oh well, guess I won't do anything to my bag for now! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us!!!!
     
  14. I've used shining monkey on many bags, and love it! A great protector and not as greasy as the apple spray....
     
  15. Yeah! I love shining monkey!!
