Hi there, I have a beige cambon large tote that i rarely use because I am paranoid about bringing it out when it rains. Now for some crazy reason, I am having the itch to get the beige in yet another style...Has anyone here pretreated with applegaurd? My friends on the bbag forum rave about the product. If not that, any other product?? finally, those of you that use your beige frequently, how has it held up? many thanks for your advice!!
