My SA only told me to wipe the leather if it was exposed to rain after a couple of days with the soft cloth. But I was also wondering whether the leather needs conditioning

I've used Apple Care & rain protectant on my metallic bag, and it looks like new!
Is it the spray protectant you have??? I got one of those but in a different brand but it said on the bottle DON'T USE on Metallic Leather :sweatdrop:. So I need to make sure that Apple Care works before I go get it............

^I've used both the conditioner and the water repellent spray. There's no change in difference in appearance of feel of my bag.

Or is there anything else I can use to help protect it? thanks
I haven't try it but I remember that on Coach's moisturizer said that cannot be used on calfskin.
So I think it is OK to use on metallic bag as it is lambskin. However, you always need to test on a very very tiny spot first.

I'm visiting from the H board and so know absolutely nothing about Chanel leather nor how to maintain it.

I own a DS reissue and at time of purchase, I received conflicting advice from two different Chanel SAs. One said that I never had to do anything to the bag ever. And the other recommended that I either (A) conditioned the leather myself every 6 months so that it will not dry out. Or else (B) drop it off at the boutique every year to be serviced. But that would take months.

Which is it? TIA!
