No, it did not remove the plating on my bag
(Silver hardware), but you might try a test spot on the metal ring on the inside of yourbag first if you are worried (or wherever you think is least noticeable).

Oh ok, good to hear! I'll def give it a try. Any tips on how to do it?

Just take a corner of the cloth and rub it on the tarnished area, covering the leather with a thin cloth or paper towel if you want to be extra careful. When the tarnish cloth gets dirty (it will turn black where it removes the tarnish), then turn it to a clean section, and repeat. Start with a cloth dry but if you have a really stubborn spot you can vary slightly moisten the tarnish cloth and go out it again.

Do you have those Fashion Jewellery polisher in your country?
Some are in Sprays. Some are Cloth Polisher.
Those worked on my plated CC gold earrings.
I am using - TownTalk Polisher.

You know, at the time it happened, it felt to me as if someone else's return was simply regurgitated to the next unsuspecting purchaser. .. It was SO obvious, it had to have been 'pushed through' the system
I think this happens WAY more than people would like to admit!
