After a month of taking an involuntary rehab break, I finally got to dunk a bag! A bottle green Dinky! The rehab was my usual steps plus polishing the hardware for once…:lol:

Some scratches on the back didn’t come out, they’re a bit deep so I wasn’t expecting too much of a change.

Before pics are a little washed out from trying to focus my camera on the wear, my bad!:

So devastated! Just went to put an order in on the cpr website and they're now saying they don't ship to England! When I did a mock order in the past it worked (I ended up buying from eBay instead).

Looks PERFECT!!! I like the Dinky strap because I'm so short that it's the perfect shoulder and xbdy length for me.

This is for all my color experts. I have a Zippered Clutch 9455. I assumed it should be a burgundy bag. However the wrist strap is clearly brown.
Can anyone clarify why this would be? Is the bag color off and needs recoloring? Is the strap a replacement?
For context I have dunked the bag, dried, and applied 1 coat of conditioner. I cannot get my phone to pick up all the red but has very red undertones

I got this cute colorful little patchwork canvas bag on shopgoodwill. M0649-10454. Turns out to have stains galore. Something catastrophic bad happened to this bag. Anyway, I threw it in the washing machine. Didn't help. I have one more cleaning technique I want to do (some heavy duty upholstery stain cleaner product), and my last resort View attachment 5106677 View attachment 5106678 View attachment 5106679 idea is to use fabric paint pens to draw/doodle/create art on top of the stains in complementary colors. Given the style that every little section is different, I think my added art would look like it's intended.
Those thick cloth straps are very difficult (or even impossible) to get clean. I would probably dump it in the with white Ivory dish soap, rub straight Ivory into the spots, and then scrub the areas vigorously with a soft nail brush - rinse and repeat over and over. I don't know if that will remove the stains but it might them lighter and less noticable.
