I'm going to start my next rehab project with Baxter. Just received it on Tuesday and the leather definitely needs some love, but it feels supple and I have a good feeling this one will turn out amazing.

Quoting my own before picture to show the difference. This bag rehabbed beautifully. While would guess this baby is over 26 yrs old?

Hello everyone,
Has anyone had any issues dunking an Ergo with Kiss lock? Mine arrived in the mail today and the interior is a hot mess.

I have and it came out fine, I even laundered it in the washer! See before and after pics at link below:

And here's a little more info about my Ergo rehab, good luck!

Thanks for the information Katev. My Ergo is a different style. I should have attached a picture. If anyone has had experience with dunking this style, please let me know.

Duh! You said Kisslock but I was thinking Turnlock, sorry!

I've dunked and rehabbed 2 kisslock ergo bags and they both turned out well, see the links below for my tan patent ergo.

She’s finally dry!
And the pen marks all came out once I dunked and lightly scrubbed with a toothbrush! :eek:I was expecting those pen marks to be more of a challenge.. was already planning to try that Debi the restorer cuticle remover trick… really glad I didn’t have to haha
One of the pen marks was a little more stubborn on the front of the bag and I think I scrubbed too much and actually lifted off some of the dye :frown: I think it’s not that noticeable to others (but it’s noticeable to me:crybaby:) I ordered some Angelus leather paint in English tan and I might go over that section and along some of the piping.. or I might just leave it and call it character:biggrin:

Interesting, your bag does not have leather encasing your metal frame of the Kisslock. My frame is encased in leather and that's what I'm concerned about.

Maybe it is only the patent Ergo bags from that era that don't have a leather covering on the frame. Here's the other one that I rehabbed and it was a black patent Ergo kisslock 12520

This isn't an Ergo, it's a Rose Legacy Bridget, but it is from the same era and it has a leather covering over the kisslock frame. I gave it a bath and it came out fine:

Katev, thank you so much for sharing your experience! This has given me the courage to go ahead and dunk this bag along with the others. I'm excited and look forward to tomorrow! Once again, thank you!
