Hi gals...yesterday i got my first LV It is 3 yrs old...the girl's mother had bought it as a graduation gift from eluxury. You can see it was well loved. The only real thing i'd like to fix up if possible is the handles are not dark brown but almost black. She had dirty hands being a bank teller she said (though i would wash them b4 touching my bags LOL especially hand held anyway) She recommended i replace them and i did get a great price but i'm assumnig it costs a ton to replace and i'd rather use this one when bumming around to the park and buy a new one than put money into handles. Having said that i'd love it if they were a bit cleaner looking...they even feel smooth like newsprint lol Is there some vachetta cleaning product that would help or is it hopeless?? Someone said magic eraser but i know what it did to my Oak table LOL oops Any advice greatly appreciated. Hopefully i can find my way back to the replies LOL Also how do i make a signature? I did not fill in profile info the day i reg'd and can't find my way back. Thx again.
