Do you know what should I do if I noticed a slight discoloration in the handles of my Hermes HAC? I think this is because my hands are too acidic. Please help!

Maybe go to DOcride's thread and ask her? (In the reference section, under vintage leather questions) she is very knowledgeable and will get back to you soon. . . Also it helps to post a pic. GOod luck!

I noticed the lightening of my Blue Thalassa Togo HAC's handle. I am beginning to see white parts of the handle. I think this is due to my acidic hands and my excessive cleaning. Please help.

When you say excessive cleaning, is that excessive cleaning of the handle or of your hands? I would definitely take your bag to H asap.
