Hi everyone,

I purchased this MJ bag during Saks' second cuts and it came and I'm excited but...I don't how how to treat it in terms of protecting it. I don't have a proper picture on me at the moment but the bag in question is the one in the screenshot below.

My main thing is with the grommets. Is protectant on the leather enough? Should something different be used on the grommets? Could the protectant discolor the metal? Ahh I really don't know!

Does anyone have any suggestions? Any advice is much appreciated!

Anyone? 。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。
I don't think very many people have this bag yet and can provide any advice. You may want to try posting in the Care & Maintenance forum and title the thread something like "Protecting metal grommets", that way maybe it will attract people who have similar bags :smile:

Good luck and cute bag, by the way!

I always panic whenever I get protectant on the hardware on my bag, I'm afraid of discolouring too

Any luck?
Someone in the other thread said protectant shouldn't discolor the metal. I'm thinking if I should just get it professionally done when I visit NYC in Oct/Nov. I know it's a while away but they'll probably have a better idea on what to do than I do. Still looking for more info on potential discoloration! I'll share anything I find! (´▽`)

Lurvebags, just as a mini non-update, I decided I'd email LMB to ask them what products they'd suggest in caring for the bag. I read some recent reviews of Leather Spa and they've been pretty terrible, so I figure I'll do my best and try it out. Will keep you posted!
