Last nite splashed vino on the handle, of course it has to be MERLOT. It was a splash. I used a pencil earaser to lighten it up. It's better, but still there. You can see it looks now lighter where I tried to get the stain out. You can see it is a differnt color then the top handle. I thought I read on this forum for pen marks ...so I tried. I have only had the LV for a little over a month..so it still is very light, any ideas? I did use appleguard on it but, I guess, it didn't work or I didn't spray well. Will it be ok after it gets to the honey colored patina?? Maybe not as noticabe.Any tips?? Pics attached but might be hard to see.
