OMG! Arghh, I'm super mad now! Please tell me mine is defect, is Lambskin THIS fragile!? @ friends' house celebrating NYE, had Starbucks (our NY resolution: sober 2008), after grabing an overflowing Marchiato(sp?), I noticed few drops of it on my Timeless clutch. So I went into restroom, absorb the coffee w/tissue, then wipe it w/damp tissue to remove the stickyness...and the horror begins! As i pick up the clutch after drying my hands, it left black inprints on the creamy sink counter!! There's no color transfers on dry or damp tissues, but the fade is somewhat noticeable at the right angle, and the stain will not come off of the sink counter I feel so sorry for the sink! Gosh, was it the coffee or the water that's causing this to happen? Also can I restore the fade by using black leather polish?
