  2. Set the bag in a sunny window!
     
  3. wow I never want mine to oxidize. But sun will do it.
     
  4. Im afraid there will be no sun untill next year not in england sooo im stuffed :sad:
     
  5. A desk lamp will work, too. Non-fluorescent bulb.... I like mine suntanned, too!
     
  6. Thankyou!!!I was going to damp it over with a slightly wet clothe...Yeah I think they look better tanned.With the leather being nearly white I feel as if I have to be really carefull when it comes to marks ect
     
  7. I just bought the lovin my bags mineral shield, and in addition to being a fantastic stain repellent, it also darkened the vachetta quite a bit.
     
  8. I cleaned the vachetta if my NF with baby wipes just last week and it darkened a bit.
     
  9. Iv just done that and let it dry.Im going to keep on going over it, thats what made me speedy go darker.....and rain :smile:
