Hi, I got this lovely Makowsky handbag, very soft Vachetta color(light caramel). I would like to waterproof the leather to avoid stains but I am concerned to to change too much the color and because the leather is so nice and soft and would love to keep it as close to original as possible.
What are your suggestions please.
I saw from previous forum suggestion to use Wilson leather and suede protector.
Thank you

I don't know about the other leather protectors, but I used Apple Rain and Stain Repellent (from on one of my Makowskys a few times, and it never changed the color at all. It does darken at first of course while it's wet, but when you let it dry completely, it's back to normal.
