  1. I am absolutely in love with my Lizard City in Castagna, so i thought I would take care of it. Then I applied saddle soap to it. Now it is left with white marks and the leather has hardened a bit. What shall I do? I know that LMB does PH restoration, but I am not sure I want to send the bag all the way to the US (i live in the London), what if it gets lost? Any suggestions?
     
  2. Is there a specialist in the UK perhaps? Hopefully someone will be along who can help more. I would email pics to Barbara and ask her opinion just to see what she suggests. She's very helpful so maybe it's something you could correct.

    Have you tried rubbing/massaging the streaks with a clean white soft cloth? I only ask because I've used saddle soap on my saddles before and it's left a white residue that buffed out with extra attention. I don't have any suggestions per the hardening.
     
  3. What is saddle soap and why did you apply it? I'm sorry this happened, but I'm sure there is a way to restore it. Don't worry! The girls on tPF will know what to do!
     
  4. There is a company www.furnitureclinic.co.uk that may be able to help? They also restore handbags. I have used some of their products before and they are v helpful If you email them. Good luck!
     
  5. Sorry about this but why on earth do you want to put saddle soap on Lizzard???

    I am convinced there are some experts in London who can help you.
     
  6. Thank you for all your comments girls.
    Saddle soap is used to clean and condition soaps. Seriously, I once read it on 'IN Style' magazine and they recommended this type of product to clean and condition leather bags. I guess I was too keen to 'baby' my bag.
    I will report bag on the progress
     
  7. I emailed Barbara and she said that I can correct the pH with their products. Sounds like my baby is going to be ok!
     
  8. ^^^ Good news. Barbara is great. I feel your pain. It is particularly hurtful when you are just trying to do something good and it turns out bad.
     
  9. I'm so happy for you! Barbara works wonders and that's great news that it can be fixed easily.
