...so, I called MJ today to ask if they recommend anything to protect any of their bags. The rep told me that they don't recommend anything since it's vegetable dyed leather. Should I listen, or am I being paranoid (or both)? I've been thinking about Apple Garding my camel-colored Stam, but after reading about a PFer's experience on her gray-toned Edith, I'm scared. It seems like her Edith changed colors. I would feel less hesistant if it was a black Stam, but it's not. I also live in DC where it gets humid and swampy, so I'm not sure what to do. The Stam is the most I've ever spent on a bag, and I just want to protect it, but not do anything to ruin it. I guess in writing this post, I've kind of answered my own question...to leave the bag alone and be extra careful when using it. I'm totally being crazy, right?
