I've never sprayed mine. Let me know how it turns out, I'm sure it'll look great.

what did you use? if you sprayed it on vachetta did it darken?
I used shining monkey..I've had it for a couple of months and finally decided to spray the handle of my Galliera...shake it good..and then spray it on. It dries quickly...

I've never sprayed mine because I have the MC murakami bags I worried about the colors bleeding. I just never take them out in the rain or if I think it's gonna rain.

I just did it!!! i'm so relieved it looks good as new!!

The spray dried almost instantly and did not darken my vachetta or leave a single water spot.

I knew i had to spray something on it.. I live in the Bay Area and it's always sprinkling just a little outside.

I HIGHLY reccomend using Shining Monkey!
 
Where did you find Shining Monkey? I used Apple Garde on my Tivoli GM and although it never gets water/rain spots, it did darken the vachetta some. And, since I couldn't find Shining Monkey, I used Wilsons last week on my new mono Galliera GM. It worked great also. Dried instantly and didn't darken the vachetta at all.

Now, no spots for us!!!

I googled Shining Monkey and ordered it off the website. I'm sooo glad I did!! :biggrin:

And ya I've heard that Apple Grade darkens vachetta so i steered clear of that one.. I love the pale vachetta look, I wish there was a way to keep it looking young forever!

YAY no water spots for us! woop woop!

I live in Bay Area, too, and spraying the bag is a necessity. I posted a pic last night of my Galliera PM after I sprayed Shining Monkey. I love SM. It's so much easier to use than Apple Garde and it doesn't darken the leather!

I ordered some today so I can try it on one of my Dooney or Coach bags before I get my Galliera PM in two weeks. Did you spray the entire bag where all the vachetta is or JUST the handles?
