Happy Holidays everyone! I had a few heart-stopping moments yesterday and thought I should share them with you. As some of you know, I got an 05 caramel twiggy last month. It has always been a big color on my wishlist and I felt really lucky to have found it. There were some areas of the bag that were pretty dry though and it was faded in some spots. I've treated it a few times with Apple Care lotion, particularly on the top panels surrounding the main zipper, but wasn't happy with the effect at all. Yesterday I decided to bite the bullet and try Lubriderm I know there's been talk of using lubriderm on b-bags in this forum, but I am not one to apply things on my bags just because. Anyway, I must say the results are a very pleasant shock HOWEVER I am not recommending that you try this on your own B-bags as the procedure isn't risk-free and it would be sad to lose a B-bag to an experiment. Ufortunately, I don't have good "before" pictures because I didn't want to document my stupidity and have something to cry over later on... I do have the original pics I took though, and some "after" shots. Step 1: Bought some Lubriderm. Hard to find here - I could only get Lubriderm Skin Nourishing Lotion with Shea and Cocoa Butters, so that's what I used. Step 2: I applied Lubriderm on my hands, warmed/spread it out, then massaged it into my B-bag (while holding my breath and cursing myself at the same time). I did this ALL OVER Step 3: Registered SHOCK as my bag turned DARK AND DULL everywhere. Took a deep breath and decided to even out the color with more Lubriderm (what can I say? I'm nuts) Step 4: Waited and prayed. I put the bag away to dry (Where I would't see it - I was experiencing some real regret at this point) Step 5: Checked on the bag after a couple of hours and VOILA! The color had evened out nicely! Step 6: Took the bag outside and sprayed Apple Gard ALL OVER. Left the bag to dry overnight. Step 7: when I realized that my bag now has the perfect Caramel color all over, and is a lot smooshier than when I first got her!! The AG seemed to have restored the shine as well. Step 8: Breathe a sigh of relief and promise to NEVER EVER try this again!!!
