Ladies! The other day I won an auction on eBay for this pretty little poppy silver leather swing hobo baby, for $84.00. You can see, she had a problem: With a little bit of rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs, I fixed her. Now she's hiding in the closet, waiting for some Apple Guarde to arrive in the mail to hopefully protect her from future boo-boos. Let me tell you - this bag absorbs everything. Any moisture that touches her turns super dark until it dries. Which of course means that any moisture with color in it (like a coke, or a dirty puddle) will soak right in. When I first touched her with a cotton swab of rubbing alcohol, I almost panicked a little when that spot turned REALLY dark. Much darker than the original spot I had to clean her several times, and put her in front of a fan each time to dry her so I could see what I was doing. Afterward, you could still kinda see that something had happened there, so I moistened a towel with rubbing alcohol and, starting where the spot was, sort of feathered rubbing alcohol away from the spot to blend it all in. You can still see *something* there if you look really close, but unless you know where the original black mark was, you'd probably never notice. I LOVE the way this bag feels on my shoulder when the soft leather brushes on my arm. To die for! I couldn't have done it without this forum and its many posts on how to clean bags. Thanks! I've only been a Coach fan for a few months (my friend Tisha dragged me into a store. I don't even like handbags! I'm not girly like that!) and am now obsessed.
