I wanted to share some info about this product to you guys for two reasons. First reason being, that one of our former members was pushing this product on our board a while back without disclosing her affiliation with Shining Monkey - more precisely, her being the owner of the business that sells SM as a bag care product. A person sharing her biased positive testimonials without actually telling that she cashes in on every order someone places in her store, constitutes a sneaky business tactic that doesn't fly with us. Additionally, from communication on tPF, it became apparent that she did not disclose her affiliation on purpose, not wanting to deal with bitter customers, should her product have caused damage to a customer's bag. For this reason, her posting privileges were removed and the URL to the product was banned from tPF. The product Shining Monkey Fabric Protector was initially introduced as a car care product to be used on targa tops, fabrics, or leather interiors. About 6 months ago, this product was migrated over to the fashion market as a bag/shoe care product. I learned that the long term effects that the product may have upon applying it to your precious bag's leather are anything but certain, as Shining Monkey has just recently been introduced as a bag care product (the website advertising it as a bag care product was registered in February of this year). Whether there was enough time to test its effects on different leathers that are used for designer bags is questionable. I can not and will not vouche for any other bag care products, and maybe SM really works wonders on bags... however, judging by the poor business ethics by the owner and SM being new on the bag care market, I would like for you all to exercise caution.
