  1. Last night, my friend put a can of soda in my purse, and it inevitably burst. :rant: Now my smooshy light brown Foley & Corinna Mid-City tote that is only 2 weeks old is now 2 tone...the bottom is the color of soda! Is there any way to get it out? Please help!:crybaby:
     
  2. OMG Coco... I am soo sorry that happened to you! I would contact Lovin My Bags, she will be able to help you. Just don't do anything to it yourself.
    Good Luck!
     
  3. Thanks SO much! I am literally freaking out right now. The most I have done to it is pack it full of bags of rice to try to soak up the moisture. I know it works with cell phones, so I figured it couldn't hurt! Now that it's starting to dry out some, it looks less two-tone, but there is still a definite, considerable water mark. I hope hope hope Lovin can fix it, or at least dye it a uniform color!
     
  4. Ooooh Coconuts! Sorry! I hope you have success with cleaning your bag!
     
  5. Does ur friend offer to replace/repair ur bag ?
     
  6. ^ Good question...

    ...I mean, really, she should, I suppose? :shrugs:

    I think I would offer, if I'd put a can of soda into someone elses bag.

    Did she ask first, BTW?
     
  7. He did offer, but I felt like it was just as much MY fault for even letting him put it in there in the first place. Fortunately, now that it's dry, you can't see the stain as much but the leather isn't soft and nice anymore. I e-mailed the F&C crew after it happened, and they said that a dry cleaner who specializes in leather should be able to repair it. I'm still going to see what Lovin My Bags says before I take it there. Fingers crossed!!
     
  8. ^ Yes, best of luck! :flowers:

    I'm guessing it's the sugar that's making it less soft?
