Hi ladies, I recently (on 1 July) got a TOD'S Carey Media satchel and I absolutely adore it, partly because of its brilliant gold colored hardware. But I recently found darkened spots on the hardware that look like tarnish! oh the horror..... right now it's not obvious unless under close scrutiny, but i'm afraid that if i don't keep the problem in check the hardware may lose its brilliance... i really wasn't expecting this to happen with all the raves about the high quality of TOD'S bags and all.... what could have caused it? could it have been because i got leather cleaner/moisturiser on the hardware? or the climate (i'm in the humid tropics)? What can be done to prevent tarnish? and to remove it? I've read about brasso on this forum but i'm afraid it may be too harsh on the gold hardware... anyone ever tried brasso before? help much appreciated.
