The Shining Monkey thread was interesting because I was just coming on here today to find out what I can use on the handles of my Speedy (my first LV!!!) I know no one can vouch for anything but read that Applegarde and Wilson Leather Protector have been used with some success. Can anyone tell me where I can get the Appleguard product? I've used my bag for two days and there is already a smudge of some kind on one of the handles. :cry: I don't want to be scared to use it but it is an awfully expensive bag (at least for me!) and it will kill me to see it get messed up fast! I REALLY love this bag and am so happy ..... just want to keep it lookig nice.
