What does one do when they get a huge water stain on their favorite leather purse?!?! Let’s rewind to many years ago when the same thing happened to my dad’s briefcase. I remembered that he was able to save it by dipping it in water, so I decided to try something similar. I wasn’t sure if dipping just the outside would get the even look I was going for, so this is what I did:
I decided to mimic how I got the water stain in the first place. I had spilled a liquid on the inside, and then the water oozed out and caused the stain. So, I filled my tote to the brim with water and…
…let the water ooze out!
Viola! Good as new! I hung it (to keep it’s original shape) in the shade to keep the leather from drying out. I’m so happy I could salvage one of my favorite purses! And I learned something new. So, of course, I had to share it with you! Here’s to saving money and salvaging our leather goods. #leathergoods #worththeinvestment
