I have the Radley cross body pocket handbag and its looking rather scuffed and a bit past it really but until I find something I want to replace it with is it possible to make it look a bit better? Its just for schlepping around with kids etc so it'll do until my birthday later in the year but it would be nice if I could spruce it up a bit... all I can think of tho is anything topical will rub off on my clothes wont it - lost cause?
I used a kids black polish .. The squeezy bottle type on a ri2k bag . Not come off on any thing yet ( just don't squeeze too hard as I managed to splatter it all over the work top and tiles ..,, bags fine though ;)
I don't know the bag, so not sure which type of leather it is made of or what colour it is, but I have a few different Mulberry bags that I have used Collonil Leather Gel on if they look a bit tired - these bags are made of different leathers and have different finishes/treatments and the gel has worked well on all of the bags, including a natural leather bag that has not been dyed.
The gel doesn't help if colour has been worn off a coloured bag (such as a green bag). So in that case, I'd suggest getting a leather/shoe polish in the correct colour.
For stained bags, I use baby wipes. They seem to be able to clean quite well without staining or drying the leather out. The Collonil gel does seem to be able to lift off some dirt too, but I actually think the baby wipes are better at that. I usually use the wipes, then use the gel when the bag has dried.
