    Default please help me figure this out!!

    I am trying to figure out what on earth could have done this to my purse.

    I saw it when I got to work. At first it looked like ink. It washed right off but had eaten through the leather!IMG_7204.jpg

    It had no smell, and I can't find any trace of it anywhere in my house or car.

    Probably clothes moths. The larvae will eat leather and then fly away once they become adults.

    Again, not bugs. This pic was after I cleaned it. I have been carrying this bag around every day for months. I can't imagine that moths could be on it. Definitely some kind of chemical. There was a dark liquid that at first looked like ink or grease or even chocolate syrup. It rinsed right off. Just trying to figure out what I could have come in contact with that could have done this so it doesn't happen again or whatever. I have considered every kind of cleaning product or makeup or whatever I have in my house and can't think of anything that could have done this. And this happened in the las 3 days, the bag has only been in my home, in my car, and on my desk. All three of those areas are totally clean. Certainly not any similar damage to the leather in my car or on my chair where I put my purse.

    Do you have any before pics? You might want to contact a leather specialist.
