    Personally, I wouldn't recommend putting anything on it, especially since you have had it for 2 yrs already and the spots are already set in.

    thank you jennifer! I guess it's not that noticable, it is only on the handles. i just purchased an alma about a month ago and i am worried that its going to happen to the bottom. any suggestions?

    Default leave it

    If you are talking about the part of the leather that oxidizes (the handles and such) that part cannot be cleaned I was told. From my understanding before it fully oxidizes any stain it takes in is there forever. I had the same issue with a few water marks on my 'alma'.

    that's the hardest thing about vuittons is keeping them clean before they oxidize, but if you are successful, such a pretty payoff!!!:)

    I use Saddle soap for cleaning leather on bags thats already used and shiningmonkey to protect.

    Use the products and follow all the instructions.

    Don't use Appleguard cleaner on the vachetta. You can use the conditioner on the vachetta, though. You can clean the handles with some Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, but then you need to use conditioner as the ME dries the vachetta. Murph has some good tips as well. Shiningmonkey has been used by a lot of LV lovers with great results.

    There's some excellent advice here. I will echo the saddle soap recommendation. It's great for getting dirty spots out of vachetta, as long as the vachetta isn't naked or brand new. Always follow up with a protector spray or conditioner, too!

    Yes, saddle soap on Vachetta is perfect. You have to be very careful and use caution when cleaning anything. Never over saturate with water.

    baby wipes are great for bags esp. lv, i would say if you are really concerned and nothing works take it to lv they will clean your bag nicely and professionally, they may charge you sometimes they do sometimes they dont, it wouldnt be more that $50, i would expect around $20. btw i have heard a new range of nomad eleathercare will be released soon, so it may do the trick, nomade is really just tanned vachetta
