    So glad you found it!

    And I freaked out too the first time I used it - took a glass of wine and tBF telling me it was all going to be fine for me to calm down

    I magic eraser'd my Coach bag while hoping to quell my fears about cleaning my LV. It cleaned it well but it really dried out the leather! I need to buy leather conditioner. I'm thinking maybe I should wait a while to clean my new tivoli, but it already has a few very light marks and I don't want any markings to stain permanently. I don't know what to do.

    you definitely need to condition the leather after whatever you use to clean it. did the magic eraser darken the marks first and then disappeared when dry? I've only used on patina-ed vachetta and wondering how it affects new vachetta.

    We did say you have to condition the leather after cleaning because it will be too dry.
    You also have to be VERY careful not to scrub too hard. I would rush right out and purchase a bottle of the Coach conditioner for your Coach bag!


    It is very important to condition/moisturize as soon as your clean your bags!!

    So you condition while the leather is still damp/darkened from cleaning? I didn't want to do anything more to it as the darkening was a little alarming---I wanted it to dry so I could see the results.

    How about only using a cleanser in place of white/magic eraser?

    You can wait until the leather dries. That should take less than an hour then condition ASAP!

    Can the white eraser be used for watermarks as well?

    No, I tried that. I just used Apple Leather conditioner to try and even out the mark. But be aware that the leather conditioner does slightly darken the leather. I like it darker, that's why I used it.

    Have you applied waproo on your new bags?

    Yup, I did. But I picked up my bag when my hand was wet! Duh!! There is one faint watermark if you put your eyes right up to the handle because it's so light at the moment. I notice such things. But it's virtually gone after I rubbed in some apple leather conditioner sparingly.
