A quick tip: next time you need to clean up a scuff, scratch, slight discoloration, or makeup stain on your leather bag, use some face oil. Walker Baron, painter and monogramming extraordinaire at Clare V. suggests testing a small area of the bag first (dark oils will probably worsen a stain on light leather—and don't try this on suede), then putting a little oil on a cloth before buffing it into the stained area. His oil of choice? Rodin Olio Lusso. Though he also jokes pizza grease might work just as well. ***Please do not try that either.***
