Apple GardÃ© Rain and Stain Repellent
It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring…
So ladies, have you been experiencing some April showers lately? I sure have! In fact, it has been raining all day today. And this is the 4th time in the past 2 weeks. What I hate most is that these aren’t just quick-passing showers. It will rain for hours on end! Oh my poor bag! I don’t want you to get all wet!
But wait, there is still more bad news. Just because April is coming to a close doesn’t mean we aren’t going to be having any more rainy days. Nope, summer is coming soon and we have all those summer thunderstorms to look forward to too! And since water can be a handbag’s number one enemy, we need to find some way to keep our bags out of harms way when an unforeseen downpour strikes. Now I have heard of some people carrying a plastic bag with them to put their handbag in if they are caught outside in the rain. But this seems so inconvenient to me… not to mention it would look awfully silly!
So what is my suggestion then, you ask? Well it just so happens that I stumbled across this product from Apple GardÃ© called the Rain and Stain Repellent. It can be used to protect all kinds of leather including suede and nubuck. It says that it is also safe for use on fabrics and exotic skins. However, there is no information about whether this is a safe product for naked leathers (perhaps you ladies can give me some feedback about this if you’ve ever tried it on your vachetta) so I’m not going to give it the go ahead on that quite yet. I hear though that this is a great product for Balenciaga bags.
So breath a little easier girls! No longer will you have to fear a passing thunderstorm because this product will protect your bag from dreadful water spots! You can find it here: LeatherStuff.com. It’s only $7 for a 5.5 oz can!
