Before We Get to Those Steps, Don't Forget to Get Your Things Out of the Bag (No, This Isn't an Unnecessary Warning, Trust Us)
Hear us out - this isn't stupid-*ss advice. You wouldn't believe what people can forget sometimes. Maybe you're just tired after work - isn't everybody tired in capitalism? Or you were replaying an embarrassing event from yesterday in your head and forgot this first step. Here's an important tip before you put any products on the bag to clean it - empty that colorful Anvanda bag before you soak it into cleaning products, for the love of all that's holy.
Faded Leather Can Be Brought Back to Life - Here Are Those 4 Steps
Don't think those faded leather parts of the bag can beat your awesome Anvanda - we're gonna tell you in detail the steps that will make the bag look more perfect than life on Insta stories, baby. Ready to take notes on cleaning the bag, class? Okay, let's go.
- Step 1 - We're gonna start by applying leather cleaner all over the leather surface (don't we sound like a YouTube tutorial right now or what?). Next up, it's the conditioner - put a thin, even layer and massage the leather gently. Remove the excess conditioner if there's any.
- Step 2 - Time to get that leather polish. Make sure the color matches the color of the leather - if you can't find the exact match, go for a slightly darker shade. It will do a better job than the lighter one. Before you go all crazy applying the polish, test it on a small surface to see if the color is what you want. Wait 'till the polish dries before you make the verdict - wet polish is slightly darker than the dry one.
- Step 3 - The polish color is the right fit, so now you can finally go crazy with the polish. Don't forget the gloves if you value your skin, and use the cotton cloth to apply the leather polish. Sometimes, the first layer doesn't do the job, so you might need to go over the leather 3-4 times. Patience, darling, we'll get there. Make sure the leather dries before applying every next layer of polish, and use a clean cloth every time.
- Step 4 - Once your Anvanda gets its glory back, you know you've done it right. All that's left to do is remove the excess polish with a clean cloth and wait until the leather dries completely. If you wish to ruin some of your clothes or furniture, the waiting part is optional. You probably don't, but who knows? For all we know, you've been planning to remodel the living room, so a ruined sofa won't be a big deal. You get the point - wet polish will transfer, dry one won't.
