    Default Louis Vuitton - Alma Bag water stain and some scratches!

    I have a pre owned Louis Vuitton Alma, which I just purchased it last month.
    When I bought it, it has already water stain at the bottom corner of my bag and some scratches on it.
    Can you help me what kind of cleaner I use for it to restore, clean and remove some stain.
    My more concern is just removes or lessen the water stain of the leather.
    Attached are pictures for your reference.
    I would appreciate if you can help me.

    Water stain removal is typically done with Vachetta-2.8.
    Using a cotton swab soaked Vachetta-2.8 and applies to saturate the stain and change the cotton swab as it picks up the color until the cotton swab appears clear.
    Then leave the leather to dry will see the disappearance of the stain with repeat for deeper stain as appropriate.

    Restoration of leather or leather rejuvenating for suppleness with softness and strength is accomplished with Hydrator-3.3 > Fatliquor-5.0 Hydrator-3.3 system.

    Restoring some scuff is done with Protector-D to seal and conceal it.

    See example of water stain removal with Vachetta-2.8

    Leather Doctor Kit V3 – Vachetta Leather Browning Removal Kit
    Leather Doctor® Kit V3, unfinished leather care system is design for corrective appearance of vachetta, saddlery and veg-tan leathers from browning liquid stains. These alkaline pH sensitive leathers when neglected often suffer unsightly browning stain marks from a variety of liquid sources. Even apparent clean rain and tap water often leave a lightening spot with an outer ring. The pH 7 alone of water will often cause a rippling effect on the tannin that destabilize and causes it to moves. Browning correction is performed by using Vachetta-2.8, a pH 2.8 specialty leather cleaner that is particularly effective in emulsifying oily soiling, redox mild brass tarnish, lightening suntan and water staining effect. A holistic system includes rejuvenating the leather structure for softness with Hydrator-3.3 to relax, follows with Fatliquor-5.0 to soften when dry and protecting with the healing properties of Protector-D thereafter. The lightening effect takes place when the leather dries. When leather is wet and dry again, it will often stiff up, as the fibers becomes stick closer together. Hydrator-3.3 helps separate and open up the inter-fibrillary spaces preconditioning for effective Fatliquor-5.0 replenishing to lubricate for leather flexing smoothness from cracking. Replenishing the leather structure with fat and oil after browning corrective cleaning besides the softening effect also prevents the ingress of liquid stains as a preventive measure. When leather is full of fat and oil, it makes the leather less absorbent. Fat and oil conditioning or rejuvenating with Fatliquor-5.0 mellows and enrich the appearance of the leather while most oil conditioners will simply darkens and dulls the appearance poorly. Protector-D enhances a rub resistant draggy-feel against friction rubs and is use routinely to conceal and fill scuffmarks. Body contact areas should be clean routinely with Clean-3.8 follows with Rinse-3.0, thereafter applied with non-stick protection and commence for another cycle of use. Darken and prolong body grease and sweat contacts will require a degreasing process with Degreaser-2.2 follows with Acidifier-2.0 in most cases. Preventive cleaning and protection to shield against sticky soiling, with the abilities to heal and conceal lightening scuff and abrasion marks keeps the leather appearance level high at all times rather than relying on corrective or salvage cleaning where the cleaning appearance deteriorates and diminishes with each cycle. Note that the mentioned products suffix numbers denotes its pH value in this holistic approach to removing vegetable, plant and water stains from vachetta, saddlery and veg-tan leathers.
