To start off with they took a cotton bud and used it to gently clean the leather lining and straps, making sure to get right in every nook.
Next they tackled the inside of the bag using a narrow hoover attachment to get right in there are suck up all the dust that had collected at the bottom.
They then took precision tweezers and plucked out any fluff or hair that was caught in the lining of the bag.
They gently removed any marks or scratches, first with a blunted needle to remove any debris and then with a soft bristle toothbrush or leather brush.
They used the same brush with some fabric cleaner to revamp the bag’s inside lining.
The buffed the outside leather with soft brushes and then used a cotton bud to get right under the straps any clean any grim with a polishing solution, which they also used on the metal studs and plates on the bag.
