The Little Brown Bag Blunder

Dear Sugar
I've recently used scotchgard on a brand new purse to try and protect it and it wound up turning the brown piping on the side white. Do you know of anything I can use on my new bag to fix it? Do It Yourself Debbie

Dear Do It Yourself Debbie
Unfortunately, once you scotchgard any material, the salient in it protects the fabric against any water or cleaning solvent which makes it impossible to remove. Is there any chance that you could pretend that the purse had white piping from the get go?

Try taking your bag to a cobbler or even a shoe maker to see if they have any tricks up their sleeve. I am sure they have seen this kind of thing more than once. Hopefully they will be able to work their magic and save your brown purse. Good luck.
