How to Clean your Ukay Finds & Other Leather Goods

JC Dy, a Phoebe On A High reader, asked via phoebe_onahigh@yahoo.com how do I clean my ukay finds specially my shoe finds. After sharing to her my secret, I thought I should share this to all of you too. Here's the story. I just found out about this product by accident as I was thrift shopping in Guadalupe before going to work. I have a lot of stuffs with me and I needed a caryall bag so I dropped by. Of course I found a good faux leather caryall bag but it was a bit dusty so I asked "Manong" if he could wipe it for me. He took the product he uses and wiped the bag clean. Of course I asked him where to buy that product but he failed to give me an answer. So after frequenting mall stores, specially Ace Hardware, I've finally found it! 


Ladies and gentlemen, this product will be your friend too! Good for leather materials and pleather, faux leather stuffs. I've tried it with my bags and leather shoes and it definitely made them almost looked new.
Wipe Out Dirt and Stain Remover
