Next thing to do would be to select a place where there is plenty of ventilation. It will be better if you can hang your purse from a support like a tree limb or high fixed hook or just lay it down on newspapers on the ground.

Beware of the odor. Your treated big would have a weird odor at first but like I said, ventilation is important. The smell should disappear in no time and you will notice that the color of the bag has darkened slightly. For most, this is not a major issue but in case you are too much into its appearance, just consider testing it on a piece of similar fabric before treating your handmade bag. Now stop worrying and enjoy using your bag. It is very well protected. For more helpful updates and ideas stay tuned to Artisna.
