Save a Worn-Out Handbag

I found a beautiful designer handbag in a consignment shop for $30. If it were new it would retail for over $400. It had worn handles, but there is a product called Edge Kote that made it look like new.

Total Time: 10 minutes per coat of Edge Kote

Yield: One bottle lasts for a long time.




  1. Put a small amount of Edge Kote on the area that needs repair.
  2. Wait at least 10 minutes between coats.
  3. When you are done you can buff if you want it shinier, or sand if you want it duller. I liked mine just the way it was.

Thanks for this tip! I didn't know a product like this exists, but I'll be looking for some to repair a couple of things I have. You got my vote!
