Problem: Bent-out-of-Shape Leather Bag
Solution, unlined bag: Melanie Charlton, founder of Clos-ette, a New York City wardrobe consulting service, recommends wiping down the inside with
a solution of five parts distilled white vinegar to one part water; this will make the bag more flexible. Then stuff the interior

Solution, lined bag: Let it stand, stuffed with tissue paper, for a few days. Or just carry it: Daily use will often help a bag regain its natural shape.
