Moldy Leather

I cleaned one of my leather purses with neutral shoe polish.  It looked OK, but it smelled bad.  Richard suggested putting soda in it.  That worked.  It took about three days, but today it smells like leather.
I also wanted to find my Bridge waist pack as I want to take it on vacation with me.  Well, when I found it, all the stuff in that sterilite container in the basement had molded!
 I took the moldy treasures over to an Amish guy who does leather work.  He recommended cleaning them with saddle soap.  So I spent hours this afternoon cleaning these.  Tomorrow I'll do more of them.  The saddle soap did an amazing job and they don't smell.
