How to take care of your handbag properly. We all know the pain that comes when we ruin one of our favourite bags. It doesn’t matter how much you’ve paid for your handbag; you love it and want to keep it in mint condition.

To keep your bag looking great and to get your money’s worth, keeping reading for our tips.

Avoid putting your bag on the floor

There’s so many germs and bacteria on the floor, so why would you put your bag there? Try to place you bag on the back of a chair, your knees or a neighbouring seat.

Use clean hands

You don’t want to get dirt, natural oil or grime on your handbag so always handle your favourite one with clean hands. If not, you will always find yourself cleaning your bag which isn’t a good thing as you’ll see with our next tip.

Avoid over-cleaning

Avoid over-cleaning your leather bag because the build-up of chemicals will contribute to the destruction of your bag over time. Spot clean when necessary and follow our tips.

All handbags are not created equal

It’s important to know what material your bag is made from as different materials need different instructions to clean and preserve them.

Use a cover or inside support

Store your handbag in your wardrobe using a purse insert for support and a dust bag cover. Some handbags come with their own dust bag cover so don’t throw your away.

You can use tissue paper inside your handbag to help keep its shape and place your handbag inside a pillowcase to avoid dust.

Store your handbags with ease by using a hanging handbag organizer. This will keep dust off your bag and make it easier for you to see your bags in your wardrobe.

Avoid storing you bag in plastic or vinyl

Plastics and vinyl will trap moisture and can cause your bag to grow mould. Try to stick to our tips outlined above to avoid this from happening.

Swap out your bags from time to time

The best way to keep you bags looking like new is to swap them out from time to time. The more you use one bag, the more likely it is to become worn and damaged so be sure to rotate your bags.

Repair at the first sign of damage

Don’t wait to get those small repairs fix because you may cause more harm than good if you do. As soon as you see any damages, visit your local seamstress or leather repair shop depending on what damage you need fixed
