Handle leather handbags with clean hands
- Leather bags are susceptible to absorbing grease and oils. Wipe the surface of a leather tote with a damp white cotton cloth but be careful not to use too much water because leather takes time to dry.
Apply a cleaner especially made for leather
- This 'soft soap' is applied using a circular motion and wiped off with a slightly damp cloth so as not to clog the pores of the fabric. Applying this soap one or two times a year should keep your leather handbag clean.
Moisturise your bag with a leather conditioner to keep it supple
- Do not use a conditioner on patent leather purses.
Remove stains as soon as you notice them
- Organic stains from food or blood can often be removed with chalk powder. Crush white chalk let it sit on the stain overnight and dust it off with a clean cloth.
Stuff your unused bag with bubble wrap to restore and hold its shape
- Store your leather purse in a dust bag or natural-fabric pillowcase. You can wrap the chrome or metallic parts — a chain handle for example — in clean acid-free tissue paper. If you’ve just cleaned the bag allow it to air dry completely before storage. If you’re storing long-term ease open the buckles and straps so impressions are released. This helps to avoid rubbing or permanent creases in unwanted areas.
Clean suede bags with a suede brush
- Double check the manufacturer's suggestions for other cleaning solutions. Sometimes a clean pink eraser can remove small spots from leather totes.
- Think about using a leather-specific protective spray for brushed or finished leather if you use your bag frequently. Test this product first in an inconspicuous area to see if the finish darkens.
- Keep cosmetics inside a pouch. Cap all pens and anything that leaks. Get a small pencil case to protect the leather and keep small items from spilling or damaging the fabric.
- White bags will yellow or naturally darken with age.
- Avoid cleaning products with alcohol turpentine or other mineral spirits as they will discolor and dry out leather.
- Never allow water to soak into your bag. If the bag gets wet do not use a hair dryer on it. Instead absorb as much water as possible with a thick microfiber hand towel and allow the bag to air dry. Then condition it again and store it.
- Take extra special care of your bag at hair salons and keep it away from coloring solutions hair sprays and other hair products.
- Waxes or silicone products clog up leather pores and may render them unable to be cleaned in the future.
