As a classic material for handbags, leather is widely applied in the manufacture of bags and leather handbags are also loved by many fashion women and business men. The leather bag would look absolutely nice when you just buy it, but if you want it to look always as nice as it is newly brought, then you need to take good care of it. Handbags, like watches, need our proper maintenance to stay its nice appearance. Here in this article, I am going to introduce to you some leather bag maintenance tips, which I think is the basic knowledge of every bag lovers.
Mind The Storage
The way you store the leather products is critical to the products. Either they are totes, shoes, or belts, leather products need to be store in an appropriate place. Some people would just throw the bag in any place when they come home. However, they do not know that the throw would do much harm to the bag. If the leather handbag is placed in a damp environment, they would go broken easily. Therefore, one should store it in a dry environment where the moisture and dirt are away from it. Besides, the leather bags should not be stored in the plastic bag or other nonporous carriers as the nonporous environment is not good for leather.
Mind The Cleaning
Do not clean the bag often as exposing the bag to water or chemicals frequently is not good for the bag. Cleaning once a month is enough for the everyday-used leather bags.
If you want to clean the bag which is stained with food or blood, you should use a piece of damp cloth, instead of a wet one to rub the stain off. If the grease or oil contaminates your bag, the blackboard chalk powder is useful for the cleaning.
When you are going to use chemicals to clean your leather bag, you should take cautions to a certain kinds of chemicals. For example, the turpentine, alcoholic chemicals and the mineral spirits are the better-not chemicals for cleaning the bags as they would make the bag’s color fade.
Mind The Daily Maintenance
When you are carrying the leather bag, you should keep it away from the pointy items around you. And if you want to carry a bottle of water in it, make sure the cover of the bottle is well screwed and the water would not go out.
Sometimes we do not carry the same bag every day. Then, if you do not use the leather handbag, you should stuff it in order to keep the good shape of the bag.
Sometimes, if you take good care of a leather bag, it could last for a life time. Happy sharing the tips with you and hope they are helpful.
