Have you ever ruined one of your favourite handbags? It doesn’t matter how much you paid for your handbag, you just always want them to last long – who doesn’t want to rock their bags for as long as possible? But, to do that, you need to take some simple steps. Here they are:
Do not put your handbag on the floor
There is a whole lot of germs and nastiness on the floor, so why place your precious handbag down there? Always try to place your handbag on the back of your chair, on your lap or on a neighbouring seat. Another option is to purchase a handbag table hook to help keep your bag off the floor.
Avoid over-cleaning your handbag
You want to avoid over-cleaning your leather handbags because a build-up of chemical products will also contribute to the destruction of your bag. Spot clean with water as necessary.
Know that all handbags are not equal
Find out what type of material your handbag is made of because it just may require different instructions to clean and preserve it. If your handbag is made of leather then you might want to invest in a Leather Cleaner, which is an affordable leather-safe option that will keep your bag clean and looking like new.
Never store your handbag in a plastic
Plastics do not breathe and are moisture resistant – it actually traps wetness! What this means is that using plastic to store your bags just may cause mould. Instead, always hang your bag.
Ensure you fasten the handbag
Leaving handles with heavy hardware to hang on the sides of your bag when not in use will put added stress on the handbag or may cause tearing so make sure that you always zip or fasten your handbags and then overlap any handles on top of it.
Swap out your bags from time to time
The best way to keep your handbags looking like new? Swap them out from time to time! The more you use one bag the more worn it is going to so be sure to rotate your bags regularly to prevent this from happening.
