TIPS ON HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR DESIGNER HANDBAGS

People who know me are aware of my love for handbags! I have come across a lot of people who have asked me if I have had bag which got ruined and if I know of tips on how to take care of them! When you burn a hole in your pocket to buy your some of your favourite bags, I am sure you will also be keen to gather knowledge of how to take care of them so that they stay with you for a long time!

Over the years I have gathered some experiences about this myself as well as gathered tips and inspirations from other people. 

So here are some simple tips on how to take care of your designer handbags so that you can keep them with you and love having them by your side!

 

1. ALWAYS STORE THEM IN A CLOTH BAG & NOT PLASTIC BAGS

Always store the bag in the dust bag (cloth bag) they come in. If your bag doesn’t come with a dust bag don’t be paranoid you can always find other alternatives. one option would be to store them in clean 100% cotton pillow cases.  A new way to use pillow cases for your handbags to help them breathe nicely. 🙂 Never use a plastic bag to store your handbag as plastic bags don’t allow the bag to breathe and develops moisture which can ruin the leather/material of your bag.

2. MAINTAIN THE SHAPE OF THE BAG BY STUFFING

When storing, never pile bags on top of one another. Stuff your bag with scarves, clothes or acid free tissue papers to maintain their actual shape or simply when you buy a bag they come with paper rolls or stuffing.Try not to throw them away.

3. ALWAYS KEEP YOUR BAG AWAY FROM SUNLIGHT IN A DARK PLACE WHEN NOT USING IT

This tip is mandatory for coloured leather bags as sunlight can fade the actual colour of the bag and can ruin the material of the bag due to heat. Always store your bags in a darker and drier place where there is no sunlight and less moisture.

4. PUT ALL YOUR ITEMS IN ZIPLOCK OR POUCH BAGS TO PREVENT THE INTERIOR OF THE BAG

I love to compartmentalise everything I carry in my bag or luggage. First, it saves a lot of time from digging into what you are looking for and secondly it prevents the interiors of the bag from stains . So if there is any spillage of any liquid items or makeup , it will not have any direct effect on the interior of the bag. 

5.  CLEAN THEM MORE OFTEN

Cleaning and maintaining your handbags on a regular basis is extremely important! While in storage, moisture sits on the bag’s material which starts to cause them to lose their shine, texture and ends up ruining them badly! Clean them more often but again don’t over do it as chemical products used for cleaning can damage the material of the bag. 

I hope  you find these tips useful, simple and easy. 

So no more getting worried about losing your favourite designer handbag. You can keep loving them and find them beside you as your best companion  by just treating them nice and taking good care of them!
