The most common question we get asked from out clients is how to maintain proper care of designer handbags to ensure they remain in pristine condition for as long as possible.
The truth is, overtime, some bags will begin to look worn out; however, there are some precautionary steps you can take to keep your prized possessions in great condition.
Without further introduction, here are our five top tips on how to take care of your designer bags.
1. Switch up your daily bag
We all have a favorite bag that we like to use a little bit excessively; however, to prevent wear on your designer bags, it’s important to rotate between bags for daily use to ensure you don’t wear them out too quickly.
2. Storage matters
Don’t just carelessly dump your handbags in your closet or on the floor when you come home; most designer bags come with a dust bag, which is great to put your bag in to prevent dirt and from piling on on the exterior. Also, using tissue paper to fill up the bag after each use can help maintain its shape.
3. Invest in care
Many customers overlook the importance of bag care products like conditioners, water-proof sprays, and leather cleaners. However, always remember that a designer handbag is often looked at as an investment, and these products help ensure you get the most out of your investment by keeping your luxury bags in pristine condition.
4. Avoid storing makeup/liquids directly in your bag
When carrying any type of makeup or liquids that are prone to staining, it’s always essential to place all items in a protective makeup bag or pouch, and then placing them in your designer bag. This will allow the protective layer to absorb any spills/stains, and prevent any damage to your handbag!
5. Seek professional help to remove large water stains
Minor water stains can be taken care of at home with a small amount of leather cleaner and conditioner, but attempting to remove large water stains at home on your own can worsen the stain by causing it to spread. Don’t shy away from seeking professional help to remove extensive water stains, especially when you’ve invested a large amount of money on the bag.
