Leather bags are elegant, durable, and long-lasting, but they require proper care to maintain their beauty and integrity. Here are some tips on how to keep your handmade leather bag clean and looking good for years to come:
Clean your bag regularly
Use a soft, dry cloth to remove surface dust and dirt from your bag. If needed, you can use a leather-specific cleaner, but be sure to read the instructions carefully before using it.
Avoid direct sunlight exposure
Direct sunlight can cause leather to fade, so try to avoid exposing your bag to direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
Avoid water exposure
Leather doesn’t react well to water and can cause stains. Avoid exposing your leather bag to rain and if needed, use a waterproofing product.
Use leather-specific care products
Use a leather-specific care product to keep your bag soft and hydrated. You can use a leather balm or moisturizing cream to keep the leather supple and flexible.
Store your leather bag properly
When not in use, store your leather handbag in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat. You can use a cotton bag to protect your bag from dust and dirt.
By following these simple tips, you can keep your handmade leather bag clean and in good condition for years to come.
