Which brings us to today's topic: learning how to properly care for your purses. Here are 5 purse care tips that are sure to keep your precious purses in great condition for years to come.
1. Store Them Properly
After a long day the last thing on your mind might be to put your handbag away properly but this is actually very important in purse care and ensures that your purse lasts longer. Keep your purse in a dust bag and use a bag insert to keep its shape (or stuff it with tissue paper).
2. Keep it Looking Shiny and New
Keep metal hardware shiny by using a cleaner and polisher. It is also good to wipe down your purse with a soft cloth after a few days of use. Lastly, try using leather protectant on your leather bags to protect them from sun discoloration, dirt, liquids, etc. Here are some of our leather new arrivals:
3. Water Stains and Odor Removal
Accidentally got water on your purse? Don't worry! Simply blot the water and let it dry naturally, if the stain is still there take it to a professional cleaner and they will remove it as if it was never there.
To remove odors place a plastic bag with baking soda in your purse and close your handbag, leave this for one to two days until the odor is gone. Another option is to place dryer sheets in your purse for a few days
4. Rotate Purses
Rotate which handbags you use regularly to keep them from wearing out too quickly. It's always fun to change it up anyways! Here are some of our current favorites:
5. Prevent Ink Stains
Click pens are not our friends when trying to care for purses, they can easily leak and create a huge mess inside your handbag. Try switching to pens with caps or place your pens in a pouch instead (it's a good idea to keep your makeup in pouches as well).
