Follow these 10 tips and your bags are sure to look like new for years to come!
01. Never Put Your Handbag on the Floor
There is a whole world 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 neighboring seat.
Another option is to purchase a handbag table hook to help keep your bag off the floor. It's an affordable option that's just a tad larger than a half dollar so it's easy to carry along wherever you go.
02. Handle Your Handbag with Clean Hands
You will want to avoid getting dirt, natural oil, and grime on your handbag. If not, you will find yourself always cleaning your bag, which leads me to the next tip.
03. 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.
04. All Handbags Are Not Created 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. This video will show you how to remove a stain from leather.
05. Never Store Your Handbag Without a Cover or Inside Support
There are a few different ways that you can store a leather handbag when it isn't in use.
Properly store your handbag in your closet using a purse insert for support and a dust bag cover. Most handbags come with their own dust bag cover so make sure you don't throw it away!
Another economical tip is to use tissue paper inside of your handbag to keep the shape and placing your bag inside of a pillowcase to avoid dust.
Purchase a Hanging Handbag Organizer to easily store your handbags in your closet. This will keep the dust off your bag and make it so you can quickly see and grab any bag when you need it. To maintain the shape of the bag be sure to stuff it with something!
06. Never Store Your Handbag in Plastic or Vinyl
Plastics and vinyl 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 mold. Gross, right? Stick with the tips outlined above to keep your bags looking like new.
07. Be Sure to Zip or Fasten the Handbag and Overlap Handles on Top of It
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.
08. Consider Using a Handbag Liner
Buy from Amazon
Protect the inside of your handbag from things like spills, especially if you frequently change your bag, by using a handbag liner. Not only will your bag be protected, but you'll also get even more pockets for storing things and a liner makes it easy to swap out bags quickly.
09. Do Not Wait Until the Last Minute to Make Repairs to Your Handbag
Don't wait to get those small repairs done because if you do, you may cause more bad than good. At the first sign of damage, visit your local seamstress or leather repair shop depending on what has actually happened.
10. 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 be so be sure to rotate your bags regularly to prevent this from happening.
Follow these tips to keep your bags looking like new.
When you spend money on a bag you want to know that it will last. Follow these steps and your bags will lost longer than you'd ever expect!
Remove surface dirt. Dampen a clean microfiber cloth with warm water. Gently wipe down the leather to remove any dirt. Let the handbag sit for several minutes until dry.
Clean off stains and oil buildup. Apply a small amount of leather cleaner to a damp microfiber cloth. Never apply leather cleaner directly to the purse. Gently rub the cleaner onto the leather in a circular motion.
Pay special attention to the handles and clasp areas, and remove any oils left from handling the bag. Remove the leather cleaner with a clean damp microfiber cloth. Repeat on any tough stains. Be careful to apply very gentle pressure.
Clean the Michael Kors signature lining. When the leather has dried, turn the purse inside out and remove any dirt or debris. Pull the lining away from the leather and lay it over a towel. Dampen a sponge and apply a small amount of fabric cleaner to it. Dab lightly onto the lining until fully saturated. Leave the bag open until dry.
Clean and polish the hardware. Dampen a melamine foam eraser. Lightly buff the purse hardware with it, including the Michael Kors signature logo. Be careful to avoid contact with the leather.
