A few weeks ago I decided to unclutter my closet and I checked my leather bags (a Coach Zoe leather bag and LV Delightful MM) – I was surprised my Coach Zoe was in dire need of some moisturizing! Here are some tips I found online on how to take care of bags – read on especially if you have designer or pricier bags.
You will not have to click here for outdoor fountain – just read on to see tips to keep your bag in pristine condition:
Treat it. For leather and canvas bags, it’s wise to treat them before taking them out into the wild (or just out of the dust bag). That way, the bag’s surface is preconditioned to weather to storm, literally, in those situations where you may just be caught in a downpour sans umbrella.
Brush it. For suede bags, spring for a suede-friendly brush, like this brush-and-eraser combo ($5). To “groom,” all you have to do is brush gently to get stains out. Be wary of applying too much pressure; you might just take off some of the suede with all that strength.
Spot treatment. Take care not to use the wipe on any areas other than the affected one, otherwise you could spread the discoloration elsewhere.
Show your leather some love. Everyone — and we’ll include bags here — needs a pep talk.
Save your old pillowcases for the greater good. If you don’t happen to have a dust bag on you (or your bag didn’t come with one), a pillowcase will do the trick for keeping your off-duty bags fresh and protected. You want to steer clear of storing your accessories in plastics bags, especially if they’re made of leather or suede, because it will dry out the hide.
All things in moderation. We know it’s easy to throw everything into our bags and hit the road, but it’s good to take it easy on them. Translation: don’t overfill your bag. By putting too much in, the bag can lose its original shape.
