Top Three Things To Care For Your Leather Bags Properly
The high quality leather bag comes with century-old tradition carried on by skillful craftsmen. Therefore, it deserves the most attention. When asking how to care for your bag, first three things you should do is to properly clean, condition and store your bag. Here are some tips we learned during this process:
1. Clean your leather bag properly
ü Always handle the bag with clean hands. The bag is easy to absorb grease and oil.
ü Gently sweep your bag with a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth every other day. (Do not use too much water; leather takes time to dry.)
ü Once or twice a year, wipe the bag with a detergent specially made of leather to remove dirt accumulation. Apply in a circular motion and wipe with a slightly damp cloth to avoid clogging the pores of the leather.
2. Condition your leather bag properly
ü Leather conditioner is to keep the leather from drying out over time.
ü To prevent flaking and wrinkling, apply a leather care agent to a soft cloth and gently wipe the entire bag.
ü Depending on the dryness or humidity of the climate, use conditioner at least twice a year, at most once a month, to keep the bag soft.
3. Store your leather bag properly
ü Use a bubble wrap or parchment (but not a newspaper, because it smears) to inflate your bag to restore and maintain its shape.
ü Place the filled leather bag in the original dust bag, store it in the original box, and put it in a silicone package to avoid moisture.
ü Inflate the bag once every two weeks to prevent mold growth.
