Caring for your Handbags

You just splurged on a new designer handbag. Now how do you take care of it so that you are assured many years of enjoyment and use? Here are some tips on how to properly care for your bags.

1. FIND A PROPER STORAGE SPACE

Find a proper storage space for your bags that is far away from direct sunlight as this can cause leather to fade or dry out. Pick a place that also has good airflow and low humidity as high humidity can lead to mildew.

Now if you stay in a place with high humidity, add silica gel desiccant inside your bag storage area. These are available at craft stores or better yet, don’t throw the little bags that come with your vitamins! Reuse them for your luxury items.

2. STORE WITH A COVER AND AN INSIDE SUPPORT

Avoid dust by properly storing your bags inside dust bag covers. If you can’t find one, use a natural fibre pillowcase instead. Never store them in any kind of plastic or vinyl as this material traps wetness and eventually may cause molds.

To keep your bags in its proper shape, you can purchase purse inserts for support or you can also be economical by stuffing your bags with towels or tissue paper instead.
