We know you love your handbag to the core, but usage does leave an impact on them as they catch dust and get dirty.

No one likes to carry a designer handbag that looks dirty, hear from the experts at De Leather Craft on how to clean your handbags at home. This step-by-step guide will ensure you do it all right, so as not to damage your favorite handbag.

How to Clean Handbags at Home?

  • Empty the bag of its ingredients – We understand your bag is your storehouse and you have a lot of things in there, well the first step is to get rid of them all. Make sure you check all the pockets in your bag to ensure it is empty, so it is ready for the process of cleaning.
  • Clean it with a damp Cloth – The next step is to clean the bag of all the dust deposited with a damp cloth and make sure the cloth is not too wet as it can cause damage to the leather. So be gentle and use a cotton damp cloth to wipe off the immediate debris on the bag. That is for the outside but the inner linings are still filled with debris and dust, use a sponge soaked in warm water to get rid of the dirt inside the bag.
  • The Cleaning Process – Well leather has its properties, and we recommend you use the exact cleaning agents as recommended by the brand your premium bag belongs to, or get in touch with experts before giving your bag a chemical cleaning treatment, such as to make sure you don’t damage the bag. Most designer labels offer cleaning agents at their stores, and it is well advised to opt for them, rather than using mild soap, detergents, nail polish remover, lemon juice, alcohol, baking soda, and others. These work as a good agent that can work on genuine leather, but since most premium leather handbags are made of top grain, or full grain leather they are susceptible to damage from these agents.

If you are worried about the stains, well you need the help of professionals to get rid of those stains. We at De Leather Craft have the right leather craftsmen and cleaning agents to make sure you get rid of those permanent stains. Get in touch with our experts today.

  • Dry the leather – Use a dry soft towel and rub it on your handbag to ensure it sokes the extra water and prevents any further damage to your precious leather handbag, as water is an enemy of leather. You can use a cotton cloth to soak in the remaining moisture from the inner linings of your bag.
  • Conditioning your Leather – Once cleaned it is essential to apply good quality conditioner to your leather handbag. It prevents the leather from drying and cracking, which is a common cause of damage for most leather bags.
  • Keep it Aside – Keep your handbag aside for a day to make sure it gets dried and the effect of conditioner works its magic on your premium handbag. Once done you will have a great-looking new handbag to flaunt your fashion statement on every occasion.
