Luke warm water and soap
The best way to get rid of dirt on the outside of your handbag mix a little amount of liquid soap into lukewarm water and use the mixture with a soft damp cloth. Use this hack once a week to keep your bag free of any dust.
Keeping it stuffed while not using
When you are not using your handbag for a long-time, keep it stuffed with papers, or covers or anything that you feel will help in retaining its shape. We often tend to throw things away without thinking about aftercare, leather handbags, if kept loosely for a long time, tend to lose their original shape which affects their looking.
Rubbing Alcohol or Nail Polish Remover
Ink stains and swabs are a common problem that almost we all have dealt with. No matter how hard you try, these stains are so stubborn that they refuse to leave from your lovely handbag. Well, now all you need to do is dip a cotton ball in nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol and try cleaning the stain. It will come off very easily.
Direct Sunlight is a BIG NO!
One of the most important things about taking care of your leather handbag is ensuring that it is not directly exposed to the sunlight for a long time. Long exposure to direct sunlight can cause the leather to damage and the color to fade.
Baking Soda or Cornstarch
Oil stains or say grease stains are even worse then the ink ones and no matter what you try, they are always going to leave a mark. Even if you manage to get the stain off, it will leave a foul smell in the bag. In such cases always use baking soda or corn starch. Rub either of the things with a damp cloth on the stain let it sit overnight and then wipe it off with a soft cloth. To get rid of the smell put baking powder in your bag, and leave it overnight. Baking powder will absorb all the unwanted smell.
