In this part of the world, taking care of leather handbags is usually under-rated. Most ladies believe because the leather is great, they do not need to do so much to enjoy their handbags.
It is however not the truth. For leather bags, you have to take care of them just the way you do to your bone straight 😝, your make up items and many more that fall into that category.
Here are 3 things you do that make your leather bags go bad easily:
1. Not stuffing it up when storing it
Every lady has where they put their bags at the end of every day’s activities. Most ladies just dump them on their tables in their living rooms (I fall into that category even though I have a massive bag rack in my room…so you are not alone😊)
The correct way to actually store your bags, is by making it sit properly on a surface, in a cool area, like a wardrobe, with stuff in it to keep its shape. Do not squeeze it in-between other things. Do not over-stuff it also when carrying it around. Never hang your bags, that’s a no no. The handles will go weak after a while and it finally gives way.
2. Throwing your dust bags away
Years ago, when I buy my bags, one of the first things I do is to dispose the dust bag. I mean, the paper-like bag that is used to wrap the original bag that you paid for, after which a nylon is used to cover it up. Yes, that bag! Stop throwing them away. Dust bags help you keep your bags away from dusts and other unwanted moistures that could discolor your precious bag.
Stop throwing your dust bags away. If you buy a quality bag, it will definitely come with a dust bag. Watch out for it when buying your next bag. 😁 You can also ask your vendor not to forget to add the dust bag that came with the bag.
3. Using only one bag for a long time
Bag rotation is key. You can’t keep using just one bag and expect it to last forever. Sister, it will wear out. ‘The bag will tire’ 😂😂 You might not have a lot of bags but endeavor to always rotate the few bags that you have, so it can allow them rest at intervals. Yes, even leather bags need to rest.
TIP OF THE DAY: soft baby wipes can actually help with cleaning of your bags instead of using your dirty rag with water 😁😁😁 STOP IT.
