Maintaining the Handbag

Fabric/nylon bags

A fabric or nylon a handbag is likely to be more hard-wearing when it comes to cleaning it, but it is still important to abide by the instructions that came with the bag. In general, a fabric bag is easily cleaned using a mild soap or detergent and lukewarm water. If the more stubborn stains exist, it might be possible to eliminate those by gently scrubbing with a soft bristle brush. After cleaning, a fabric or nylon handbag should be left to air dry in a location that is able to receive a direct source of sunlight.

Suede/silk bags

Since a silk bag is susceptible to water stains and marks, it is generally advised against using these types of handbags when it is foggy, raining, or snowing. A silk or suede handbag will need to be seen in a gentle way to make sure the material isn’t worn or damaged. A specialist cleaner is often highly desirable for these materials to make certain any marks are cleaned in the right way, which should make sure the bag is less likely to be market or lose its shape.

Leather bags

In order to maintain the leather bags it helps to use a clean cloth to wipe away any dust or dirt on daily or weekly basis, depending on how often the handbag is likely to be used. On a monthly basis it will generally benefit to give the bag a full clean using a specialized leather clean installation, like saddle soap. After cleaning the entire surface of the handbag with the cleaning solution, you should allow it to dry in a shaded and dark location. It benefits to avoid air drying the leather bags in direct sunlight. And once dry, you might want to apply a leather protector or conditioner in order to maintain the softness and sheen of the material. Also, if you do have significant stains on the leather surface, you might want to look at using a chalk powder to help with removing those marks.
