Mistakes quickly ruin branded bags
Most designer handbags can last for decades. If it fails too quickly, it’s the user’s fault.
Here are 7 common user mistakes that cause branded bags to fail quickly.
1. Do not wash after use.
The first and perhaps most important step in bag care is cleaning. After each use, it must be cleaned inside and out. If the bag is leather, wipe the outside with a damp cloth or baby wipe (alcohol free) and then dry with a dry cloth.
For untreated leather and suede lines, wipe off the dust with a dry cloth. Inside, use a cloth roller or handheld vacuum to get into small areas.
2. How to keep the shape of the bag
Few people pay attention to maintaining the shape of the bag, but this is very important when you have an expensive bag. Fill the bag with paper or cotton, remember never to use newspaper as the ink may leak and stain the inner lining.
Putting the paper in an empty bag will keep its shape, but make sure there is enough space. Too much padding can change the shape of the pouch and stretch the skin.
3. Without outer protection bag
It is best to store the bag in the original packaging or bag. However, if you are short on storage space, spray the bag to protect it from light and moisture to keep it from discoloring over time, especially if exposed to light for a long time. If you don’t have a dust bag, a cotton shirt will work, too.
4. Hanging pocket
Bag straps and handles are not designed to hang from hooks or nails for long periods of time. You’ll ruin your bag if you hang around like that. Over time, the bag loses its shape.
Store the bag on a flat surface on a shelf or in a drawer.
5. Dry bag
The desiccant bags included in the scope of delivery are not to be thrown away. It is a lifesaver to prevent your leather bags from rusting.
If the bag gets moldy, wipe it down with a soft, dry cloth and leave it outside for a day. If that doesn’t work, take it to a professional for a deep cleaning.
6. Deploy the bag
It is necessary to remove the bag from the box or anther once a month so that it can breathe air. When you take it out, remember to check the bag again to make sure it’s free of mold.
7. Wrap the bag parts
Chain straps, rivets and shoelaces can damage the leather parts of the bag and leave marks and scratches. When not in use, please wrap the strap and zipper with metal. At the same time, avoid placing bags close to each other, as the details of one bag may collide and damage another bag.
