The One Thing You Should Never Do When Cleaning Your Leather Handbag

March 1, 2016 by Isabel Jones

When you’re looking to make a fashion splurge, a day-to-day leather handbag is always a good contender. In fact, bags are generally among the best fashion investments — they’re one of the few statement pieces that doesn’t wear down super quickly. Not to say that purses are easy to keep in top condition, they definitely aren’t, but they’re safer than say…. a pair of shoes (they live on the ground), or basically any clothing item (so many obstacles: food stains, sweat stains, weight shifts…). With a purse, you’re basically guaranteed to get your money’s worth — and THANK GOD, because they don’t run cheap! To get the most out of your leather bag, you should get in the habit of cleaning it regularly. But do not mistake ‘regularly’ for ‘casually.’ Your purse demands your full attention, here’s why…

There’s a lot of advice floating around about cleaning your leather handbag, and a lot of it contradicts advice found elsewhere! One of these hotly debated topics is the use of baby wipes. Some recommend you use them to wipe down leather exteriors, others warn against the method in CAPS LOCK. From what we’ve gathered, baby wipes should be okay as long as they’re alcohol-free. But I understand, this is your one and only and you don’t want to take any chances, so…. PATCH TEST! This is the best and really the only way to ensure any cleaning method will work. Test out the wipe, or leather conditioner (or whateva…) on a small swatch of leather that isn’t super visible (the bottom?), let it set for a day and see if it works for your baby! Happy Patch-testing!
