How to Clean Leather Bags or Purses?
Sep 04, 2018

Leather bags and purses are very susceptible to stains and spots as they’re used outdoors frequently and often placed on the floor. Many people will simply use a regular soap or detergent to tackle the stains, but this is not a good idea – soap residue left on the leather can prevent the material from breathing, causing dry patches and cracking. Instead, follow these handy tips when you’re cleaning your leather bags or purses, testing these methods on a small area of your bag or purse first to make sure that it doesn’t damage your item.


·         Mix 1 part mild soap – such as a facial soap or very mild clothes detergent – with 8 parts water. It’s best to use bottled or distilled water, if possible, to avoid any particles in tap water.


·         Pour the mixture into a spray bottle and spray onto a sturdy cloth or sponge, preferably a microfiber cloth. Never spray directly onto the leather as this could cause over saturation.


·         Gently wipe the stain, going with (rather than against) the grain of the leather.


·        Once the stain has dissolved, leave the bag or purse to dry naturally, away from direct sunlight.


·        After drying, wipe with a pea-sized amount of leather moisturizer to protect the material.
