Keep Your Purses & Handbags Looking Fresh & New!
Purses & Handbags are one of the most popular items in every woman's closet. Not only are they popular but they can be very expensive, so caring for them should be a priority.
Here are some ways my daughter and I keep our purses looking fresh and new.
Whenever we aren't wearing our purses, they are stored in our closets. The way we store our purses is very important. We always stuff our purses with anything old such as an old towel or an old pillowcase depending on the size of the purse. (DO NOT OVERSTUFF) This way it keeps its shape. Next, we use a slightly damp soft cloth and wipe it down. If it's a leather purse we use a leather cleaner every once in a while, then we store it in a pillowcase to keep off any dust. Lastly, we store our purses on a flat surface as you also want to keep the shape of the handles.
2. Are you one of those people that rests your bag on the floor or wherever convenient at the time?
As a kid growing up I was always scared of leaving my bag or purse on the floor or ground because I had always heard adults talk about it being bad luck. Even though I don't believe that's true, I'm glad I was scared of doing so because my purses lasted forever and always looked new. Floors can be wet, dirty, or they may be near a heater which could potentially damage your handbag.
3. Be careful when putting anything liquid in your purse.
I always make sure the lid of my lipstick, mascara, pen, etc. is tightly secured before placing them in my purse just to ensure nothing will spill. Certain stains are sometimes almost impossible to remove.
