LEATHER CARE

Caring for Leather Laptop Handbags:


 1- Handle leather Laptop handbags with clean hands.

Leather bags are susceptible to absorbing grease and oils. Wipe the surface of a leather bag with a damp white cotton cloth, but be careful not to use too much water, because leather takes time to dry.


 2- Apply a cleaner specially made for leather.

This “soft soap” is applied using a circular motion and wiped off with a slightly damp cloth so as not to clog the pores of the fabric. Applying this soap one or two times a year should keep your leather handbag clean or as soon as you notice a mark or stain.


 3- Moisturize your bag with a leather conditioner to keep it supple.

Do not use a conditioner on patent leather.


 4- Stuff your unused bag with bubble wrap to restore and hold its shape.

Store your leather laptop bag in a dust bag or natural-fabric pillowcase. You can wrap the chrome or metallic parts in clean, acid-free tissue paper. If you’ve just cleaned the bag, allow it to air dry completely before storage. If you’re storing long-term, ease open the buckles and straps so impressions are released. This helps to avoid rubbing or permanent creases in unwanted areas.


    WARNING
  • Never allow water to soak into your bag. If the bag gets wet, do not use a hair dryer on it. Instead, absorb as much water as possible with a thick microfiber hand towel and allow the bag to air dry. Then, condition it again and store it.
  • Take extra special care of your bag to ensure you reduce unwanted normal wear and tear such as scratches and scuff marks. 
  • Waxes or silicone products clog up leather pores and may render them unable to be cleaned in the future.
