Caring for Genuine Leather Handbags
HandbagDistributor.com, a leading online wholesale handbag supplier, offers these handy tips on caring for genuine leather handbags, which you can offer to customers who purchase genuine cowhide leather handbags from you.
First, remind customers that proper care prevents leather from drying out and cracking and protects it from excessive moisture that can cause the leather to swell or mildew.
Instruct customers to handle leather handbags with clean hands and apply cleaners made especially for leather. Apply the soft soap in a circular motion and wipe it off with a damp cloth to avoid clogging the pores of the leather. Applying soap once or twice a year should keep leather handbags clean.
Remove stains as soon as they're noticed. Organic stains can be removed with chalk powder. Let it sit on the stain overnight and wipe it off with a clean cloth.
You can also provide customers with a helpful note on the cleaning products used for leather handbags. Synthetic and petroleum-based cleaning products should be avoided, because they can cause drying, fading or cracking. A delicate soap like baby wash works best and should be diluted with water and sprayed onto a towel before stroking it onto the leather bag.
Stuff your leather bag with bubble wrap to restore and hold its shape. Store leather bags in a dust bag or pillow case and wrap the chrome or metallic parts in clean, acid free tissue paper. If the bag has just been cleaned, allow it to dry before storage and ease open the buckles and straps.
