to make it last forever:
Protect from the first day
Whenever we buy something new, we always want to keep it in perfect condition and the best place to avoid destruction. So, applying a skin-protective cream after carrying a leather bag back home is an effective way of blocking stains and protecting the leather surface from damage.
In protecting leather bags, regular cleaning is a must. For quick cleaning, using a wet cloth is enough. But to keep your leather bag in good condition, it usually needs to be cleaned more thoroughly by a professional or use specialist cleaning products every 2-3 months.
Use specialist cleaners
Never use baby wipes, vinegar or other home remedies for cleaning bags. Many of these products contain chemicals and substances that can cause dryness or loss of color in leather bags.
Keep the bag while it’s not in use
Use a dust bag to prevent dust buildup and also prevent accidental collisions when the bag is not in use. If you do not have a dust bag, pillowcases can be a substitute alternative.
Keep the bag by filling it
When not in use, fill your bag with bubble wrap or even some unused clothing to keep the shape perfect.
Avoid holding the handles frequently
It sounds a bit odd, but in fact natural oils from skin or oil from moisturizer can slowly damage the leather and cause it to discolor. So try to hold the bag more often on your arm.
Avoid wearing a light-colored bag with new denim jeans
Dye transfer is one of the most difficult stains to remove if it’s attached to a leather bag. One of the most common causes is wearing new denim jeans with light-colored bags. Avoid dye transfers on your leather bag by washing new jeans before wearing them.
Make sure the lid is on!
It’s not a secret that we often have leaky pens, spilled water bottles and broken make up tools inside the bag. When we're in the hurry, we unconsciously throw everything into the bag and forget to check if everything is closed properly. Take your time to put down stationery, makeup tools and water bottles and make sure that all the items are sealed properly.
Be careful where you place your bag
To prevent fading color and damage to the leather bag, avoid putting the bag in hot place or exposed to the sun directly. Heat can cause the leather dry to crack. The best way to prevent drying is by cleaning and protecting bags every 2-3 months. Also apply a protective cream for maximum results.
Use the hook on the clutch

Nowadays not only women who wear it, but men also already love this little bag. To keep the clutch safe from wet tables and dirty floors, you can use a small hook as a clutch hanger on a desk or closet.
