Maintain a separate purse for makeup
Always keep makeup, including lip balm, in a separate purse or storage bag. Makeup may leak, melt, or spill inside your purse, causing the lining to deteriorate. Keep any objects that could create a mess in a compact cosmetic bag. Additionally, gum, toothpaste, lotion, medication, and even essential oils may spill or discolor the interior of your bag. These goods should be kept in a leak-proof pouch.
Hire a Professional to Clean your Leather Bags
When properly maintained, well-made leather bags last for years. If your leather purse is beginning to show signs of wear or tear or requires a touch-up, try taking it to a professional cleaner. For an expensive purse, the cost of professional cleaning is justified if you want to extend the life of your bag by another year or two.
Avoid Scratches by Hanging your Bag or opting for a Footed Bag
When you’re out and about, hang your purse from a hook rather than letting it fall to the floor. There are affordable purse hooks that fold up and fit within your bag. Always hang your bag in the restroom and do not leave it on the germ-ridden floor. Lastly, reduce your load and purge your purse. You’ll feel more organized and relaxed, and your back and neck will appreciate it too!
