.How to care of your handmade leather bags

by Lee Dey
Handmade women leather bags require specific actions for maintenance and care. Cleaning handmade leather bags, such as a handbag, must be based upon the condition and degree of detonation of the individual piece. Although the cleaning process can be done by oneself though specialty and fine leather cleaning product use, professional cleaning will ultimately provide the best results. If the wrong oil or product is used the leather can be permanently damaged. Be sure to research the best products to care for your item.
First,Wipe all dust and dirt from the leather bag with a soft cloth often. Dust should be removed daily or every other day.
Second,Dampen the soft cloth and then apply saddle soap, working it into the bag with a gentle, circular motion. Apply one squirt of saddle soap to the wash cloth. If using soap that is not in a bottle, use approximately a button-sized amount of soap for the bag. Saddle soap is a mild soap that is appropriate for most leathers. Test for discoloration problems in an unnoticeable area, such as the bottom of the bag, to ensure the soap will not ruin the dye. Typically, saddle soap will not be problematic for most leather bags. Wipe the excess soap away with a clean, damp cloth.
And than,Dry the leather completely after wiping it down. This prevents mold and mildew growth on the leather bag. Always keep the bag as dry as possible or dry it immediately after it has gotten wet.
Apply leather conditioner when the leather starts to feel hard, stiff or like it is going to crack. Leather conditioners are made specifically to improve the flexibility of the leather.
Store the leather bag in an area free of moisture. Water and heat are bad for leather.
I hope it will be useful for you to protect your unique leather bags.
