How to Care for Your Personalized Leather Tote Bags

Posted by Bryan on 5/13/2013 to Leather
Personalized leather tote bags are tricky. Beautiful and pretty durable, custom leather tote bags can prevent unique challenges when attempting to maintain, as opposed to modern fabrics and materials.

The first step to maintaining custom leather tote bags' like-new look is to, whenever possible, handle your bag with clean hands. Leather tends to absorb oil, grease, and whatever else you might have on you, so to keep your bag looking great, wipe it off with a damp cloth, but try not to get it too wet as it will take some time to dry.

You can also use specially made cleaners that, when applied a few times a year, should keep the bag in great condition. Just remember to test any untried cleaners on a non-visible area first, to ensure color steadfastness.

Leather conditioners will help keep the leather soft and supple, but be sure to read the directions and, as always, test untried materials on non-visible areas.

The best maintenance tip is to always remove a stain or smudge as soon as you can using a damp cloth, your preferred cleaner, or, you can also use crushed white chalk to remove organic stains such as food and blood. Rub it into the stain and let it sit overnight, then remove with a damp cloth.

It is just as important to keep the inside clean. Since our customized tote bags' leather is porous, stains and leaks on the inside can transfer to the outside! Keep cosmetics, liquids, and pens inside a sealed zip-lock bag. This will prevent spills and help keep your bag organized as well.

With a little preventive maintenance and care your bag can stay just as beautiful as the day you bought it for years to come.
