Ten Sure Ways For Bags To Last

Feb 29, 2008
Caring for your bag is as important as spending your money when you purchase them. Aftercare is keeping your articles in good condition and putting your money in good investment. It is applicable to any item to prolong its use and acquire the value for your dollar. Here a few tips on how to maintain your bag's new appearance even after years of use.

1. Always keep your bags inside their dust bags to cover them from exposure to dirt and dust. Putting your bags in its correct storage areas will ensure that bags are also kept away from unwanted household pets.

2. Always check your hands before you grab your bags and always do it by the handle. Your hands should be clean at all times when touching your bags. This prevents stains that might discolor your items.

3. When most of you may be in a rush after putting make-up on, make sure your hands are not soaked or stained with foundation or make up when you touch your bag. Cosmetics can cause hard to remove stains.

4. Leather bags are sometimes marked by points with sharp pointed objects leaving a certain part protruding from the rest. This is a venue for a possible wear and tear and can be avoided by organizing your ballpoint pens and other sharp-tipped objects in an organizer.

5. Check and strictly follow the washing instructions of your bags since this has been recommended to enjoy a longer use with the new look that your bag can retain.

6. If your bag's handle is a string of metal rings or links fitted into each other, remove them from their source if applicable and store the handle inside the bags. This will prevent any scratches to the sparkling surface of the handle.

7. For your expensive items, avoid bringing your bags to places where spillage, damage and scratches are highly susceptible; places like the supermarket or the food courts are examples of which.

8. Bag liners are also useful for ladies who frequently shift from one bag to another. This allows you to transfer your materials in one lift from one bag to another with all the ease. This is going to be helpful for the stylish and classy business woman.

9. Special care should be given for designer bags. As mentioned earlier, there are special cleaning instructions that can be found inside the package. Leather for example must be kept dry to avoid the growth of molds which causes leather to become powdery resulting to damage.

10. Prevention is better than cure as they would always say. So, do not store anything inside your bags that can potentially hurt their cloth. Sharp objects, colored pens, water, etc. should not be placed inside the bag unless that specific compartment is made for it.

Undertaking the challenges of cleaning is pretty easy. The principle is to keep your bags away from the source. If this cannot be avoided, then, clean accordingly and properly without imposing more damage to your items. Give your bags the extra care they truly deserve!
