Care and Cleaning

Cleaning Wipes:

Available handbag cleaning wipes are one of the easiest ways to wipe your bag. The wipes help you to get the day to day touch-ups and remove surface stains. The lighter stains can easily get rid off with just a single wipe. It will help you to retain the bag’s original appearance. 

Avoid Machine Wash:

However, the machine wash is not always harmful to your bag, but it's always advisable that you skip the machine wash if you can. The machine puts a lot of strain on the clothes making it non-worthy for our costly bags and clothes. And sometimes, the bag shrinks and loses their original shape. Washing a mochila bag in the machine totally depends upon the bag’s fabric and the resilience of the weaving density.

Handwash:

Hand wash is the best option to wash your clothes or bags. The manual wash helps you to keep control over the pressure area on the fabric. This will ensure whether you should rub more on the stain or just leave as it is.

Scrub with a soft brush:

If your stain is visible on a smaller area, you don’t need to wash the whole bag. It’s better to wash the dirty area only. Use a soft bristle brush and rub the area with detergent and brush.

Dry in Sunlight:

If you have enough time, then let the bag dry in sunlight, it's better than machine dry. Simply hang the bag in such a way that it retains its original shape. And make sure to not give it direct sunlight, instead dry them in a shade on a sunny hot day.

Dry Clean:

It’s important to understand that your handbag defines your personality. Don’t compromise on your handbag’s look. Get a dry clean, if needed. It's better to spend money rather than ruin your bag or its outlook.
