Product Care

The most important thing for maintaining of leather product is to use them with cautions. If you have a jacket or a handbag then pay attention to prevent it from being scratched or polluted. There is some general knowledge about how to keep up these things for you. Leather Expressions offers 15 tips and 7 notices on jackets or bags maintenance for our valued customers.

TIPS:

1. Zippers

Keep your zippers zipping. Rub natural beeswax along the teeth of the zipper to maintain your fasteners grip.

2. Leather

Moisturize your leather. Use a leather conditioning cream to stop cracks along the base of your designer jacket or handbag and extend the look of your purses handle.

3. Clean patent leather jacket or handbag

with Windex, vinegar diluted with water, spray glass cleaner, non-acetone polish remover and rubbing alcohol.

4. No Bag Stuffing

Carry necessities only. Leave the heavy loads to tractor trailers and U-haul. Your designer bag and its handles can be stretched beyond repair when you overload it with too many items. Overstuffing can weaken bag stitching as well.

5. Weather Protection

Rain guard not needed. Skip the silicone spray for weather protection. If you are caught in the rain, dab the splashes. Do not wipe the moisture away.

6. Suede

Suede is notoriously difficult to clean, so handle this precious leather with care. If your handbag has stiff leather handles, wrap them in cotton strips, to keep the leather away from the supple and fragile suede material.

7. Never use a treatment on suede designer bags.

A stiff suede brush can repair gentle scuffs, but leave the serious stains to professionals.

8. Beware of Beauty Products –

Handbags and beauty products do not mix. Cosmetics, perfume and lotions can cause bag discoloration. Products that beautify your face and body often seep into the skins of your bag and age the materials.

9. Dust Bags Needed

A designer handbag is sold with a dust bag to protect your investment from dust, dirt and debris. Do not have a fancy-flannel-drawstring-pouch to store your purse? A cotton pillowcase works just as well.

10. Patent Leather Handbags

Patent leather can be cleaned with a small dot of vinegar applied with a soft fabric. Isolate patent leather bags from dark colored bags to prevent discoloration.

11. Snakeskin and Exotic Handbags

Exotic handbags, like snakeskin handbags need special care. While you can clean these bags with a white cloth and a dab of water, serious repair should be left to the experts. In 2010, repairing a small snakeskin bag can cost you anywhere from 100 to 200 dollars.

12. Give a Handbag Break.

The everyday handbag is an oxymoron. Just like shoes, bags need a chance to breathe. Do not carry the same bag every day. Select three bags for work and rotate these three purses weekly.

13. Fabric Bags Need Love, Too.

Fabric bags attract dust more than any other material. Rub them down with a cotton cloth and lint roller before storage. Refrain from using fabric pens and cotton stain sprays for blemish removal. Serious stains require the work of a professional.

14. Proper Storage Techniques.

Retain the shape of your bag with acid free-tissue paper or bubble wrap. Keep bags upright in your closet on a shelf. Do not pile bags on top of each other in the bottom of your closet. Never stuff newspaper or colored tissue inside your handbags. The newsprint and colored ink will discolor the inside of your purse.

15. Small Bags

Wrap small bags in tissue paper and place in paper boxes for storage. Chain handles should be tucked in bags to prevent creases and broken links. Bags with beads, sequins, crystals and jeweled ornamentation should be stored separately.

NOTICES:

1.

Keep them dry, keep them some places which are cool and ventilated.

2.

Never be exposed to the sun; never be near to fire; never be washed by water; never be hit by sharp objects and never touch any chemical solvents.

3.

If your bag touches water carelessly, you need to clean the water with a soft cloth protecting from the folds left on the face of the bag caused by stain or watermark. So in this case you need to be very careful while you are carrying the corium bags outside during a rainy day.

4.

Shoe polish should be used with extreme caution on the corium bags.

5.

Scrub the corium bags with no water at all. And use the crude brush not the vegetable wax to polish the bags.

6.

Take good care of all the metal accessories on the bags, which are easily oxidized by moisture and high-salty environment.

7.

Attention: Pore and leather textile appearing on the corium bags are normal and natural in fact.
