The Seven Tips on Protecting Your designer Bags

1. Invest In Maintenance Product

Leather bags should be cleaned with a leather cleaner or fabric your handbag is made of. Before using any cleaning product, make sure to read the instructions so you will not end up using a product on the fabric that can ruin your designer bag. Perform a patch test on a small portion of the bag to ensure no discoloration. 

2. Protect the Interior of Your Bag

Protect the interior of your designer bag from accidental spills, pen, or lipstick stains by using a purse organizer insert or cosmetic pouches to store or organize the items inside your bag. Purse organizers are a great way to keep everything in place and protect the interior from wear and tear. 

Here at Purse Bling, we have a selection of high-quality purse organizer inserts that fit any designer totes and handbag.

3. Maintain The Shape of Your Bag

There's nothing sadder than a sunken-in bag. So whether you're using or storing your favorite designer bag, it is essential to maintain its shape. In-store, you can keep the shape of your bag by using fillers such as pillow inserts, bubble wrap, or non-perfumed white tissue paper. 

When in use, you can maintain the shape of your bag by using a purse base shaper. This will keep your bag from sagging at the bottom. A base shaper is a plastic liner that allows you to put heavier or lumpier items into your bag without stretching the bottom. Base shapers are designed to fit comfortably at the bottom of your bag to help support and give it a straight line, no matter how much you put in it.
