Posted by ESIN AKAN
Summer party bags are some of the most stylish bags you will ever find. Normally they are small and made of many different materials, such as cotton, leather among others. They also come in different designs, such as crochet and sometimes they are hand woven. Summer is when we make some of the most memorable moments in our lives. Things as little as handbags act as constant reminders of those moments. Here are some tips to make sure your expensive stylish and favorite party bags will last for years and years.
- Protect the material
The first step towards taking care of the material is identifying the material of the bag. Once you identify it, find out its biggest threats. The final step is to counter the threats so that you are able to protect your handbags properly. For instance, the biggest threat of leather material is moisture. In order to prevent the moisture from ruining your bag, apply some suede and keep the bag in a dry place.
- Protect the bag’s lining
To ensure that your bag lasts for a long time, ensure you protect the lining well. Protect the lining from sharp objects, ink leaks and liquids since they may rip or even discolor your lining. Use a handbag organizer and ensure your cosmetics, any sharp objects and pens are kept in a pouch before placing them in your bags.
- Constantly maintain the metal parts
Metal parts of the bags are mostly colored and made of metal. Make sure you protect the metal parts from getting scratched, leaving the painting ruined. Try to handle them with care or be careful that they do not get hit, as they can break down. Also protect them from ripping the bag’s material.
- Clean off stain immediately
In case you accidentally stain your bag, make sure you clean it up immediately before it dries up. You can accidentally stain your bag in many ways e.g. food stain, ink stains or even oil stain. Remember, each stain has a special method of cleaning them.
- Regularly clean your bag
After each use, make a point of cleaning the bag. However, cleaning depends on the material of the bag. Nylon and cotton can be washed in water while leather needs a regular wipe with wet cloth.Moreover, at times, take it to a specialist for proper cleaning. After cleaning, make sure you hang it under the sun to dry out completely.
- Store the bag well
When not using the bag, make sure you place it in an upright position in a dry place. Put some cloth or something that will help keep the bag in shape and then close it. Don’t place the bag on the floor, as it will accumulate dust and moisture.
- Don’t overload your bag
When using the bag, make sure you load it with a weight that it can hold; otherwise the holding straps can tear off. Also, filling the bag excessively may damage the zipper’s function.
