3 Tips For Cleaning Vintage Leather Handbags

Your handbag is one of those timeless pieces that will never go out of style. If you’re like me, it’s been a while since you’ve cleaned your vintage leather handbag and now they’re covered in dust and grime. If the bag is no longer usable and it’s too costly to repair, we can still save this piece for future generations by cleaning them up. Here are three ways to clean your leather handbag: If your vintage leather handbag is in dire need of cleaning, you can save it by following these tips for cleaning a vintage leather handbag. First, remove as many as possible, as the more dirt and stains that are removed from the surface, the better. Next, you’ll want to use a gentle soap or a wet paper towel to clean the surface of the purse before thoroughly rubbing it down with a soft cloth. Finally, spray the bag with a water-based cleaner and allow it to dry completely before replacing any items inside.

 

How To Remove Scents From Your Leather Bag

I was at a vintage store recently and came across these leather handbags. They were so beautiful! But I knew if I bought them, the leather would sit there for years and I’d have a difficult time getting rid of the smell. The most common odor in old leather bags is sweat. When you think about it, that makes sense. After all, the bag may have been stored for years in an attic or closet without airflow. Leather bags tend to be porous; this means that they absorb the scents of their surroundings. It’s not unusual for people’s hands to smell like cigarette smoke when they’re carrying their favorite vintage handbag. To remove the scent of cigarette smoke from your handbag, first blot the interior with a paper towel dipped in ammonia and water mixture.

 

What To Do When You Can’t Remove Smell From Your Leather Bag

Sometimes leather bags can start looking a little dirty or smelly. If your handbag is a vintage piece, you probably want to keep it that way. So how do you clean a vintage leather bag without ruining the look? Here are three tips for cleaning old leather bags: When you have a leather purse or bag that smells, one of the best things to do is take a baking soda bath. This will help neutralize odors. Another option is to use white vinegar. Just pour some on the outside of the bag and wipe them off with a microfiber cloth.
