How to Protect Your Leather Bag from Water?

How to Protect Your Leather Bag from Water?

It is important to maintain the health and beauty of a leather bag. Check out this guide to learn what you can do to keep it looking fresh and new, especially after an unfortunate accident with water spilled all over it! undefined Browsing the countless ways to prepare for rain that don’t require an astronaut suit/umbrella, I came across this article that offers some unique insight into keeping your leather lookin’ fresh. While the review points out it’s not guaranteed, this method does seem surprisingly effective!

How Does Water Damage Leather Bags?

The first thing you need to be aware of is that water never interacts with the leather itself. Leather has kept its drag coefficient constant for decades, which puts it in the range of easy-to-propel water droplets. The chemical reactions between surface flourishes and organic substances can cause damage to your bag, but this is either avoided by using a suitable cleaner or delayed by applying a wax protection agent.

DIY: 3 ways to clean and protect your leather bag

Most leathers nowadays will react negatively to water and therefore it’s really important to take care of your wonderful things so you don’t need to buy a new one anytime soon.

How To Protect Your Leather Bag?

Leather should be taken care of using the best quality oils. This should be done once or twice a year depending on how often you use your bag. You can use neatsfoot oil, famous for its leather softening properties. Apply to the oiled surface with a clean cloth, let it soak in then rub to distribute evenly. You can protect your leather bag from water damage with a good weatherproofing spray. That way, the bag’s color will stay the same quality as you use it. It is also important to wax your leather regularly because the oils in the body are what “feed” the leather so they moisturize it and negate water damage. Some people say you need to sun dry your leather regularly too so that rain doesn’t penetrate into the inner fibers.

Concerns of Wearing a Leather Bag in the Rain

The care instructions provided with your bag will tell you if it can handle water. If not, avoid wearing your bag in the rain or other wet weather. This is important because moisture in an unprotected area will rob dye from the leather, resulting in premature aging and cracking of the skin. To protect the leather, apply a clear water-resistant spray before exposing it to moisture.

Conclusion

To protect leather bags from water and help them age beautifully, remember that you can do a few simple things: just clean and condition your bag with Camellia oil after every use, never put it away while damp, and place soft-cashmere gloves in the bottom of the bag. Your reward for diligence will be an heirloom that lasts for decades.
