The Ultimate Guide to Cleaning Your Leather Bag

The Ultimate Guide to Cleaning Your Leather Bag

Leather bags are a beautiful, unique addition to your wardrobe that can be a real point of pride for you or your significant other. They’re also expensive! So when it comes to caring for your leather bag, you want to make sure that you know what you’re doing and take appropriate steps to maintain the care of it. In this article, we’ll give you the low-down on how to clean your leather bag without using a leather cleaner. undefined

How to Clean Your Leather Bag without Leather Cleaner

Leather is a particularly hard material to clean. It’s often best to invest in good quality leather cleaner made specifically for cleaning your leather bag, but if you’re on a budget, there are some ways that you can clean your leather bag without the need for an expensive cleaner. One way is by using baking soda and water. Add two tablespoons of baking soda to one gallon of warm water and mix well before applying the mixture to your bag. Cleaning your leather bag can be a bit tricky and there really aren’t any quick and easy methods for cleaning. One way to clean your bag without using leather cleaner is with white vinegar and water. The mixture will help remove dirt and stains while giving your bag a nice shine.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is a great way to keep any leather bag in good condition. It is also a well-known fact that baking soda has many other uses in the home, such as removing stains from clothes and removing odors from carpets when properly combined with vinegar. For many bags, baking soda is one of the best cleaning methods for leather. Be sure to sprinkle the baking soda on a cloth and rub it into the bag in circular motions. Let it sit for about 30 minutes before washing it with water and soap.


Vinegar is a standard item that can be found in most households. It is made from fermented fruit sugars and has antimicrobial properties that help with removing harmful bacteria. It also helps with neutralizing odors, which can be carried on the leather of your bag. Vinegar is one of the best cleaning agents you can use when it comes to leather. It works by breaking down the protein in the fibers, leaving them easy to wipe away. It’s also a great way to kill bacteria and fungus in your bag, so next time you take it with you on a trip, keep this in mind.

Dry Brushing

Dry Brushing is the best way to remove dust and dirt from your leather. It also helps loosen any hardened stains that may have formed on your bag, so it feels like new. A soft bristle brush with natural bristles works best for this job. To keep your leather bag from aging, dry brushing is a wonderful way to prevent the buildup of unsightly cracks and stains. Use a soft brush and a bit of water to clean the entire surface of the bag. Start at the top and work your way down.
