Ladies we all do it drop nail polish, lipstick or have a dark color transfer onto our white or light colored leather handbags. After you have got over the shock of the accident lets think logically how we can solve this problem.
Firstly before we can clean our leather handbag we need to know a little bit about what leather is before we can put any products on our handbag to get a stain, dirt or color transfer out of the light colored leather.
Leather is a unique, natural product and should be treasured. Leather will improve in appearance with age and give lasting service if cared for properly.
What is leather?

1. Protection All leather should be protected before wearing. A good protector should also be applied regularly to help resist the effects of daily soiling. A protector can be used on most leather and suede items including shoes, bags and wallets. Remember to cover any embellishments such as metal and beading when spraying the protector. Spraying with the protector will help to prevent light color leathers absorbing unstable dye stuffs such as denim. Always take extra care when wearing light colored bags with dark denim.
2. Cleaning Most leather can be cleaned but it is important to find the correct cleaner for your leather item. You will need to visit your local shoe repairer to find the most suitable product. Always test it first and remember to protect your item again after cleaning.
3. Conditioning Leather conditioners/gels are only meant for occasional use. They contain fats or oils that help to lubricate the leather and replenish the suppleness. A conditioner can be used on most smooth leathers but should NOT be used on any suede, metallic, pearlized, embossed or patent leathers. Please test it first on an inconspicuous part of the leather before applying.
4. Polishing Polishing is a great way to remove fingerprints and dust from your leather items, particularly high shine leathers such as patent. We recommend using your cover bag to polish your item.
5. Storing We recommend storing your leather items in a cover bag when not in use. Never store any leather items in plastic as they cannot breathe and always store them in a cool, dry place away from heat.
