It is so easy to just drop a handbag down anywhere but that encourages germs and dirt. One super sanitizing tip for keeping a designer handbag in pristine condition is to avoid placing it on the floor anywhere, ever.

Try these alternatives instead:
  • At a restaurant, place the handbag on another chair.
  • In a public bathroom, hang it on the doorknob or coat hook. 
  • At the gym keep it in the locker on a hanger instead of carrying it around the facilities or placing it on the floor.
  • At home, have a hook placed up and store your bag there.
  • Don’t place a handbag on kitchen countertops, restaurant and dinner tables or anywhere a person comes in contact with general eating and cooking environments.
  • A handbag is not a storage unit for unwrapped food or previously opened liquids. Unsuspecting company in the form of bacteria will find its way in.

Leather is one of the strongest materials used in designer handbags but dirt and grime can affect its beauty to some extent.

  • Proper care is required to keep the elegance of the designer handbag long-lasting.
  • To make it look as good as new needs a little professional attention too. Take the handbag to a dry cleaner that specializes in leather cleaning.
  • Clean and recondition leather designer leather purses at least twice a year, and, when not in use, put them in the cloth bags for protection against dust and grime.

Handbags are necessary, not only as a fashion piece, but for storing items. Keep a leather handbag in the best of shape and germfree.
