Handbag Cleaning: Our Process


Cleaning a handbag must be done carefully and delicately. There are many different types of leather and ways in which it is dyed or treated.

Our first step is to determine the type of leather and then formulate the best cleaning technique to suit it. We then test this method in an inconspicuous area before carefully cleaning the full bag.

Not forgetting the interior of the bag, which a recent study found contains more bacteria than the average toilet! We will thoroughly clean the interior using anti-bacterial products to make sure your bag is clean and fresh.

Handbag Cleaning

 

We have developed our own range of specialist cleaning products that we use to professionally clean all types of handbags. Cleaning a handbag isn't just giving it a good scrub! It's important to identify the material it is made from and then select the most appropriate and safe to use product to clean the bag.

When we clean a bag we deep clean the exterior making sure to clean into all folds and creases.

We clean all types of leather, suede, nubuck, fabric, and canvas.

Exotic Leather Cleaning

 

Exotic leathers are the most precious and delicate leathers a bag is made from. We have a specialist team at our HQ who clean all Exotic Leather Handbags as it is important that such an expensive item is treated by our most skilled and experienced staff.

We work daily on bags made from Crocodile, Ostrich and Snakeskin and have specialist techniques to clean and buff the leather depending on the finishing technique used by the designer.

Ink Stain Removal

 

Unfortunately this does happen! It can either be a pen marking the leather (we once had a customer whose child wrote all over her handbag!) and the more drastic stain is where a fountain pen leaks inside the bag causing a stain to appear on the outside.

Whatever the scenario we have a range of specialist ink removers that we can use to gently remove the stain from your handbag.

We can remove ink stains from all types of leather with 100% success. The results on Suede and Fabric vary.

Dye Transfer Stains

 

Typically these are caused by new jeans staining a white or light coloured handbag! But the cause can be any material transferring dye onto your bag.

We have specialist products to remove the dye transfer, and even better we'll apply a product afterwards to stop it staining the leather again!

Water Stains

 

One of the most common types of staining on handbags s caused by water, drinks or other liquids. Leather Handbags can soak these stains up like a sponge leaving a nasty mark!

We have specialist products to help remove the stain and after using them we'll even-out the colour using our restoration techniques.

Once the stain has been removed, we'd then protect the leather to help it repel all liquid staining.

Mould Removal

 

Some handbags do get mouldy! Generally down to being incorrectly stored, but we have seen instances of mould caused by water leaks and even a bag left out in a field!

We start by thoroughly cleaning the bag to remove all the dirt and excess mould. When the bag looks clean, we then apply a specialist mould treatment that kills the mould spores to prevent them from re-occurring.

We offer this treatment to some major UK retailers whose merchandise sometimes develops mould on transit from Asia into the UK.

Interior Cleaning

 

If the outside of your bag needs cleaning then chances are the interior has developed a few marks and stains too. We regularly clean stains from pens, make-up, food and other everyday items from the inside of bags.

Other more unusual stains we've cleaned have been cooking oil, green tea and we even had one customer who had a full pint of beer dropped into her bag!

Handbag Protection

 

From day one you should protect your Handbag. You can do this yourself using one of our Handbag Protectors or, we can apply it professionally for you. Once protected, your bag will repel all liquid and oil based staining, dye transfer for even ink!

Protection also helps to keep the bag cleaner, keeping it better condition for longer.
