Owning a designer handbag is an investment. Therefore, it is important also know how to clean, care and store the handbag correctly.


There is always loose lint or dirt inside your handbag, and my best advice is to use a vacuum cleaner. Make sure you vacuum the lint or dirt gently and carefully, and not use excessive force. You can also use a lint roller to clean the interior.

In case of a stain in the lining or outer leather, try the Collonil Bamboo lotion. By following the instructions, it is safe to use for smooth leather and suede as well as for textile material combinations. 

You can also try Collonil Shampoo, 1909 leather cream or Woly Perfect gel depending on the leather and stain.

Once the surface is clean, the next step is to protect the leather. It is vital to protect the leather from dirt and water stains after each cleaning time. The used product depends on the material, but here is two of the most used products: 

Collonil Protect & Care is an organic product for waterproofing, providing a lasting an effective protection to your handbag’s leather. This product is safe to use indoors. 

Carbon Protecting Spray is another aerosol free protecting spray in the web store. It provides effective and long lasting protection for all materials - leather, suede, nubuck and textiles. It protects from dirt and moisture by forming an invisible and breathable but strong surface

It is important to care for the handbag’s leather, to keep it soft and healthy.

One of my favorites is Collonil 1909 leather cream, which has a handy sponge on to ease the application. It delivers gentle cleansing, whilst giving the leather a brilliant shine. Revives tired leather for an exquisite look and feel.

Collonil 1909 leather lotion is a high quality lotion enriched with aloe and precious oils. This can be applied to the surface with a Collonil polishing cloth.
