p>em>Maintaining our favorite bags can be a real headache with all the tips that appear. /em>/p> p>em>So I compiled the ones I tested, which really worked on my own bags.../em>/p> p> /p> p>strong>How do I keep my bag in shape? /strong>/p> p>To keep your bag in very good condition throughout its use, THE TIP is to put back the original padding in the bag so that it keeps its shape, by putting it in its dustbag (protection against the sun and dust). /p> p> /p> p> /p> p>strong>How do I maintain it on a daily basis? /strong>/p> p>What will protect your bag on a daily basis is the regular waterproofing of the leather with special milk. /p> p> /p> p>Like your shoes, the more regularly you use your bag, the more regularly it should be waterproofed. Every 3-4 weeks is enough for regular use. /p> p>Special milk maintenance can be done only every 6 to 12 months. More is not necessary, except for very dry climates./p> p> /p> p>em>But what brand is recommended? /em>/p> p>To respect the leather, avoid paraffin/silicone products that will prevent the leather from breathing. /p> p>You can use Saphir or Briochin products./p> div style="text-align: left;"> img src="" alt="float: none;">img src="" width="160x160" height="160x160" style="float: none;"> /div> div style="text-align: left;"> meta charset="utf-8"> p> /p> p> /p> p>strong>My bag has a stain on it, I do what? /strong>/p> meta charset="utf-8"> p>The more well maintained and nourished the bag will be, the less it will absorb the liquids that fall on it. /p> meta charset="utf-8"> p>It is highly recommended to test the mixture on an invisible area, as each leather is unique and reacts differently to mixtures. /p> p>It is of course necessary to cream and waterproof your bag after cleaning it. /p> p> /p> p>em>Grease... One of our biggest fears when the leather is marked... /em>/p> p>Notice it right away? Immediately stamp with a sopalin without pressing. /p> p>2 flagship products are proven with grease stains. Sommières Earth and... talc! /p> p>Generously sprinkle the stain and surroundings with it, leave to soak for a few hours, then scrub with a soft brush. If the stain is old, you can try to warm the leather (and the task) with a hairdryer, and repeat the operation. /p> p>Do not hesitate to repeat the operation as much as necessary to make it disappear at best. /p> p> img src="" width="160x160" height="160x160" style="float: none;"> img src="" width="160x160" height="160x160" style="float: none;">/p> p> /p> p>em>My pen stained my bag.../em>/p> p>Bring warm milk, 90° alcohol, and a clean white cloth (of course dry...)/p> p>Stamp the stain with the mixture, and wipe as the stain thins out. /p> p>Do not hesitate to repeat the operation as necessary, taking your time. /p> p> img src="" width="160x160" height="160x160" style="float: none;"> /p> p> /p> p>em>Wine spilled on my bag.../em>/p> p>The stain is still wet? Immediately dry with absorbent paper. /p> p>Then combine cleansing milk with a mixture of half water and half alcohol at 70°. Carefully stamp until the stain disappears. /p> p>The stain is dry? Mix a few drops of alcohol at 70° with clay stone, and rub the stain gently.

The oil will deeply nourish the leather, and will give it a certain flexibility. /p> p> /p> p>strong>Last but not least advice.... /strong>/p> p>If you want to keep your bag or small leather goods for a long time, be careful not to overload them.../p> p>Too much will deform them in the long term, and especially weaken the hook points (handles, shoulder straps, zips,...). /p> p>Don’t forget, too much is not good for your back either.
