Tip of the Month
How to remove food and blood from leather purses

You will need cream of tartar, lemon, a rag, towel and soap. Make a paste of one part cream of tartar to one part lemon juice. Rub paste on the stain and leave it on for 10 minutes. Remove the paste with a damp rag and moisturizing soap, as described above for general cleaning. Buff the leather dry with a soft cloth or towel.

Leather Care Suggestions:

  1. Keep your leather purse away from excessive moisture or water.
  2. Keep your your leather handbag away from direct sunlight. The sun will dry the leather and cause it to fade and crack.
  3. Baby wipes or any other alkaline cleaner will damage your leather purse.
  4. Use a non-colored sponge to clean your leather purse otherwise the dye may rub off the colored sponge.
  5. Harsh cleaners or abrasive cleansers can damage the surface of your leather purse.
  6. What's good for the car isn't necessarily good for your leather bag. Do not use oils (such as mink oil), polish, or any product containing waxes or silicone (including many car care products)may damage the leather and leave it feeling sticky.
  7. Using saddle soap, alcohol, varnish, or ammonia-based cleaners (i.e. Windex) or bleach on leather may be too harsh, causing serious damage or discoloration.
  8. Leather needs an occasional replenishment and reconditioning. You might try mixing 1 part distilled white vinegar with 2 parts linseed oil. Shake well and apply to leather in circular motion. Let sit for about 10 minutes, then buff with a soft cloth. A second buffing may be necessary.
  9. If you have any doubt as to the proper way to clean your leather purse, simply call or ship your leather to the address below.
