Why? Because a beautiful bag makes a beautiful day! :) Plus, your investment piece deserves to be treated with love and care. Maintenance of your bags is so crucial if you want to enjoy them for as long as possible.
Here, I've rounded up the best bag care products that you need to ensure your bags will last for years;
1. Bag stuffers
Why you need it: Another firm favorite, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM needs a Quilted Bag Stuffer to maintain and keep it in tiptop shape, just the way it was the first time I purchased it.
It's also durable and machine washable. So fill your bag with stuffer to prevent sagging and wrinkling of your bags!
2. Dust bags with identification slot
Why you need it: To protect it from dust and dirt. Aside from giving your bag a brisk sweep with a soft dry cloth, you should also store it properly to make sure that your precious bags and satchels are kept in mint condition for years to come.
3. Handle wraps
Why you need it: It is made of satin material and with lots of designs to choose from, it's very posh. (HA.) These are hand wraps that pack a lot of cool because the designs are anything but ordinary.
Note the untreated leather handles and trimmings and by using handle wraps, you can preserve the appearance of your bag while giving your bag a new stylish look.
Why you need it: Yes, leather is permeable but no, it can never be entirely waterproof, so avoid toting your favorite Givenchy or Birkin in bad weather. Say, if you own a croc Hermès Birkin which is made from crocodile skin and is particularly susceptible to water damage, it should ideally be maintained and protected by bag raincoats.
5. Bag shaper
Why you need it: It prevents your bag to sagginess and provides form to your luxury bags. Made with lightweight but heavy duty material, it also keeps your bag in proper form so they appear new. Plus, the color will not transfer to your bags, and it protects the interior of your bags from stains (such as ballpen marks, make up stains etc).
Why you need it: Put packets of silica gel so it doesn't get damp and to keep your bags in a reduced moisture environment. It also prevents your leather goods from molds and odor. Also, avoid leaving your bag in direct sunlight, which may change the color of your bag.
I also got this weekender bag which I love because you know, moms have too much stuff. It's like a carry all for traveling or trips to the gym. It is my new best friend, but I always make sure not to wear it out. Because, rotation is key. Everyday use of your bag will wear it out, so it's good to switch things up every month. Plus, some celebrities and fashion bloggers have also been spotted using this bag.
Remember that bag care products are always a solid investment because, say, for the very rare and intense natural disaster, they will surely stand the test of time and that makes it a no brainer. Well, even the most bag-crazy among us have to admit it.
