5 ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR YOUR HANDBAG CARE

5 Tips To Take Care Of Your Handbag

We know how much time, energy and money you invested in acquiring that perfect handbag.
Women are more willing to splurge on a beautiful designer handbag than on any other
fashion ensemble, justifying the purchase by saying, “this one will surely last me for years,”
which brings us to today’s subject: learning how to preserve and properly care for these
bags. So, here I’m sharing 5 simple tips I have to maintain the pristine quality of your purse.
1. Use bag cleaning products
Yes, there are products you can use to take care of your bags, Products like leather gels,
shine sprays etc. do wonders maintaining the look of your bag. Also inculcate a habit to wipe
your bag once in a while, so that the stains don’t become permanent, or to just maintain that
newly bought shine. A personal advice would be to first do a small patch test, to make sure
that it doesn’t cause discoloration.
2. Stuff the bags to retain its shape
I’m really fond of large bags, but that also means that it’ll take a lot more care than the small
ones. Apart from maintaining its material and shine, it’s very important to retain the shape of
the bag. I like to stuff a sweater or any fluffy cloth into my larger purses to maintain its
shape. Crushed paper or crumpled newspaper also works but I prefer staying eco-friendly
and use a cloth instead
3. Store your bags in a dust bag
All bag brands usually give a dust bag along with their bags– don’t throw it away, keep them!
They’re great for protecting your bags when you’re not using them. I make it a point to store
all my bags right from a wallet to a clutch to the larger handbags in a dust bag, when not in
use.
4. Use a zipper pouch for your vanity needs.
Small zipper pouches are a blessing to store all your vanity needs like foundations, sanitizers,
lip gloss etc. There have been so many instances where these vanity products have leaked out
in my bag, making it messy and painful task to clean the bag. Hence, I came up with this idea
to store all these vanity needs in a zipper pouch making it a lot more convenient and mess
free.
5. Proper Storage
Handbags are best stored upright on shelves. If shelving is not an option, try a
cupboard or armoire. Pop handbags with dust bag on into your cupboard laying them
one over the other. Small clutches and purses for occasional wear can be stored in a
drawer neatly. A handbag rack is another best storage option if you have the space
for it.
And there it sums up, the 5 essential tips for your handbag care! Bags and purses are so
important to give your outfit a complete look and it’s definitely worth it to maintain its quality
for as long as you can. If you guys have any more unique tips on how you take care of your
bags? We’d love it if you share it with us in the comments section below!

10 Must Have Essentials in a Girls Handbag

blog
We women have the ability to carry the entire universe in our handbags. It 
sometimes baffles me at the kind of things I pull out, when I sit to clean my 
handbagAll sorts of essentials and inessentials start popping out of the 
handbags, shopping bills, ATM receipts, prescriptions, visiting cards, lip balm, 
sanitizer, coins, hair clips, tissues and the list just goes on. We just love stuffing 
our bags with almost everything that we lay our hands on. This is what got me 
thinking of what are the 10 must have essentials that every girl’s handbag must 
have! 
 
Fun Fact: I sat down and dumped all the contents of my bag on my bed and I 
must admit it was a tough task to compile a list of 10 must have essentials from 
a bunch of items in my bag! 
 
So here are the 10 things, which I feel is a must have for all genre of women, be 
it a workaholic, a shopping freak or a carefree teenager. 
 
Here go’s the list  
 
1)Pepper Spray:  This tops my priority list and is a must have have in 
every girls handbag. With the rising number of cases of women assault in 
our country in recent times, pepper spray is a given for every girl’s 
self-defense & security.    
 
2)Hand Sanitizer:  This is another essential that tops my list, especially if 
you’re a person who travels by public transport; this is sure shot remedy 
to keep yourself germs free! 
 
3)Wallet:  Well, shopping and all our needs would be impossible without a 
money wallet. It’s a very obvious essential, but I’m just stressing on the 
fact that without a money wallet, stepping out of our house would be 
plain stupid. 
 
4) Pen:  To note down “things to do” or any other important information 
during the day. 
 
5)Post It:  From pens we move to paper, and post it’s are just perfect and 
colorful to note down all those details.  It comes handy if you want to jot 
down a list or quickly note a phone number, or want to remember 
something important.  
 
6)Tampons/Pads:  Always have one or two tampons/pads in one of the 
small zipper section of your handbag.  Not only these help in an 
emergency situation, but also helps you give it to someone who is in dire 
need of it. 
 
7)Makeup CompactA small compact powder will keep you fresh all day. 
With the crazy pollution and weather, this surely comes handy to make 
you look “fresh like a Lilly”. It’s advisable to have a compact with a 
mirror so you need not carry one separately. 
 
8)Lip Balm:  I’m sure that this goes without mentioning and you girls must 
be carrying at least one in your handbag (I carry two). Lip balms do the 
magic! Not only do they moisturize and hydrate your lips but add a touch 
of glam and glow to your face. 
 
9)Perfume Testers:  Carry those small tester perfume that you get as 
freebies in your bag. Sprinkle a few sprays just before reaching your 
all-important occasion and you’re ready to work your charm with that 
soothing fragrance. 
 
10)Mint Chewing Gums / Mouth Freshener:  Talking about fragrances, 
how can we ignore “Bad Breath”. OH! It’s a major put off if your mouth 
stinks! Keep a pack of mint, chewing gum or any other mouth freshener 
to keep that bad breath away. Also, you can pop one after a meal, as you 
surely don’t want your friends to know what you ate for lunch! 
 
So, here’s my list! If you girls have any more must-have items in your bag 
suggestions, then please go ahead and mention in the comments section below, I 
would be happy to add it to my list!
