Before a quick stain becomes a stubborn spot, react! Water is counterintuitive to removing greasy stains; they can smear the stain deeper, discolor your bags, or even tear and dry the surface.

To clean leather regularly, make sure you are minutes away from your daily schedule. Use a dry and clean microfiber or a velvety cloth to wipe the dust off the surface. To remove dirt from the surface, use non-toxic detergents specially designed for the leather handbags. Avoid using water on vegetable-tanned pouches, as they range from moisture to fat. Always check the label for warnings or washing instructions from the manufacturer.

Spray some solution on a towel and then use it for further cleaning.
