Empty

Start by emptying your bag’s pockets. Remove and store all valuables in one place, then throw out the ATM receipts, food wrappers and any other knick-knacks that you do not need.

Invert

Invert the bag upside down and gently pat the bag from the outside to loosen and remove dust and food particles.

Vacuum

Now install the smallest nozzle on the vacuum and suck away all the dust from the inside and out. This process will remove any dust particle on the surface of the bag.

Scrub the stains

Make a solution of one part mild soap detergent and 4 parts water. Take a clean white washcloth and dip into the solution. Now scrub the stains away with the washcloth. Use this solution to treat stains on the inside lining as well and don’t forget the pockets!!

Wash

Get another washcloth and dip it in clean water and gently remove the soap solution from the bag.

Dry

At this stage be carful not to dry the bag in direct sunlight. This may cause discoloration and fading. Let your bag dry overnight under an air conditioner or fan.

Check inner lining and pockets to make sure the bag is completely dry or else you may end up with a bag that will become a breeding ground for fungus and will end up smelling like a rotten egg.

If by following these steps you are still unable to get rid of those nasty stains or if during the process you notice a tear in one of the pockets and are afraid that the dirt may have entered inside the lining, then we would suggest you immediately call the nearest professional bag cleaning service provider for help. Check for references amongst your friends for the best handbag cleaning service nearby and go with the one that has the best knowledge and wherewithal to clean you handbag gently and effectively.
