While it's always ideal to keep your bag dry, let's face it – life happens! That's why we're here with a solution: our Waterstop spray. This magical spray safeguards your Tuscany Leather bag, ensuring its leather remains as gorgeous as ever. Now, even if your bag encounters a surprise rain shower, worry not. Whether your leather is pebbled, palmellato, or vegetable-tanned, simply dab it gently with a soft cloth if it gets wet. Then, let it air-dry naturally in a well-ventilated spot, away from direct heat. And hey, if you're curious about our full range of leather care goodies, check out our amazing TL Care collection for everything you need to keep your bag looking fabulous for years to come.
When it's time to store your bag for a bit, always remember to use the protective dust bag that's been thoughtfully included. This clever bag lets air flow, preventing any mildew mishaps and keeping pesky scratches at bay.
Now, let's talk about potential staining culprits: makeup, perfume, and pens. Before stashing your bag, give these items the boot. And as for sweets, let's keep them out too – they tend to turn moldy. Leather has a penchant for absorbing stuff, and we definitely don't want unsightly stains. After emptying the contents, use a slightly damp soft cloth to give your bag a gentle wipe-down. Just don't go overboard with water or rubbing. And don't forget to give it a little bit of extra love with our Creme Essentielle beeswax leather conditioner and give it time to dry before tucking it away.
Okay, your bag is now clean, dry, and ready for its beauty sleep. But wait, there's more! To maintain its shape, use the tissue packing paper that came with the bag. If that's MIA, regular paper without transferable colors will work too. Crumple the paper into gentle balls and arrange them to maintain the bag's natural shape and smooth out any creases.
And here's a pro tip: your bag's dust bag is its BFF. It should be roomy enough to hold your bag without folding or bending it unnaturally. If you want an extra layer of protection, a loose-fitting perforated plastic bag can be the cherry on top.
Now, where to store your treasure? Away from heat sources like the sun and radiators, please. Humid spots? Nope, they're a no-go – they might welcome unwanted mold or mildew. Avoid squishing your bag into tight spaces or piling stuff on top; we're all about avoiding creases. The easiest and most fabulous solution? Hang it up using the dust bag's drawstrings in your wardrobe or closet.
And hey, if you're like me, juggling 2-3 bags, you're in luck. You don't need to do everything above. Just empty the bag, give it a quick wipe, pop it into its dust bag, and let it hang gracefully. After all, your Italian leather handbag, especially one as luxurious as a Tuscany Leather gem, is a true investment that's meant to be cherished for years on end.
