We know how much time, energy and money you invested to acquire that perfect handbag. Now it is vital to protect it against improper storage for years or harmful conditions. Check out our guide to learn how to properly care for your handbags. If you would like expert care with your fashionable investments, you can trust in Garde Robe!
:: Unlike garments, most handbags don’t come with care labels, so always work with an experienced leather cleaning expert.
:: New bags should be “treated” inside and out with leather/suede protector free of silicone or wax (N/A patent leather).
:: Don’t apply hairspray or perfume while holding your handbag.
:: If your bag gets wet, empty the contents and allow to air dry at room temperature outside of the closet.
:: Never place handbags on the floor or seat next to you – use a purse hook.
:: Use breathable fabric bags to protect from dust and moisture.
:: Don’t keep leather/suede items in a closet near a bathroom with shower.

:: Keep leather and suede items away from heaters and skylights/windows.

:: Avoid contact with other items in the closet, especially denim.

:: Stuff bags with acid-free tissue to maintain shape and avoid creasing.

 

Fall is here and it’s time to switch your closets from summer to fall/winter wardrobes. Proper handling and maintenance of your summer garments is critical as it can extend the life of certain pieces by several years. Therefore, the wardrobe storage experts at Garde Robe created important tips that will help preserve your offseason wardrobe.

– Do not overcrowd your closets. Clothes need to breath. Crowded closets with minimal airflow and dark spaces, can promote mildew growth and create nesting places for insect larvae to feed on fabric.

– It is doubly important that items be stainfree before returning them to the closet. Carefully inspect the item for soil in good lighting before storing. Be sure to have stained garments cleaned before returning them to the closet.

– Fold and shelve summer knits to help them keep their shape. This is particularly important for seasonal and long-term storage. Knits hung under their own weight suffer from the unequal distribution of support by hangers. This can cause distortion and result in a garment that no longer retains its original fit.

– Store all your finest summer clothing in zip or snap-closure breathable bags. The ideal storage bag is breathable, has no digestible protein for insect consumption, has a zipper or snap closure, and a transparent window, so that the contents can be seen without opening the bag.

– Use the proper hanger for summer knits that are hung for short-term storage. A padded or broad shoulder hanger will prevent the telltale “rabbit’s ear” signature of a wire hanger. Clip hangers for skirts provide better support than safety pins. Folding a long dress at the waist over a suit strut hanger may be easier on the knit than hanging from the shoulder.
