Prevention is the Key
Immune your bag! Using a protective spray should be the very first thing you do when you receive your leather goods. All footwear and handbags, whether they are suede or leather, needs to be protected with synthetic (stay away from the oil based versions) water proofer before use. Minx recommends Woly Combi Care Water Proofer Spray.
Reapply protector every 3-4 weeks to keep the leather soft and resilient.
Wear with Care Handbags and Footwear
NEVER overfill your handbag or evening bag, as this can put stress on seams, fastenings and straps and spoil the shape. Please try hard to keep the load reasonable.
Light leathers should be treated with extreme care – denim and dye can (and probably will) rub off on to the leather with no easy way of removing. Ensure your denim is colour fast.
White Handbags are extremely sensitive to light, and the leather will turn yellow if it is exposed for too long to spotlights, fluorescent lamps or natural sunlight.
Avoid handling your bag after applying foundation, perfume, body or hand creams, this will stain the leather.
Do not place your Minx bag on the floor, use a handbag hook. Any tough surfaces will possibly scratch the leather.
Patent Leather can be rejuvenated with Vaseline. Use a soft cloth and gently apply a small amount to your product. Rub gently until surface is shiny.
Wearing footwear and handbags often will inevitably result in rub marks, where the leather brushes against clothing etc. Minx recommends you swap your bags often to avoid constant rubbing and wear on one bag.
For stronger leathers (nappa or pull-up), protect, waterproof and moisturise with a product like Elephant Leather Preserver. Be sure to test any care products on a spot of the leather not easily visible e.g. Inside seam or pocket.
Always apply cleaning and protective product to a soft cloth, not directly on the bag.
Suede leather footwear and handbags should be regularly brushed with a soft suede brush. Minor stains and marks may be removed with a suede eraser. The leather should retain its colour and appearance if it is regularly treated with synthetic water proofer. These preparations make the leather water repellent, and in particular, impart grease and dust repellence.
Suede that has been rain-marked should be allowed to dry naturally and then brushed up with a suede brush. For serious stains, it is best to see a professional. When storing suede, wrap leather handles or straps in cloth so they do not rest against the suede and leave blotches.
Leather does not like water. Wipe off a wet leather handbag or footwear item immediately and let it air dry. Never use a blow dryer to dry a handbag or footwear item.
If your bag has a chain handle, dirt may accumulate in the chain links causing it to come off on your shoulder. You can avoid this by cleaning the chain with a small tooth brush or the corner of a soft cloth. Always store the chain inside the bag to avoid any scratching or indentations on the leather.
Keep fasteners and zips running smoothly by running pencil lead over the open teeth.
Driving in heels may damage the heel and back of your shoe, so remove where possible to change into footwear designed for driving.
Avoid contact with water when wearing costume jewellery as the metal may tarnish.
Minx Bronzer Puff
The bronzer may leave a residue on your clothing which is easily removed with washing. The Bronzer is mineral based so please avoid should you have an allergy to minerals.
Do not hang bags in storage; they are best kept in the packing bag they are supplied with, lying flat or standing upright and stuffed.
To help your bag keep its shape, it is best to stuff your bag with cloth or bubble wrap to keep it safe in storage. When not in use, store your bag out of direct sunlight and do not place light colours next to dark colours as this can cause colour migration, which is irreversible.
Take your handbags and footwear out regularly and let them ‘breathe’ to prevent any dust and mildew forming, they also like to be seen.
A little TLC will ensure your Minx goodies can be worn for longer.
