No, not at all. In fact it’s quite the opposite. If left on, the dirt and oils on your bag will begin
to break down the structure of the leather and may cause irreparable damage. The Handbag
Spa’s products have been specifically designed for use on delicate leathers and textiles. A
regular mild clean will lengthen the life of your bag considerably.
Unfortunately not. Some stains become permanent after being left in for too long. However,
if the stain is in the leather itself, we do have remedies that can resolve most problems.
All of our cleaning treatments are mild enough to use on these types of leathers, but some
repair techniques are not possible, due to the fact that the leather is porous.
We have many years experience in the cleaning, care and repair of leather and have been
involved in advances in leather technology. We have invested tens of thousands of pounds in
that technology to ensure our service is second to none! We work in partnership and are
endorsed by some of the industry's most prestigious manufacturers and design our own
products to ensure only the best components are added.
Many people asked us why do we need to keep our accessories clean, reason is because of
hygine purposes, you cannot imagine how dirty(germs, bacteria, mold) it is even thou it
doesn't look dirty with our naked eyes.
We prefer the words Clean & Fresh instead of New, as these words are more realistic
(compared to New) after a good clean. The reason is because common wear & tear marks are
usually viewed as stains.
All the items are hand washed with solutions instead of dry cleaning. We repeat the cleaning
process often as cleaning once will not be clean enough. As each item is serviced by one
person at a time, naturally, there will be a queue for all items that we received.
All items are subjected to cleaning services before a fresh color can be applied on the leather,
getting JND (Just Noticeable Difference) color for each item requires time to mix, curing
time is needed to ensure the fresh color bonds with the leather. As each item is serviced by
one person at a time, naturally, there will be a queue for all items that we received.
YOUR BAG Spa practice wet cleaning for all types of material instead of dry cleaning to
prevent toxic build up on your skin when you use it. Moreover, dry cleaning can never
achieve the level of cleanliness we strived to produce on every item we receive. Hand
Cleaning methods is the only way to go for us.
YOUR BAG Spa works hard to ensure that our employees and customers feel confident that
nothing in our cleaning process will harm them or the environment. We do not dry clean and
our solutions far exceeds environmental standards in the cleaning industry, and we continue
to look for ways in which we can provide superior cleaning in a safe and eco-friendly
No, in fact cleaning prolongs an item's life. Not only do stains set with age, making the item
look unattractive, but ground-in dirt and soil act as abrasives, causing rapid wear of fibers.
Insects are attracted to soiled items and cause further damage.
Frequent cleaning prolongs the life of your branded bags. Since some stains are invisible at
first, or may simply go unnoticed, it's important that you consult YOUR BAG Spa about your
items to ensure that irreparable damage is not done over time. This damage includes the
danger of stains setting in, insects eating the fabric, and ground-in dirt and soil acting as a
sandpaper-like abrasive that will rapidly wear down fibers.
Most stains must be removed prior to the cleaning process which is why it is so important
that you point out any stains before the cleaning. You should also advise us what caused the
stain (juice, coffee, etc.). We use different solutions to gently remove the stain depending on
the cause of the stain. The cause of the stain, type of fabric and whether you pretreated the
stain greatly determines our ability to remove 100% of the stain.
There is an old cleaners saying "Wear it twice, it will clean up nice." This is a nice slogan,
but you need to put more thought into your decision. The branded bag you hold on to
everyday, should follow the same logic you would to changing your bed sheets. For lesser
frequencies, bring in for cleaning every season or twice a year. For branded bags that are used
once in a blue moon, bring it over for cleaning once yearly. Cleaning is especially useful to
remove/minimise food stains, dust, soils, makeup, cologne, and perspiration. Over 99.97% of
bacteria will be removed with proper cleaning and drying. Bacteria often produces an
offensive odor (Bateria's feces) if the bag is used for too long without cleaning. Always clean
items before storage for any length of time. This will help prevent/minimise moth or mold
Most hair sprays contain alcohol which often leaves its own stain. If you get ink on your item
let us work it out for you.
We suggest that you simply blot the spill with a clean, dry, light colored cloth or paper towel.
We will work the rest out for you.
Unfortunately, some stains we just cannot remove. There are a number of variables that affect
our ability to remove stains and sometimes it's just impossible. If this is the case, please know
that we did everything possible to get the stain out and at the same time doing what is best for
Stains are generally classified into 2 types. Protein and oil based. Specialized solutions are
used to accelerate the 'freeing' of certain stains.
