Let me share with you in this post the best ways to clean a faux leather messenger bag, it’s very easy and it will save you so many hassles and troubles, and most importantly, it’s going to keep your messenger bag always looking great and needless to tell you that it’s also going to increase its durability and strength as well.
Whenever I’m traveling, I always take my faux leather messenger bag with me, and trust me, it looks amazing, so amazing that most of my friends have confused it the first time they saw with a real leather messenger bag!
I hate using leather products, not because they are expensive, but because they are so sensitive and weak!
I know that what I’m saying here is going to sound strange to most of you, but it’s the reality, leather is extremely weak, for example, if you scratch it, it will tear very easily, and no matter how durable the fabric is, it will always look terrible with time, especially if you use it often.
That’s why I’ve switched to using faux leather messenger bags, in fact my favorite one is by a brand called Sorrentino, it’s very affordable and it looks amazing.
The first way to clean your faux leather messenger bag is to use saddle soap.
Yes, the same product used to clean leather shoes and faux leather upholstery!
Only this time, you are not required to use a lot, just less than a quarter of a teaspoon.
First, start by cleaning your faux leather messenger bag with a dry cloth, be gentle, and don’t scratch it, then, apply some saddle soap and start wiping gently.
It will clean it perfectly.
The second way to clean your faux leather messenger bag is to use vinegar.
And here, you have to use this technique when you have difficult stains and smelly ones as well.
For example, when you spill some sauce on your faux leather messenger bag, always be extremely reactive, be quick, and take a dry cloth, wipe gently, and then apply some white vinegar, it’s very effective.
What if you don’t have white vinegar?
Well, you can just use warm water; in fact, cold water will work as well, but not as warm water.
Just wipe gently and you are done.
Can you use faux leather cleaning products on your messenger bag as well?
Of course you can, but most of the time, you are out and you don’t have such product nearby, so, if you are at home and you would like to clean your faux leather messenger bag, then, by all means, use faux leather cleaning products, they are extremely efficient as well.
