    Thumbs up Leather Bags protection

    1. A professional dry cleaner can help you with this and pack it properly for you. ($$$)

    2. Desiccant packs, such as big versions of those little pouches you get in new shoes. This is a powder that absorbs moisture. ($)

    3. Coach leather conditioner and leather cleaner. ($)

    4. Call the toll free number for the bag’s maker and ask for product recommendations (some companies may tell you not to treat the leather with products) and about their policies on cleaning/repairs.

    5. Make sure to keep your bag in the dust bag when you’re not using it, and if you’re going to store it for a long time, stuff it with acid-free tissue or old (but clean) cotton t-shirts so the bag will retain its shape.

    6. Do not store the bag in plastic, ever. After each use, wipe the leather with a soft, dry cloth. If you use the bag regularly, clean and condition the leather a few times a year.

    7. PH-balanced leather cleaner, a non-greasy conditioner or leather balm, & a rain & stain repellent.

    Thanks for the info. Question is the best leather conditioner from coach? I have some very high end leather couches and the store I purchased them from gives me a free lifetime supply of leather conditioner. Would it be safe on my bags too?

    I think I read somewhere that it's a good idea spray leather bags with some kind of resistant to protect them from water stains ect...What is the name of this product?
