How to remove hand sanitiser stains from your bag

If your hand sanitiser has leaked onto your handbag and left a noticeable stain, then here’s how to remove the hand sanitiser stain and get your bag looking good as new!

 

2020 is the year of toilet paper and hand sanitiser. One of the two is severely harmful to your luxury leather goods; any guess at which one it is?

Assuming you answered hand sanitiser, you’re correct! Antibacterial hand sanitiser is a necessity in the current climate to have on hands at all times. Whether you’re running to the market, work, or for a night out, the new norm includes excessively scrubbing our hands with sanitiser. 

While we like to think we had good hygiene prior, it was not an assumed item in your handbag. 

We often chuck items in our bags without a second thought, but that normally included our wallets, keys, and other items that aren’t at risk of spillage. 

Sadly, hand sanitisers contain alcohol which can damage your luxury leather goods. The alcohol removes the colour and causes damage to the finish on leather and coated canvas.
