If you own any type of leather product you are very well aware that proper care and maintenance will ensure that it lasts a lifetime, your beautiful pink leather luggage is no different. Most fashion savvy people that buy pink luggage do so because they want to make a bold statement about their own sense of style. To that end making sure that your prized pink luggage set looks as great 10 years from now as it did the first day that you saw it is crucial. You may think that caring for your leather luggage is complicated but in reality it just involves a few simple steps.
Step 1 â€“ when you first buy your leather luggage ask the salesman to find out if it has already had a protective coating applied to it. Some manufactures will have applied a protective coating before the luggage is shipped to the store. If not ensure that you purchase and use a good spray leather protector before you use it for the first time. The leather protective spray will help the leather resist and reduce the amount of damage that can happen from water, oil and grease. Without it the leather is more prone to staining and discoloration.
Step 2 â€“ Accidents can happen at any time and when your pink leather luggage gets dirty or stained make sure to use a good quality leather cleaner as soon as possible. Obviously you will not always have immediate access to a specialized leather cleaner, in those cases just use some water and a lightly damp cloth to clean your bag and even though it may be tempting never use any household or commercial cleaners that are not specially made for leather. Put the cleaner on a soft cloth and then apply it to the affected area, make sure to not use so much that you soak the leather and then make sure to quickly dry the affected area.
Step 3 - Apply a leather conditioner to keep the leather soft and supple. The leather conditioner should be applied to a small cloth and then onto the leather bag. Gently work it into the leather using small circular motions making sure to cover all areas of the leather bag. Pay special attention to any areas that may be dried out and starting to crack. You should apply the leather conditioner 2-3 times per year and after any cleaning of your pink luggage.
Regardless if it is a classy pink luggage set or a trendy designer pink leather handbag you want to make sure that you protect your investment. With a good cleaning and conditioning routine your pink leather luggage will look hot for many years to come.
