Five Valuable Tips On How To Take Care Of Your Chanel Bag


If you are lucky enough to own a Chanel bag, chances are you love it like it’s your baby. If you love it like it’s your baby, there is a huge chance that you know how to take good care of your bag. Chanel bags are high end designer bags that are made with the best materials to guarantee ultimate longevity. However, some Chanel bags don’t last as long as others. Why? It all depends on how the bag is handled and taken care of.

Through the years, Chanel handbags can be really valuable collectibles if their taken care of properly. Chanel bags, especially the classics, increase overwhelmingly in price as the years pass by.

Here are few tips that you should consider when caring for you beloved Chanel baby:

Tip 1: Organize your Chanel bag to avoid small term damage. Did you know that a pen scratch in the lining of your bag can cause permanent damage? Yes, permanent damage just from a pen. Also be mindful about pencils. If it’s sharp enough, it most definitely can poke a hole in your lining. Simple mistakes like this are the most annoying. Be sure to place all objects like this in a special box or mini bag.

Tip 2: Do you ever want to just give your bag a nice bath? It’s your baby, right? Before you try any cleaning methods, be sure to know what type of material your bag is made of. Some Chanel bags can be machine washed, but most of them can’t. Look up what type of cleaning materials you need for your specific bag before diving right in.

Tip 3: Sometimes continuous small impacts can have a major long term effect on your Chanel handbag. It may not seem like much to you at the time, but eventually those small mistakes begin to add up. This tip is important. At all costs, try your very best to avoid bumping against surfaces with your bag. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.

Tip 4: This tip is an extension of the last tip. Avoid rubbing your bag against other hard materials. If you have a jacket that is made of a fairly rough material, maybe you shouldn’t wear your Chanel handbag with it often. This goes for denim material as well.
Tip 5: I’ve heard of a few ladies using bubble wrap to store their Chanel handbags when they are not using them. I can see why some people would do this because bubble wrap protects from surface scratching and damage if the bag falls. There is a downside to the bubble wrap method of storage, however. In high temperatures the bubble wrap could melt and cause it to stick to your handbag. This will result in insurmountable damage to your Chanel bag. Instead, use a clean towel or tissue paper.

Tip 6: Never, I repeat, never expose your bag to any perfume, toxic, or acid liquid. If it’s not 100% water then it shouldn’t come anywhere near your Chanel baby. Be extra careful because rain water can even cause some damage to your bag color.

      Hi Cynthia, is your bag made from leather? It’s best not to use any products, cleaning should be just using water and a cloth.

    I recently used coach leather cleaner to clean a pink caviar chanel tote, circa 2004.
    The handles were really dirty and the cleaner worked miracles. I was shocked because it also took out two very small ink marks on the bag. the cleaner does not work on the lining, and I am going to take the bag to a chanel boutique to see about having the lining replaced.
    I do not think I would use the cleaner on the lambskin or caviar bags though…
