how-to-take-care-of-your-bagsIf there’s something you should know about me, it’s that I am so obsessed with makeup and bags! Yes, it is a very terrible obsession, but I really enjoying collecting both. For the longest time, it was only bags I enjoyed collecting, and makeup was just something I bought on the side, but for the past 2 years, my love for makeup overtook my love for bags. My passion for bags kind of had to take the back seat, but this also meant that it was of utmost importance that I take good care of the bags I already had. In this post, I will show you guys how I take care of my bags.

How do I take care of my bags?

I always put “fillers” inside to make sure the shape of the bag stays the same.

I use these fillers I got from Oh My Bag PH. They sell fillers in many different sizes so you’re sure to have one that fits every size of your bag. These fillers are like pillows, they are very soft, yet they are also firm at the same time so they really do help keep the shape of your bag exactly the same as when you first bought it.

I make sure to take care of the handles

The handles are the ones that we hold and touch most of the time. Thus, it is most prone to damage due to handling. That is why I make sure to always use “handle wraps” to ensure that the handles of my bags are protected. I use colorful handle wraps because I love the way they brighten up my bags. I try to mix and match my handle wraps depending on my mood. I also got my handle wraps from Oh My Bag PH.

I make sure to store them properly

Storing your bag properly is one of the most important things you should do to ensure that your bag’s life lasts long. That’s why I make sure that my bags are stored properly and neatly inside dust bags. Dust bags will protect your bags from getting dirt, and other stuff on them. I use the dust bags from Oh My Bag PH as well because I love that they have a little pocket where you can put labels so you don’t have to open each of them to know which bag is inside.

I make sure to keep my bags away from too much humidity

I always place my bags in open shelves to make sure that they are able to breathe, and at the same time I place dehumidifiers inside and around each of them. Humidity is one of the main causes of molds, and I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want molds and spores to start forming on your bag. I get my dehumidifiers from Oh My Bag PH as well.

I make sure they do not get wet

We’ve all been there. We’re strolling around on a hot day, and all of a sudden it starts raining or drizzling, and our poor bags all of a sudden get wet or worse, soaked in rain water. What a nightmare! That’s why I always make sure to bring my foldable bag rain coats from Oh My Bag PH. They are very handy. You can just slip them inside your bag easily, and take them out when it starts raining. These raincoats have a way of snapping on top of your bag and just hangs to protect your bag from rain water.

I also use bag filers

I also use bag filers sometimes when I store them. These filers are also used as a bag vault, and they also prevent the formation of molds.

So that’s it guys, these are the things I follow and use to make sure that my bags are kept safe and protected at all times 🙂 Also, make sure to watch out for my What’s In My Bag + Bag Accessories Haul on my channel <3
