Gucci was founded in Florence in 1921 and it is now regarded as one of the most luxurious fashion brands in the world. If you are lucky enough to own a Gucci product, you will also be aware that the care of this product is vital when it comes to keeping it looking great and ensuring its longevity.
Brands such as Gucci have intricate stitching and use the highest quality leathers for their products. As leather is a living product, it can change in look and texture over time. It is recommended that a high use leather product is cleaned every six months and lower use products are cleaned on an annual basis.
Here at Royal Bag Spa,we take Gucci bag cleaning very seriously and our passion lies with restoring all kinds of Gucci bags to their former glory. We are able to do an amazing job while ensuring we keep the integrity and structure intact, and we make sure that we do not damage any of the original materials.
Caring for your Gucci bag after we have cleaned or repaired it
Once you get your bag back from us it will be as good as new. To keep it looking that way, we suggest that you follow these tips below:
Store your bag in a dust bag or pillowcase. Do not store it in a plastic bag or an enclosed box as these can cause damage by making the material sweat.
To help prevent scuffs, use soft materials when cleaning, such as old clothes or soft paper to protect the exterior of your bag.
Make sure that you air your bag every six months, even if it has not been used.
Remember to store your Gucci bag with a dehumidifier, as you do not want too much moisture to cause damage.
When using leather cleaners, make sure that you test the cleaner on a small-unseen area, as leather products all act differently to different cleaners.
Self Cleaning your Gucci Bag Between Visits to Royal Bag Spa
There are a number of things that you can do if you wish to clean your bag yourself between visits to Royal Bag Spa:
Step 1 - if you have a Suede Gucci bag - use a small back and forth scrubbing motion to brush gently on the surface of the bag.
Step 2 - if you have a Leather Gucci bag, wash it with lukewarm water and soap. Use soft rubbing motions to clean the surface of the bag. Once it is clean, allow it to dry and then apply some leather conditioner onto a cloth and rub this gently onto your bag.
Step 3 - For any scuffmarks, use a terry cloth or a microfiber cloth in a circular motion. This will lift away any dark marks that are on light coloured leathers.
As you can see, you can do a basic clean on your Gucci products at home but the results will never be up to the standard that we can deliver. For more info on why our Gucci bag cleaning service is always the better choice, be sure to reach out to us today.
