Have you ever considered how dirty the outside of your handbag is? While it may look clean more than likely it has germs and bacteria all over it.
Sometimes I cringe at the thought, especially when I see women place their handbags on public bathroom floors…. eew. Please use the hooks on the back of the door ladies! They are also often placed on the floor at your feet while you are seated on a bus, at the movies, in a food court, in shopping trolleys where it then picks up all the germs, dirt and bacteria from each of these places. Further to add to this disturbing information, what do you do with your handbag when you get home? Do you place it on the kitchen bench, dining table or on your bed? If so, you are now spreading those germs from your bag to your table, it is an endless cycle. Are you cringing now too?
How to clean your handbag
I use my homemade antibacterial wipes to clean just about everything, except I don’t use it on my handbag or purse. It’s best to avoid using products with vinegar as it may stain your handbag. Make a gentle cleaning solution as follows:Print
