When you really love a purse or handbag, it can be hard to let it go – even once it’s starting to show its age and look a bit shabby. Robinson's Dry Cleaner Laundry and Alterations offers handbag and purse cleaning services to our customers in the Santa Barbara area. We will get your much-loved accessories back in top shape and looking great again.
Why do I have to clean my purse?
Of course, anyone will clean their purse when it has become visibly dirty. Spills and stains are all too common, and nobody wants to lug around a filthy handbag. However, it is important to clean your bag regularly simply for hygienic purposes. Handbags and purses are a nearly perfect breeding ground for bacteria and other germs. Even when your bag looks perfectly clean, you’re still picking up these contaminants every time you touch it. Regular cleaning helps keep your bag hygienic and helps keep you healthy.
Can you restore color to my bag? How long does it take?
Yes, we can restain your leather bag to give it a uniform appearance. After your bag is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, the leather will be prepped and conditioned, and a customized color will be mixed and applied to your bag in multiple coats. After the final coat, a protective coat will be applied to seal the color, and the bag is left to dry entirely, making sure that the color is protected. This can take days, depending on the material. After drying, the bag will be inspected to make sure that the color is completely uniform, and the bag will be finished to ensure to get it looking like new. This is a very intensive process and can take days or weeks depending on our workload.
Will my bag look new after cleaning?
While a simple cleaning cannot completely restore your bag to “like new” condition, you may be amazed by how much of a difference a thorough cleaning can make. General wear and tear will still be visible on your bag, but its color will be revitalized and it will be much more hygienic.
Does cleaning harm my bag?
We work hard to ensure that we clean your bag without doing any harm to it. We use the safest possible cleaning methods, and your bag will be handled with the utmost care at all times.
