The most common stains to remove from handbags are finger marks, but simple regular treatments will stop them from building up into unsightly stained areas. 

The kind of cleaning treatment you should use depends as always on the type of leather the bag is made from. Here are a few tips to handbag care... 

Grain leather
Regularly dust or brush with a soft brush, or wipe clean with a slightly damp cloth.
Treatment with proprietary cleaners or polishers should be carried out sticking strictly to the manufacturers' instructions. Never use excessive quantities - the less the better.
Once or twice a year the handbag should be wiped with a cloth dampened with white spirit to thoroughly cleanse the leather surface from old and discoloured waxes, etc. It should then be given a very light treatment with a proprietary polish, and finally rubbed up with a soft clean cloth.

Patent leather bags
Clean with a damp cloth, plus a little neutral detergent if needed.
Pigskin leathers should be treated with a silicone preparation to protect them.
Minor contamination on all grain leathers can frequently be removed by gentle rubbing with a soft India rubber eraser.
Suede leather
Brush regularly with a soft suede brush or rub gently with a plastic foam block.
Minor stains and marks may be removed with a hard rubber eraser, or by touching up the surface with a fine emery paper.
The leather should retain its colour and appearance if it is regularly treated with a fluorocarbon aerosol spray product. These make the leather water repellent, and offer protection from grease and dust.
There is a wide range of suede cleaning and colouring products on the market, and these will give excellent results - provided that the product manufacturers' recommendations are strictly observed.

In-store care
Handbags awaiting display and sale need to be kept in a cool, dry, well ventilated stockroom and be protected from direct sunlight. They should be wrapped in acid free tissue paper and kept in their boxes.
Storage of leather handbags in plastic containers isn't advisable because this can lead to discolouration of the leather.
If you have enough time, high quality grain leather bags such as crocodile, lizard and pigskin bags should be given a light coating of silicone wax and polished with a soft dry cloth to protect them whilst being stored and during initial use.

Bags on display should be protected from heat and direct sunlight because both can cause colour changes. Alternatively using ultra-violet light absorbents on windows will help protect the leather from these harmful influences.
