Brisbane Storage

Brisbanes’ Self Storage Blog

I stored my bags for a few years in a private storage. I have tried to clean them, but they still smell.

I use vinegar for an oder remover. It works great. If it can get rid of pet odors and skunk odors it should work for your purses.

    Wipe the inside down with a weak solution of bleach, then put baking soda inside for a few days, this should remove the scent. After this, clean the leather part with saddle soap and they should be as good as new.

    You need to use an enzyme cleaner that will eradicate the mildew and stop it from returning. This will alos stop the odor.

    The only one that has been tested and will not harm the leather is Em Clean.

    Three things: Bleach, vinegar, or Fuller brush degreaser. Bleach will probably harm the bags, not sure if vinegar could, but I do know the degreaser has saved many of my items stored in my basement, clothes, bags, anything that is somewhat washable. It has even ENTIRELY removed and saved some of my favorite clothing, by even removing the entire stain. It doesn’t just kill the mold and mildew, it removes everything. However, if it has actually eaten away the bag or material, nothing can restore it.
