Sometimes keeping a purse clean can be a real chore. It can actually be easier than you thought.

Take a soft damp cloth to periodically wipe down the outside. This helps rid of every day dust and minor spills. Just a periodic cleaning will keep your purse looking new.

Take cotton purses and throw into washing machine with a touch of dawn or shampoo (gets rid of the body oils) on cold water and the gentle cycle. May sound primitive but these are safe and gentle on your items. When done washing, tumble dry on low heat or air dry. Do not dry on high heat as this can damage the fibers aging your purse fast.

Dry clean only purses should always visit a dry cleaners. Don't wait until its dirty. Get it cleaned once a month. Don't try to do this at home with home dry cleaning kits.

A woman's purse can be one of the dirtiest items you own next to your shoes. Wash your hands often, use a purse caddy, never place on the floor, spray down with a light spray of Lysol from time to time. This will help cut down on the germs your spread unknowingly with your purse.

When that purse becomes a bit tattered, trade it in for a new one. Stitching becomes old and easily broken. This can make it easy for a thief to rip your favorite handbag from your clutches.
