Tips For Keeping Your Bag in Good Condition in Miami
Harsh weather can have a negative effect on all kinds of valuable items. Whether it’s guitars, cars or handbags – the weather isn’t your friend. In Miami, your precious belongings get an even bigger dose of hardship because of extreme heat and humidity. The only luxury goods that love Miami weather are probably cigars!
So what can you do to give your handbag some extra lifespan?
1. Don’t leave your bag in your car
The internal temperature of a car sitting in the sun can easily exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit after a few minutes. Bag materials can stretch, expand and/or discolor in this kind of environment. Remember, a lot handbags are designed in Europe where the weather is a lot colder. Something to think about.
Additionally, glues will begin to melt and ooze at high temperatures. If you HAVE to leave your bag in your car, the trunk is probably the safest place for it.
2. Avoid leaving your bag in direct sunlight
Direct sunlight can discolor and destroy bag leather and fabrics. Again, this is why you don’t want to leave your bag in your car. But this is also an issue at your home, where a bag can still be left near a window or sliding door where the sun can beat down on it. Read our How to Store Your Designer Handbags article for tips on how to keep your bags in great condition at your home.
3. Watch out for the dangers of night life!
Of course you’re going to want to show off your newest bag when you go out on the town. But this is a bigger danger zone for your handbag! Busy clubs with people running into you, food and drink accidents, and trips to the bathroom – all hazardous situations. Maybe take a second to think about what bag you really want to take out at night.
4. Don’t take your good bags to the beach!
The beach is the worst place for a designer bag. Not only do you have the sun and humidity in full force, you have salt air and even worse – sand! Sand and wind is natures’ derm-abrasive 🙂 – unless you want to turn a full grain bag into nubuck, we suggest bringing a beach-friendly tote along and leave the designer bag at home.
