Tips For Extending The Life Of Your Bags in San Francisco
There are some hazards the City has for bags that we think you should aware of :). Let’s get into it!
San Francisco is a notoriously damp and cold city, especially for those living on the west side of town. Considering a lot of apartments and buildings are old and don’t have the best windows, dampness and mildew can be a problem in many settings. So avoid leaving your nice bags next to windows where moisture tends to collect. We recommend keeping your handbags in your closet and properly stored.
2. Eating out & Nightlife
Ah! All the great restaurants! It has been said that you could eat at a different restaurant in SF every day of the week and never eat at them all. Which means your bag is under constant threat of food and drink spills, bumps, scratches and all the hazards that come along with eating out. Consider leaving your really nice bags at home and bring along you’re favorite lower-end bag. Nothing will ruin an otherwise fun night out than a nice bag getting damaged or stained!
3. Bart and Muni
Like most people in San Francisco you might not own a car. And with good reason! There’s plenty of public and private transportation options available. That also means you’re probably getting squeezed in between people at rush hour and jumping into unfamiliar cars when you use your favorite ridesharing app. Just keep this in mind before you run out the door. It might be a better idea to take your backpack for some outings.
