When you ordered a leather tote from a leather totes store, and it gets delivered to you, you get very excited. Out of the excitation you rip off the box, lose the receipt and take off and trash the tissue papers from its inside. But this might not be a good idea; rather you should keep those things together if you want to get the best value in reselling. The tote collectors can pay you less looking at the condition of your tote, or even it may become difficult to sell in the future if you do not keep all those things. But to make your tote looking good for many more years, it is a simple task.
After utilizing your tote, the initial step is to empty it of its materials and dirt. You can turn the tote inside out if it is soft, and use a lint roller to get to those hard-to-reach places. If your tote is crafted from hard-pressed, grained natural leather, wipe the exterior of the tote gently with a wet paper towel or an alcohol-free wipe. If it is made from natural or unattended leather, or if it is exotic or suede, then dust it with a completely dry paper towel. For more significant concerns, take it to an expert.
Now that your tote is vacant as well as clean, you should pack it for it to keep its form. Use acid-free tissue paper, a small pillow, or bubble wrap. Be sure to wrap revealed hardware, consisting of fastenings and zipper pulls with the help of a piece of tissue paper so that no imprints get on it over time.
Place your tote in a soft, breathable dust bag. If you don’t have a dust bag, you can use a cotton pillowcase in a neutral color to prevent color transfer. Ensure that the dust bag is big enough to make sure that your tote does not warp when it is stored.
