If you are looking to invest in a concealed carry purse, you’ll discover that a popular choice for many is a leather purse.

If you buy a leather concealed carry purse, you want to make sure that you are caring properly for it. Proper care will prevent your purse from becoming dry, which can cause cracking. It also is going to protect it from the excessive moisture which can cause mildew and swelling. Here are some tips that you can use to care for your purse.
Keep Your Handbag Off The Ground
This sounds very basic but many purses become damaged or stained because they are left on the floor or the ground. Purses should not be put on the floor of a restaurant, movie theater, store, outside or anywhere else. Always keep your handbag up on a counter or in a drawer. With concealed carry purses, where a gun may be in the handbag, it is especially important that the bag be kept out of the way and in a safe place. Children are curious and likely to dig through a purse looking for all sorts of things. Better to keep the temptation from them, while helping to keep your purse clean and in good condition at the same time.
Use Clean Hands to Handle Your Purse
Concealed carry purses made of leather often absorb oils, grime and grease. Wash your hands frequently and always before cleaning your handbag. Occasionally use a dampened white cloth made of cotton to wipe your purse’s surface. But make sure you don’t make the cloth too wet since leather will take time to dry.
Use Leather Cleaner Formulated for Purses
This kind of soft soap is put on using circular motion. You then wipe it off using a lightly dampened cloth so the leather’s pores aren’t clogged. This only has to be done once or twice a year to keep the purse clean, soft and supple.
Remove Stains Quickly
Here’s a tip: stains that are organic (like blood or food) often can be removed using chalk powder. Crush some white chalk and allow it to remain on your stain through the night. Then use a clean cloth to wipe it off in the morning.
These are just some of the ways you can ensure that your leather concealed carry purse looks great for years. Take care of your purse the right way. You’ll find that it will allow you to make the most out of your investment.
