Cleaning a handbag organizer made of felt material requires a care due to the fragile nature of this fabric. Different types of dirt require different approaches. We explore two simple methods which will help you get rid of stains and various types of dirt without damaging your organizer.
 

 

METHOD ONE: Non-Staining Dirt And Spillages

1)  Allow the spillage to dry completely before attempting to clean. This will prevent the spillage from socking further into the fabric, be it food, mud or ordinary dirt.    

2)  Once the spillage is dry, use wet wipes to clean the organizer. Ensure you wipe gently while avoiding aggressive scrubbing, as this could easily damage the fabric.    

3) Inspect the organizer to ensure all spillages are removed. Note that, leaving dirt (especially food-related spillages) inside the bag for too long can cause damage or attract pests.    

4) To remove hair and stubborn lint dirt, use a masking tape. Place the sticky side of the tape on top of the hair or lint and peel away gently. The dirt will automatically attach itself onto the masking tape.

5) Once you’re done wiping, leave fabric to air dry. Avoid drying under direct sunlight as this could also damage the material.      

METHOD TWO: Staining Spillages  

1) This kind of dirt needs to be attended to immediately after spillage. Dab a tiny amount of gentle soap onto the stain and avoid rubbing the fabric aggressively. Dab until the stain disappears. If the stain takes longer to fade away, add a small amount of soap and dab again.    

2) For stubborn stains, use white vinegar and water solution. Mix one teaspoon of vinegar with two teaspoons of water. Vinegar not only removes stubborn stains but also eliminates bad odors. However, concentrated vinegar can bleach the colors on felt fabrics. Dab the stain using the vinegar/water solution until the stain comes off.    

3) Once you’re done dabbing, rinse the organizer with cool water or using wet towel to get rid of the soap.

4) To dry the organizer, place a dry towel on the flat dry surface, place the bag on top of it and place another dry towel on top of the organizer, such that it is sandwiched in between two dry towels. Press it gently so that the excess water is absorbed by the towels. If the organizer is too big, repeat the process until all water is drained. Air dry the moisture from the organizer by either hanging it on a rack or placing it in a cool dry place - Avoid drying the organizer under direct sunlight.  

5) While the bag is wet, avoid rubbing or scrubbing it since felt materials are fragile when wet. Also, avoid using the bag until it dries up completely.
