Protecting a Linen Purse

I give all of the credit to my mother, who thought of this. We were together getting a few things for spring/summer and I got this lovely linen purse. I've had purses that were light colored before, and they all had really bad endings. A pink leather purse somehow got a black stain, a camel colored leather purse with a white stain, and a khaki baguette purse that just looked old and dirty by the end of summer. To avoid that outcome, I sprayed my new purse with Formula 303 Protectant, the scotchguard-esque fabric treater that I used on the dining room chairs. Works like a charm.

























I did the spraying outside on the deck, since it needs to cure in the sun and it's super smelly.

Amazing idea! Time to go to the hardware store.

Great idea because I am definitely not gentle with my purses. I once had a white leather purse and by the end of the Summer it was cream with black marks all over it.

Great idea! I just got a pair of super cute linen wedges. I sprayed them with protectant this weekend because I want them to stay pretty as long as possible.

Great tip! I love canvas bags, but they didn't so easily.
Have a great weekend!
